      Not quite sure what you mean, its a fire, its devastating, and it seems even they are holding back directly from that as a whole.
      Here is from a climate change newspaper, notice they say it but have no facts on it..

      "Why These Australia Fires Are Like Nothing We’ve Seen Before
      More than 16 million acres have gone up in flames. And it has happened in populated areas, unlike most of the world’s other blazes of this scale."

      Saying it's a sign of the times that the media is using terms like "apocalyptic" overlooks the way the media is prone to sensationalism at the best of times.
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      Well, what would you call it... with hurricanes the size of Florida, over a 1000 earthquakes in just one of the islands in the Caribbean, Brazil being swept much like Australia just a few months ago, America on the edge of a political firestorm... We need to open our eyes and ears.

      I don't think those people did it, since they won't get anything for burning those trees. The police should investigate and then send for jail. Sometimes it may happen falsely, but taking some strict actions it won't happen again.
