Australian Police Say Arsonists and Lightning to Blame For Bushfires, Not Climate Change

Australia: Since November, massive fires have raged across the country, burning almost 15 million acres, mostly in New South Wales. The fires have killed half a billion animals, 22 people are reported dead, and thousands of buildings have been destroyed, including 1,300 homes. While some are trying to blame man-mad global warming for the blazes, summer bushfires are not uncommon in Australia. Police are now working on the premise arson is to blame for much of the devastation caused this bushfire season. Other causes for the fires include lightning strikes, a natural weather phenomenon called Dipole electrical charges, and overgrown vegetation due to environmentalist policies. Australia is only just entering its summer season and the country could be months away from finding relief.

Authorities in Australia are working on the premise that arsonists and lightning strikes are to blame for bushfires that have devastated numerous areas of the country, not “climate change” as many global warming alarmists have claimed.

Since November, the fires have struck various regions of the state of New South Wales, destroying thousands of buildings and killing at least 22 people.

Despite the fact that bushfires are not uncommon in Australia, the severity of the damage led numerous climate change alarmists to blame the disaster on man-made global warming.

Earlier this week, Bernie Sanders blamed those who were “delaying action on climate change” for “the blood-red sky and unbreathable air in Australia because of raging forest fires.”

However, according to those tasked with investigating the fires, climate change has nothing to do with it.

“Police are now working on the premise arson is to blame for much of the devastation caused this bushfire season,” reports 7 News Sydney.

Authorities in the country have formed Strike Force Indarra, comprising of detectives from homicide and arson units in an attempt to find the culprits.
