Ban Bunnings Sausage Sizzle – Vegan Power!

Why Ban Bunnings Sausage Sizzle?

Ban Bunnings sausage sizzle say the Vegans. What? This is a case of a minority group having a louder voice than the majority.

The headlines are full of tales of misery and woe plus the positive aspect of the horror bushfires. Australians coming together to help their fellow man. There are many untold acts of bravery, compassion and heroism in the bushfire crisis.

Vegans

Then jumps up the vegan contingent. They want the Bunnings sausage sizzle banned. They say it contributes to the bushfire severity because meat comes from cows. Cows fart methane. Methane is a greenhouse gas.

The amount of meat eaten over the years has reduced with more people choosing to be vegetarian. So it stands to reason there are fewer cows. Back to Bunnings. The amount of meat in a sausage is as low as 30%. All proceeds from the Bunnings sausage sizzle will go to those in need after the fires.

I respect the right to choose. You can be a vegan if you want. But do not use the suffering and pain of others to further your cause.

Bushfires Devastate The Eastern States

As bush fires ravage NSW the regional mayors are speaking out. They say that the current devastation caused by bushfires is a result of climate change. 

Scott Morrison and Michael McCormack say “linking this with climate change is wrong.”

 

Loss and Death

Properties destroyed and the people killed over the weekend is due to these bushfires.

Michael McCormack said on ABC Radio that people need sympathy, help and shelter. Not the ravings of capital city greenies. His words, not mine.

The Mayor of Glen Innes said McCormack should read scientific evidence. Then make his statements.

Carol Sparks (Glen Innes Mayor) believes it is a fact proven by science. Climate change is happening now.

Another Mayor, Claire Pontin, feels cranky towards Mr McCormack. He stated, “we’ve had fires in Australia since time began.” (What the?)

Is Ms Pontin is correct is saying that this would not have happened 50 years ago? Yes.

Politicians of all parties need to unite in forming a plan to combat climate change. And they need to do so now.

Bushfire Blame

Part of the blame for the current bushfires is being apportioned to the drought. To prevent drought affecting the land we should irrigate the land. This can be by piping water inland from Desalination plants.

In the late 19th century C.Y. O’Connor constructed a 550km long pipeline to supply the WA goldfields with water. If it could be done then, it can be done now.

It seems that our Canberra politicians are burying their heads in the sand.

Meteorologists know that climate change is causing bushfires to worsen each year.

Now is time for action

32 former Fire & Rescue Chiefs wrote to PM Morrison earlier this year. They predicted a bad fire season and requested a meeting to develop an action plan. No meeting took place.

Why Bushfires Are Predicted To get Worse

Why Bushfires Are Predicted To Get Worse Than Ever

Bushfire

Why Bushfires Are Predicted To Get Worse. Bushfires are being fuelled by drought. The humidity levels drop which causes the understorey to dry creating more fuel. Native Australian gum trees start to drop leaves attempting to survive the lack of water. This is partly why bushfires are predicted to get worse.

Lightning strikes provide the spark for many bushfires. Sadly, many get started on purpose by idiots. Australian bushfires can get out of control fast.

Climatologists predict that as climate change occurs globally, there will be more bushfires. These fires result in the devastation of crops, wildlife, stock, and homes. Some wildlife will survive by fleeing, but there will be nothing to graze on after the fire. No flowers to produce nectar. No nesting materials. No water to drink.

Bleak Outlook

Further forecasting shows that weather events will become more extreme. Areas that get monsoons will get wetter whilst areas with low rainfall will become drier.

Events know as ‘Megadroughts’ will be frequent. A Megadrought is a drought that lasts over thirty years. The risk of a Megadrought occurring in the US will be 80% by 2099.

Bushfires generate their own weather patterns. There may be a rush a wind ahead of a bushfire even though the local winds are low. This rush of wind speeds the growth of the fire and contributes to the fire becoming uncontained. In other words, even if the wind seems light, fires can advance faster than expected.

Effects Of Climate Change On Wildlife

Effects of Climate Change on Wildlife

Climate change affects humans and wildlife. Effects caused by climate change on one part of our ecosystem affects others.
 
Pollinators, (bees, butterflies etc), are essential to life. They struggle to adjust to climate changes. Their biorhythms get out of sync with the blooming of plant life. This results in poor pollination and reduced crop yields.
 
Warming waters, both oceanic and land based, alter the depth where fish can live. Oceans higher in acid prevent corals, lobsters, crabs and other crustaceans from maturing.
 
Our wetlands will dry up meaning less breeding grounds for our waterfowl. Certain species will die out altogether through habitat loss.
 
Further habitat loss will occur with rising sea levels that will impact our coasts. We will lose marshlands and mangroves.
 
Changes in climate will allow invasive plants to kill off native flora. The loss of native flora will result in no food for insects that relied on those plants. So we lose those insects to climate change too.
 
I know our governments wheels are slow to turn. But they must make changes now. Not in fifty or a hundred years.
 
By then it may be too late.

Climate Change – What is happening?

 
The average temperature on Earth increased by 2°F in the last millennium.
 
So what? That is not much, is it?
 
This may seem a small amount but it is not. Not when you look into our planets recent history. There is a record of our climate record accessible to science. This is through items such as, coral reefs, tree rings, and ice cores. The data shows the Earths global temperature to be stable of long periods of time.
 
Small temperature changes equal huge changes in our environment. The last ice age ended 11,700 years ago. During the ice age, North America had over 3,000 feet of ice sitting on it. The temperature was only between 5 and 9 d cooler than now.
 
Confidence is high in the scientific community that temperatures will continue to rise. For decades. Due to greenhouse gases in the main.
 
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) forecast a rise of up to 10d in a hundred years.
 
I will take a look at future effects next.
