Model Kaylen Ward is raising money for Australian bushfire relief by offering nude photos in exchange for donations

When you’re fighting climate change it’s
A smart move to take pics of your bits
For some men don’t care
How the kangaroos fare
But they’re willing to pay to see tits

          I admire the beauty of her compassionate mind, but unfortunately her photogenic beauty distracts from that moral admiration.

    Just reading this article from 2015 where a former bushfire scientist from Australia warned the Inspector-General for Emergency Management in Victoria of “a massive bushfire threat” because of a”misguided green ideology”. which had caused “forest fuel levels to climb to their most dangerous level in thousands of years”.

    Could it be that this mismanagement was the key factor in causing the fires on such a massive scale over above the climate change factor? Anybody?

      No. ‘Green deology’ generally includes good forestry and land management and has never precluded controlled or seasonal burns or cutting fire corridors, particularly if the forestry ecosystem does not have enough large herbivores to control the underbrush and enough apex predators to control the herbivores. Far more likely the ‘vested interests, political failure and mismanagement’ he also blames haven’t the slightest tint of green on them, except as either greenwashing or the preferred colour of their scapegoats. Having said that, climate change is a risk multiplier to all the conditions that lead to fire outbreaks, so if you don’t listen to what people are telling you, in terms of both proper land management and climate change, everything will be worse. so BLOODY WELL LISTEN AND STOP LOOKING FOR EXCUSES AND CAVEATS.

        You’re gas Nigel. You seem to have me confused with someone who denies that extreme climatological change is afoot or is dismissive of the anthropogenic climate change theory.

        What I understand from the bushfire expert when he says “misguided green ideology”, is that he means that that particular green ideology didn’t have the right approach, was too short-sighted, not that green ideology is inherently bad in general.

        I’m not looking for excuses or caveats, as you say, to deny the seriousness of climate change. I’m just saying that in times of crises, it’s crucial to stay level-headed and try to consider what the root causes of a problem are; to resist getting swept along in a wave of hysteria where blinkered-thinking can set in. Only that way might we be equipped to know what the best course of action is. If we shout “SOMETHING MUST BE DONE, ANYTHING!” and then content ourselves with things like phony “green new deal” capitalist solutions which corporate and financial backers are lining up to draw massive profits from, it will be like trying to dig ourselves out of a hole, making things worse in the long run, in my opinion. It won’t actually address the heart of the problem ( eg. things like over-consumption, vast wealth inequality and unfettered corporate power).

        1. Nigel

          Well I eagerly await whatever alternative solution you find acceptable, as presented in a coherent and politically viable manner.

          1. f_lawless

            Well guess what – I don’t personally have a step-by-step solution ready at hand. But I do believe that step one is not giving in to corporate-driven faux solutions. In fact, the onus is on those who buy into those solutions to justify them. Realism is not defeatism. It’s what keeps hope alive

            ‘ …Just as we voice our objections against any form of inhumanity regardless of our systematic problem, when we see certain environmental policies being subservient to the corporate agenda, likely to result in worsened conditions for the people, we discuss them.

            There shouldn’t be anything different about pointing out the US military aggression and the fallacy of US environmental policies, especially when they are forwarded by the same western establishment. When we find the carbon capture schemes to be disingenuous, for example, we simply point it out.

            We demand an answer to why corporate “solutions” are upheld as people’s “solutions”. And people who buy into false narratives should be noted as not credible leaders in people’s movement.

            So the question “what is your solution?” really should be directed at those who subscribe to those erroneous “solutions.”

            They need to be asked how those solutions would be a worthy cause at the first place, and why cogent criticisms against implementations of destructive schemes can not be embraced because “we can’t wait for a socialist revolution”… ‘
