I agree, the smoke has been around in albury/Wodonga for a while, occasionally it cleared up but it kept coming back. Since The beginning of December it has been around pretty much.

Should have been to albury/Wodonga last light, there was an evacuation zone on the eastern outskirts of Wodonga and I was luckily just outside of that zone, I'm now in an advice zone (yellow area) so that means that the fire is now under control. We still need to be careful with the air quality though.

The sky is blue again for me at the moment so at least that's something.

Seems like the bushfire smoke could be making an entire lap around the world:

This means it could reach Africa.....

Sad news: Melbourne is now the world's second polluted city :(

Perhaps the government could dismantle a few old buses and donate them for uses as caravans/accomodation rather than sending them off for scrap?

I don't think there are any K or C sets available right now.

Interesting read, apparently, the fires are now hurting the fossil fuel industry....

Maybe a lesson for Adani?

To be fair, I don't think either of the mining industries (BHP or Adani) predicted to have their production being impacted by the bushfires.

There has been a bit of rain lately, which is perhaps a bit of good news for those tackling the blazes and more is expected this evening and over the next few days. I don't know how much is expected, but NSW and Gippsland Victoria need a ton of rain (and not the just the odd millimetre or two)

It's not climate change. For the last 4 years I've been working on a case in court involving 130 arsonists and several associated criminals, 80% of the fires were ignited by arsonists, all firefighters will give you the same type of story in detail even alot of arsonists were setting fires naked ! the people that planned it got away with it.
