Australia is on fire and the fake news media, desperate Democrats, and stupid celebrities have been telling us that it’s all thanks to “climate change.”

Weather nutjobs have been shaming us and lecturing us about the evils of climate change, as they point to the raging Australian fires as “proof” of their cause.

Well, it turns out they were wrong….again.

A total of 183 people have been arrested by police in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania for lighting bushfires over the last few months, figures obtained by news agency AAP show.

In New South Wales, 24 people were arrested for arson, risking prison sentences of up to 25 years.

In Queensland, police concluded that 103 of the fires had been deliberately lit, with 98 people, 67 of them juveniles, having been identified as the culprits.

“The link between arsonists and the deadly fires that devastate Australia every summer is well known and well documented, with the rate of deliberately lit fires escalating rapidly during the school holiday period,” reports Breitbart’s Simon Kent.
Around 85 per cent of bushfires are caused by humans either deliberately or accidentally starting them, according to Dr Paul Read, co-director of the National Centre for Research in Bushfire and Arson.

“About 85 per cent are related to human activity, 13 per cent confirmed arson and 37 per cent suspected arson,” he said.

“The remainder are usually due to reckless fire lighting or even just children playing with fire.” [Zero Hedge]

Australian authorities have determined that the cause of the blazes was arson.

Now they’re forming a “strike force” to investigate the motives behind the nearly 200 people who have been arrested.

Thankfully the authorities in Australia are not “climate change cultists” and they properly investigated and discovered the REAL reason this tragedy happened.

What is really disgusting is how these leftist climate nuts use actual tragedies like this to whip people up into a frenzy and fundraise.

Climate Change is a scam – top to bottom.
