    The world is on fire...

    @pith helmet, naively, I actually didn't think that the subject of wildfires was such a politically charged subject matter. I am UK based, we've started to have some small wildfires here, but no-one has used them as political football, if that it what is happening in the USA - obviously a much...

    Good post Pith helmet, well yes, I didn't comment about "that" post as I agree with a lot of it., but it didn't just write off this thread due to the source of the news item. But I suppose in balance, it was probably as "bad" as others, as it didn't focus on the subject in hand either.

    The world is on fire...

    I was trying to raise some awareness about the wildfire problem and how it is spreading to new areas. I agree somewhat with this post except for climate change = how they raise their children? As climate change does affect all of these things, however, the subject is about the spread of...

    The world is on fire...

    Yes I did, in the area as designated by XP as conservation related, be it a politically charged subject or not. You could say that about all threads in this area, are we not allowed to post up? We're supposed to be discussing the chosen topic not the politics around it. Sent from my I3312...

    The world is on fire...

    No, not bothered about opinions against the Guardian., it's far from being a sacred cow for me. The Washington Post article re right wing professors. This is where some people fall down, they berate 'facts' reported by the media and then use other 'facts' reported by the media. You can't have...

    Cough, took a look. Not really my cup of tea old chap [emoji4], but each to their own. Couldn't find the environment section either, am I missing the point? Sent from my I3312 using Tapatalk

    The world is on fire...

    Well, I agree with you, but there are right wing professors too. We all take journalism with a pinch of salt and try to work out the truth. I read the Guardian as IMHO it's one of the better free sites, also more balanced than a lot that's available, their environment pages are pretty much...

    Fantastic read, really enjoyed your trip report. Felt laid back and relaxed, good writing style and supported with excellent pics. Enjoyed travelling along with you from my desk, made a nice break and made my work day a lot more bearable. Thank you for taking the time to post up.
