IF YOUR HOME OR TOWN IS AMONGST THE GUM TREES
Y0U CAN EXPECT THIS EVERY 30-40 YEARS
ALTERNATIVELY
YOU CAN LIVE IN A BOTANICAL GARDEN OF ANCIENT PLANTS FROM OUR FIRELESS FORESTS

THESE PLANTS ARE OUR CABINET TIMBERS, BUSH FOODS AND MEDICINES. THESE PLANTS DO NOT CATCH FIRE AND DO NOT BLOW OVER.
PRIOR TO
HUMAN ARRIVAL AND REGULAR BURNING 50,000+ YEARS AGO,
THESE PLANTS DOMINATED THE AUSTRALIAN LANDSCAPE FOR OVER 200,000,000 YEARS.
IT HAS TAKEN 50,000 YEARS OF REGULAR BURNING TO MAKE THIS CONTINENT AS FLAMMIBLE AND ARID AS IT IS TODAY.
TODAY ONLY SMALL REMINANTS OF THESE PLANTS SURVIVE IN FIRE REFUGES ALONG STREAMS AND THE MOUNTAINS OF EASTERN AUSTRALIA.
ALL OVER THE WORLD OUR ANCESTORS WHO WERE TRADITIONALLY EDGE-OF-THE-FOREST DWELLERS, LEARNED TO USE FIRE TO MANIPULATE THE ENVIRONMENT TO CREATING GRASSLANDS. CONSEQUENTLY OUR SPECIES HAS DESTROYED
THE MAJORITY OF THE PLANETS PRIMARY FORESTS (RAIN FORESTS)
AND CREATED MOST OF THE WORLDS DESERTS INCLUDING HERE. ALL OVER THE WORLD MANY SPECIES OF ANIMALS HAVE BECOME EXTINCT INCLUDING MEGAFAUNA AND NEANDERTHALS AS REGULAR BURNING DESTROYED
THE FLORA, FAUNA AND THE ENVIRONMENT
THESE SPECIES DEPENDED UPON TO SURVIVE.
