Now that the fire danger has reduced a little, it is time to look to the future.
And what a bleak future it is.
The Greens and their NGO allies have attempted to tie up 570,000 hectares of native forest with no thought as to how any fires in this area could be fought.
Now that Gunns has gone, we have fewer trained people to fight fires and keep fire trails open.
Forestry workers are disappearing at a rate of knots so they cannot help and Parks and Wildlife personnel are being reduced due to mismanagement of the state’s budget.
Will there be any fire trails if the proposed legislation is passed? One suspects not.
