It’s all a ruse.

The Aussies have managed to save the last remaining Wollemi pines, the oldest known genus of tree on earth.

Why's it good news? Most people wouldn't give a shit, just like most people don't give a shit about all the other extinct trees.

The only thing that I know about Wollemi Pine is that it's a brand of Australian wine I like drinking some Saturday nights

For some reason, you were given a -1 for that. Probably off somebody who doesn't like that wine.

Can you get this stuff in Canada or Britain, Blackleaf?
Taylors "Promised Land" Merlot.
https://www.taylorswines.com.au/promised-land#
Also, Seleks”Taste Collection” Merlot is great for special occasions.

Seleks is Kiwi stuff.
A lot of wine growing areas were devoted in the Australian bush fires, but Taylors vinyards was spared.

30 ml is just a shower. Where I work we got 210 in one day. But yes even a little rain in a fresh burn will have serious consequences. Happens to us every year.

The entire country is going to be susceptible to flooding and erosion for quite some time.

Sorry, its 330 mm or 13 inches just south of Moreton Bay.
........................
"Several major highways were cut off, while theme parks closed in southeastern Queensland after some of the heaviest rain in months fell in the state. Local media showed video footage of dozens of vehicles being swept away in flash flooding.
Standing water reached 330 millimeters (13 inches) in some areas and Australia's Bureau of Meteorology tweeted that over 100 millimeters of rain was expected to fall across the night and early Saturday morning in many other locations.
The Bureau of Meteorology for Queensland also told drivers to "take care on the roads — if it's flooded, forget it."

Taylor's Promised Land Merlot I've seen in my local Sainsbury's supermarket. I've never tried it, though. But the Wollemi Pine I've had a few times on Saturday nights. I'll have to see if I can buy the Selleks, too, and try that. I don't think I've ever had a New Zealand wine.

I like drinking beer after work, but on Saturday nights, when I'm playing on the Xbox like now, I like white wine or Cococariba, which is what I'm drinking now. Its a Caribbean rum and coconut drink and tastes delicious.

Must try to track down a Wollemi Pine.
Cant drink a Merlot if its hotter than +30C.
Sauv Blanc time, or a quenching ale in a frozen glass.
Ive got buds who drink Cuban rum and we smoke Cochibas for style!

A tragedy that could have been avoided if Climate change terrorists woulda kept their matches in their pocket.

I used to wrench and I used to fly.

It's odd to lose a Herc. A very dependable aircraft

I don't care on what side of the issue for climate change you're on.


This is devastating for the entire planet.

It is unusual but then they were not really designed for firefighting. Conditions are extreme and there are lots of unpredictable variables. It would be nice to find out the cause, if it is ever determined but somehow that is the kind of thing that never seems to make the papers.

Hey Hoid,
I'm sure we could play "I know, do you know, ....oh, what about bla bla"?
I thought your signature was cool, showed you had a sense of. humour, and did't give a sh*t.
