Australia is burning as never before thanks to global warming right? Er...another inconvenient truth

Kids: This is the sort of chart you should NOT include in your Geography GCSE coursework on the settled science of global warming. You see it is a bit of an inconvenient truth. Instead I suggest you show links to all those breathless BBC and Channel 4 fake News reports about Aussie bush fires in the past couple of years which you can cite as “evidence” of global warming as the broadcasters did. Or alternatively, if you care about facts rather than just getting an A* with some fake news…

It seems that while the cultists insist that an ever warmer earth leads to more forest fires, the hard data from Australia shows that burn rates last year were among the lowest for 120 years and continue a multi decade downward trend.  But those are facts. Who cares about them these days? Forget data, just sing along with those great Aussie greens of Midnight Oil:

How can we dance
When our earth is turning
How do we sleep
While our beds are burning
