Smoky sunrise on 16 March 2019, Guildford, Central Victoria, photo Bob Aughton.
The Smoke comes from bushfires burning for weeks in the ranges to the east of Melbourne, including parts of Melbourne’s water catchments. As in the US, poor forest management based on green ideology has meant little fuel reduction burning has been done in Victoria recent years. Not surprisingly our Socialist Left government has gone very quiet about the bushfire emergency, as they say you reap what you sow!
