My condolence for the koala Bears and kangaroos. Many have died. We have a kangaroo farm here in a nearby city.

Not sure. I don't think so. The Kangaroo Creek Farm is in Kelowna BC. Might drive out there this June.

Here is what Kangaroo Creek Farm has to say about Kangaroo meat.

"We've been asked quite a few times lately if we sell kangaroo meat. NO. Absolutely NOT. All the kangaroo meat that is on the market is from wild culled sources in Australia. Australia culls millions of kangaroos every year. Most of the meat goes into dog and cat food but some choice cuts are packaged for human consumption and exported to about 50 different countries, Canada included. It is possible to buy Australian origin kangaroo meat in Kelowna. It's touted as being of a higher nutritional quality than beef or chicken but I still don't fancy it. Sentiment aside, eating a North American kangaroo would be a very expensive proposition since buying live kangaroos from Australia is not possible and hasn't been since the 1960's. Therefore, the kangaroos that are here in North America are very valuable animals. So worry not, your favorite kangaroo is not going to get eaten!"

Forgotten history: 50 degrees everywhere, right across Australia in the 1800s
Don’t believe your lying eyes — Australian newspaper archives are full of temperatures recorded higher than 121 in the shade which is 50C. All of these temperatures in the map below are found in historic newspaper archives. Measurements done after 1910 are even done with official Stevenson screens, yet the BOM “throws them away”. It’s true that ones done in the 1800s are often recorded on non-standard equipment, or are just literally “in the shade” under cover. So some of these, perhaps many, are one or two degrees too high. But even if we take two degrees off, how scary is global warming when Australia knew many days of 48C and 49C and some at 50C 120 years ago? The BOM — supposedly so concerned about the State of Our Climate — show little interest in talking about our history or in analyzing it, or even mentioning it.

And modern temperatures are recorded on electronic equipment, sometimes in areas affected by urban heat islands (concrete and cars).

Taiwan doesn't get forty five degrees either..

Maybe thirty eight in the Southern part of the country.

I was watching a massive climate protest in Sydney. It was on the CBC, so they put their spin on it. According to the CBC, Australia's fires will continue to get worse because of Australia's rounding error contribution to C02 emissions. We pay $1.2 billion per year for that propaganda machine.

Aussie PM wants bushfire inquiry

MELBOURNE — after weeks of criticism over the handling of the bushfires scorching australia, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Sunday he will propose a national review into the response to the disaster, as the fires claimed another firefighter’s life.

The australian bush has been burning for nearly three months and the fires have killed 28 people, claimed 2,000 homes and consumed millions of acres of land and wildlife. The crisis is becoming increasingly political as the country looks at the causes and the government’s response.

“There is obviously a need for a national review of the response,” Morrison said in an interview with ABC television.

asked whether it should be a royal Commission, a powerful judicial inquiry, Morrison said, “I think that is what would be necessary and I will be taking a proposal through the cabinet to that end, but it must be done with consultations with the states and territories.”

Morrison said that the inquiry would examine the response to the crisis, including the deployment of emergency services to battle the fires at a state and local level, the role of the federal government, and the impact of climate change.

Climate change is thrown in there just to appease the progs. The fires were started by arsonists, and I believe at least some were alarmists. Alarmists are the reason there is so much fuel on the ground and why there's no cleared paths to get around fires. They should be looking at the impact of prog alarmists. Better yet, they should jail every elected Green in the country.
