One of the first things that I do in the morning is look outside and check out what sort of day it is going to be. I looked out the bathroom window this morning and my first thought was, "Gosh it's foggy.
Then I noticed that the sun was an orangey red and I knew that it wasn't fog but bloody smoke. Thick stinky smoke from yet another of Forestry Tasmanias regeneration burns..
See that smoky photo, this is what it looked like here at 7 am.. Bastards..
This photo shows what is happening.

See that helicopter.. Napalm is being used to firebomb our forests. Richard Flanagan says it best here in an article he wrote for The Guardian...
Some days I am ashamed to be Tasmanian..
