Close to 200 People have been Arrested in Australia For Arson, Deliberately Starting Bushfires. It's a crisis, in the words of Obamas mentor Rahm Emanuel "Never let a good crisis go to Waste". Like the Amazon Rain Forest fires of a few months back, during which the liberal claims of climate change / global warming were thoroughly and undeniably debunked, the left is attempting to fleck their fickle fingers of fear and monger on the crisis at hand.
Australian law enforcement has apprehended a small percentage of the fire-bugs, many are juvenile thrill seekers some are suspected activists, but very few. The bushfires have devastated huge swaths of the Australian countryside, yet Gollywood, the media and of course the Left continues to fan the flames of “climate change” for this crisis - adamant that it shant go to waste.
Zero Hedge cites figures obtained from the Australian Associated Press claiming a total of 183 people have been arrested on the Australian continent and neighboring Tasmania. Prison sentences of up to 25 years are possible, but not probable especially with the minors involved ... and No Greta Thunberg has not been to Australia. In the province of Queensland, authorities claim that 103 fires were deliberately set, 67 by juveniles and the other 31 being assorted degenerates such as leftists.
Dr Paul Read, co-director of the National Centre for Research in Bushfire and Arson, said the great majority of brushfires are deliberately lit by "cunning, furtive and versatile criminals". "About 85 per cent are related to human activity, 13 per cent confirmed arson and 37 per cent suspected arson," he said.
Adult arsonists are another issue entirely, Dr Read, a Research Fellow at Melbourne's Monash University, said he was more concerned about older arsonists, who are likely to light fires on high fire danger days and closer to populated areas. "These people are above the age of 30 and get more dangerous the older they get," he said.

No progressives or other terrorists have been caught red handed in Austrailia, although some are suspect. The Amazon fires of last year however are a different case entirely. It was reported that some of these fires were intentionally set at the behest of Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio and a cohort of leftist “philanthropists” in an environmentalist 'false flag attack'. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro publicly accused DiCaprio and associates of setting many of these Amazon fires on purpose, while others were an annual occurrence created by farmers clearing land.
DiCaprio held the "royal" title of UN Messenger of Peace with a special focus on climate change, from which he was urged to step down. He is alleged to have received millions of dollars for his role as star and producer of The Wolf of Wall Street, alleged by the DOJ to have been funded by stolen Malaysian money. He is also alleged to have laundered money for his charity, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. [ Leonardo DiCaprio Urged to Step Down From UN Climate Change Role]
