Btw, it was a good call from the Vic Fire Authorities to declare the day as 'Extreme' and not 'Catastrophic', which is the highest level of fire alert, considering it was 40+ and windy. They were right, so 'way to hold your nerve' and not wear the term 'Catastrophic' out. There will be worse days to come when you need people to know 'Get out or you will be fried'.

All round, the Victorians have handled the situation pretty well. They were seriously dangerous conditions. They handled it way better than Queensland handled their self-started fire disaster.

Interestingly the Victorian energy minister did start talking about climate change in her press conference. It was more as a politician's excuse used to defend the power outages, than any bold plan to get the fuck off fossil fuels now or 'We're all gonna fucking DIE!!!!' - but at least it was acknowledged as a thing
