We have had major fires and had fireworks – we’ve been through this before. We had fires burning locally for 8 weeks earlier this year and didn’t call for the country to mourn – we know the risks and accept them and move on. I find it absurd that Sydneys New Years’ fireworks should be going ahead. The country has some of the worst fires raging that it has ever known. Plus Australia needs some cheering up! They have faced, and continue to face, a very difficult situation with bravery and resilience. They should celebrate that. Knee jerk reactions won’t help. I think they know the difference between bush fires and an organized, spectacular firework display! it’s not about the smoke. It’s about how there is a total fire ban in New South Wales right now and how half the state is on fire.
