Jon Dee, founder of environmental charity Planet Ark,said the US Forest Service had eight firefighting planes available on 24 hours’ notice but the Australian government had not asked to borrow them. “Why are we not using these planes in the current bushfire crisis?” he tweeted.
The Independent has contacted Australia's department of the prime minister and cabinet, and the department for home affairs, for comment.
NSW fire and rescue commissioner Greg Mullins said $11m (£5.8m) provided by the federal government to boost aerial firefighting earlier this month was “smoke and mirrors” and “too little too late”. He also claimed dozens of aircraft were mothballed in the northern hemisphere that could be available “in a week”, the Sydney Morning Herald reported. “What I and 29 other former chiefs are saying is that with longer and overlapping fire seasons it is just very clear that we are going to run out of large aircraft,” he said. “They should be looking at these scooping aircraft because Croatia, Italy, France, Portugal and Canada have all got them, and they are all in mothballs in winter. There are dozens of them and they are cheaper than jets.
“If they [the government] wanted to make an impact, just about every state and territory could have a couple of them if the government kicked the tin.
“They could get on to the Canadian government and I am sure they would be here in a week. They’d have as many as we want.”

As I have said many times on my site: stop believing all the nonsense that you're being spoonfed by the mainstream media and do your own research. Also, if you think that the bushfires in the Amazon and Australia are as bad as it gets, think again, and do research on the consequences of 5G for ALL organic life on the planet.
A month or so ago it came to my attention that 5G has the millimeter-wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum at it's very core. As this has extremely serious consequences for all organic life on the planet I decided to write this article.
Let me give you another example: the US Airforce and Raytheon developed a weapon for crowd control called ADS (which stands for 'Active Denial System') that uses millimeter waves. This system isn't only used in war zones but can also be used on civilians in urban areas. So what does ADS do? The waves penetrate clothing and generate a sensation of intense burning pain on the target's skin. The PR spin is that this isn't lethal but all that has to be done to make it lethal is of course to increase the intensity of the wave. Now imagine this technology being active in every cell phone, appliance and product that you use and the potential for misuse.
There are some very interesting and highly informative presentations and articles online about the dangers of the 5G roll-out. I strongly advise you to educate yourself about the health and environmental consequences if you haven't done so yet.

Arithmetic, Population and Energy (Forgotten Fundamentals of the Energy Crisis) is a no-nonsense program on the fast approaching consequences of sustained economical growth with finite resources, presented by Prof. Emeritus Albert A. Bartlett.
Thrive is an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what's REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream — uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives. Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, Thrive offers real solutions, empowering people with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming their lives and their future.
Although I’ve placed this documentary in the Science & Technology section, Thrive covers many –if not all- of the other topics that are also sections on this website.
