Has there been a two-fold increase in hazard reduction burning in NSW this decade?Landscape flammability expert Philip Zylstra says NSW has seen twice the amount of prescribed burning this decade compared to the last. RMIT ABC Fact Check runs the numbers. Dr Zylstra's analysis showed that in the 10 years to June 30, 2019, 668,191 hectares of NSW national parkland was burned in NSW and the NSW government was committed to burning 130,000 hectares a year than it doesn't look like enough was done. So only half the area deemed requiring hazard reduction burning was actually done? How is this not more ABC propaganda bullshit? 'Despite the limitations outlined by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment spokeswoman, Fact Check has used the NPWS SEED data to analyse Dr Zylstra's claims of increased burning within national parks.'
