Most plant fitter's labourers would tell you that :- Fires will happen. Prudent engineering limits their spread. Anyone accessing Varanus on Google maps can see more like drill rig than ammo dump spacing. Did green aspirations overide logical engineering design? Did Apache hope to rebuild with adequately spaced installations for the coming higher price era? Is it worth $3 billion to get sanity at Darwin? When will Giz compare the green gain with the green losses from the fire?
