Notice that black areas of already burned woods this year... they are not little. Today Coimbra area is burning already for more than 24 hours. Houses and cars burned. Highways cutted. Mayday Mayday, Portugal is on fire... Why? Should one believe this is all natural fires? What is the interest of doing this? Sad Too sad... //edit:---------------------------- current fires in portugal: [image=http://sic.sapo.pt/NR/rdonlyres/F586F325-C7F3-43ED-B64D-4084984F5AFA/65288/img.jpg] Thanks Germany, for the 3 chopters being sent here.
