Why is so much of Australia barren, uninhabitable desert? Well, Aboriginals used to hunt not by actually hunting, but by burning forests to the ground. It’s called “fire foraging”.
Researchers found remains of old fauna and excessive evidence to prove this. Not only that, but Australia was likely home to some of the largest living mammals and lizards. Think prehistoric big.
This happened for thousands of years until the land was simply a waste land of desert. The only reason the coasts are largely fertile is because these were population centers of Aboriginals after they destroyed all the inhabited land.
Australia could have been a living breathing Jurassic Park if Abos didn’t exist
Look up firestick farming.
