I’m absolutely fed-up with politicians not doing anything in relation to climate change; their policies make them more dangerous than the terrorists we are meant to be worried about.
They lie, they cheat and obfuscate. It has been recognised at COP25, Madrid, that the Australian government has not been reducing fossil fuel emissions as they claim. The Umpire has caught them out. Volunteer firefighters are not even being equipped properly, arguably they are the most important people in Australia at present. Firies around the world through first-hand experience regard climate change as having an impact on the severity of fires. Politicians, on the other hand, are driven by their ideology which sifts through information from experts and cast it aside.
Exporting fossil fuels from Australia has global consequences through extending the strength of extreme natural events.
The Australian government promotes self-regulation; an irony, as they are unable to regulate fossil fuels themselves.
If you wish to commit crimes against humanity you take the Morrison and Albanese policy of business as usual. Currently, we are at a state where we are playing Russian Roulette. Here in Australia, we have had huge floods, huge bushfires, the largest river system breaking down, and drought. The greenhouse gases created by the bushfires has been estimated to be almost half of Australia’s budget and we are only just into summer.
The science informs us it is not going to get better in the future should we continue with a business as usual paradigm.
Our children are expendable, making dollars in the short term is more important than our children. Politicians and fossil fuel executives are showing a careless attitude towards their own children.
Think that’s hyperbole … just take notice of what’s happening in other parts of the world. For example, think about what has happened to Victoria Falls, it now runs at a trickle. Greenland is another example of what is happening to the environment, humungous amounts of ice is melting. Or, you could take notice of permafrost breaking down and what that entails.
Taking into account what is happening in Australia and every other continent, it is very hard to argue against anthropogenic climate change. If you disagree, then please provide data that contradicts what is being picked up on a daily basis by satellites showing the effect of greenhouse gases on the atmosphere. If you still disagree then get drunk and addle your brain further.
