Until people start to lose their lives in developed countries, nothing meaningful will happen. Things burning is just a "meh" to most people.
Australia is a pretty developed country and people have already died in these fires.

When asked whether they thought climate change could’ve contributed to it, the climate denying prime minister ignored the question while the state premier said it wasn’t appropriate to discuss it at this time. Same tactic the worms in the US use whenever a mass shooting happens.

So we’re getting thoughts and prayers in lieu of meaningful action on climate change.

I was staying in a hotel the other day, and Fox News was on in the lobby. The segment that was on was a few people mocking the concept of "climate change refugees" as an "insane" "totally crazy" term made up by "lunatics like Pelosi"

The segment was so disgusting that I felt nauseous.

Air pollution is a scary thing, look at what is happening in India. I imagine the same thing will kill most people in the west inevitably.

Obviously its worse in the east currently.

Just to put this in a little bit of context, Australia has not seen fire conditions this severe since immediately before Black Saturday in 2009, a bushfire catastrophe that killed 173 people, the deadliest natural disaster in the countries history.

This is not a game.

~50 people died in the Ash Wednesday fires in 1983
4 people died in the 1994 fires in NSW
~170 people died in the Black Saturday fires in 2009.

I can assure you bushfires are not "meh" to most Australians.

elementary school children were shot dead in the most financially and educationally developed region of the United States

- Nothing was done about gun control
- We have groups that fucking deny that it happened......this happened in 2012 with wide-scale media coverage



So yeah, fuck all will be done about this regardless
