            as an aussie i can tell you climate change is not to blame here
            the reason this is happening is because there was almost no controlled burns during the winter leaving plenty of fuel on the ground for fires
            the summer has actually been a relatively 'cool' one, nothing out of the ordinary

                    These fires were done intentionally by HUMANS. Nothing to do with climate change.

                                  Everyone needs to do there part in this whole climate issue. Individually work on how you can reduce your carbon foot print. Donate to trust worthy charities. Vote for people in place that will fight these issues.

                                    It’s really good to know people from Japan, America and other places far from here in Australia are making a difference and realizing how hard the times we are going through are. I just wanted to say thank you to people on TikTok and social media are telling others to make a difference. 💗💗

                                      So sad that this many people think climate change is real. Well, it kind of is. The earth cools and warms over hundreds of thousands of years, going from an ice age to a hot period. We are actually several thousand years late for an ice age.

                                      What's happening now is merely an infinitely small heat spike on a cosmic scale. I'm afraid human efforts to cool the planet will have extreme damage on the temperature cycle of the earth.... probably not, though.

                                                    "the most affluent of countries, operates on a depletion economy which leaves destruction in its wake. Your people are driven by a terrible sense of deficiency. When the last tree is cut, the last fish is caught, and the last river is polluted; when to breathe the air is sickening, you will realize, too late, that wealth is not in bank accounts and that you can’t eat money." - indigenous wisdom

                                                              When I was growing up none of what I see on the news today was normal. All the fires all over the world, the weird weather, the way the sky looks, the way people are today like self-entitlement and how we put ourselves first and others last. How we all walk around like zombies ignoring the needy, and trying to get the biggest and the best thing. How abortion and divorce are normal. All things which destroy someone inside. How not forgiving and judging everyone around us is normal. I don't even recognize the earth anymore. Its depressing. I just have to say that things are bad right now, really bad. People need Jesus, we have all forgotten God it seems. We are all too busy going after self destruction, at any cost. Jesus forgives though, so please go to Him for the forgiveness of sins, there is still time.

                                                              No none of this is normal at all.

Thousands of animals have gone extinct because of humans.🙄

If every human died right now, then the entire planet will be ruined. Animals can’t fix the damages we’ve caused, only we can. (plus isn’t the entire point of life to keep YOUR species alive for as long as possible?)
