Another casualty of denying climate change by golftragic

Another casualty of denying climate change

Not my photo, another one from The Age daily newspaper. This 'roo has survived but there's no food to be had in the burned-out areas (over 11 million hectares/ 27 million acres).
I could sit down and sob my heart out!

So many sad stories.... lets hope for an end to it soon...

Unbearable to see this! It just makes me cry. So much has been lost already and there is no end in sight.

Oh Marnie how heartbreaking. I spoke to my pal who lives in the Southern Highlands today and she is still okay. Sandwiched between fires to the north and the south of her. She had a 6 foot roo in her garden this morning trying to escape fires. Her son has buried so many animals and birds in his garden as he lives on the edge of bushland in the Southern Highlands too. It is devastating.

ONE BILLION! This means changing the Country forever.

Heartbreaking

Devastating. I was horrified as we we walked along our local beach this evening to see someone in the distance setting off a paper lantern. They must have sh*t for brains!

I want to sob and sob and never stop

Tears for the animals. This is much more powerful that any words. Fav.

@ludwigsdiana You certainly wouldn't be alone Diana.

@julzmaioro We're told it may continue for another two months unless there's heavy sustained rain. And the chances of that happening is about zero.

@pamknowler Thanks Pam, we're told it may go on for another two months. Heard this morning that PNG and Fiji have now sent army engineers to help restore services and infrastructure. We already have people here from a heap of other nations. The firies have knocked back any offers from people who aren't trained for frontline fire work.

@onewing It's truly a disaster Babs, and so widespread. While our ScoMo et al keep giving in the climate deniers like that idiot Craig Kelly, Barnaby etc there'll be no progress on tackling the causes in any meaningful way. Talk about a government that's out of touch with its constituents.

@domenicododaro Yes Domenico, the consequences are going to be very serious indeed. Some of the forests will never recover, and even those that do are liable to have another serious fire well before the flora and fauna can handle it. The fires are getting bigger, hotter and more frequent.

@momamo Certainly is Monique. Thank you

@merrelyn What a f-----t!! I hope somebody had words with them. That recent fire south of Perth (caused by a spark from the axle of a boat trailer hitting the road when the wheel came off) should be a serious warning to everyone.

@jgpittenger You'd have lots of company Jane. About the only good thing is the absolutely amazing response of everyone in terms of donating money to the fire appeals. Apart from we ordinary Aussies all sorts of top sports people have donated big sums and more coming from, eg each ace they serve in big tennis matches. Top rated entainers have donated very large sums and more to come from fund-raiser events. Wealthy people have donated millions, often tens of millions in each donation. This generous spirit includes Aussies and international people too. Even our stingy government has finally loosened the purse-strings too!!

@joysabin Thank you Joy. Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words.
