Australians don’t need a new science report to tell them the dire ramifications of letting the climate crisis
spiral, we’re already bearing the brunt of the impact. At the time of writing this, 17 people have died
as a result of flooding in Queensland and New South Wales. During the 2019-2020 summer of rolling bushfire crises, almost 500 people died
either as a direct result of the fires or smoke inhalation, as well as an estimated one billion wildlife. Billions of dollars in damage, lives lost, and livelihoods ripped apart. This is not hyperbole, it’s our reality, and yet we have a federal government that not only drags its feet on climate change, but actively fights against taking action.
