Australia’s Climate “Collapse” Is Our Future
The climate crisis continues to intensify down under, as large areas of Australia endure an unprecedented heatwave [ark], adding to the misery of years of severe drought [search]. Melbourne's temperatures have topped 43C (109.4F) for three days for the first time, causing trees to lose their leaves and railway tracks to buckle. This is clearly a climate change exacerbated event and portends humanity's future if we do not immediately embark upon massive emissions reductions.
For over 15 years EcoInternet's Earth Action Network has given warnings to successive Australian government's regarding their unique vulnerability to climate change, exacerbated by deforestation and reliance upon coal. Our and many other voices have been completely rebuffed. Is the current political system capable of addressing global issues of this sort? How about society, people, business or the economy? Who is going to solve climate change and what it is going to require? We are looking for answers here.
