(M+D Archive) Australia Is On Fire

If you're in Sydney, Australia, you probably shouldn't breathe. New South Wales is experiencing the worst fire season in history, and Sydney is blanketed in smoke and rained on by ash. This is unprecedented, and appalling. And Lupo has conjunctivitis too.

Today we talk about Australia, it's fire season and how bad it is, and how unique. Some fires are good for the ecology, and help nurture new growth and regeneration. This isn't that. this is scorched earth in the real sense, with everything dead and things burning that have never burned before. Climate Change denial feeds into this, as it prevents political leaders from planning and preparing for the consequences of shifts in climate and weather, lest they have to acknowledge there might be a problem. And maaaaaybe I forgot Scott Morrison's name. Maybe.
