  1. Quite a shame. Wishing them all the best 🤞🏻

  2. Nero fiddles

  3. Seems fitting they get hit with apocalyptic fires while having one of the highest carbon emissions in the world and have no carbon tax or plan. Temperatures are up over 1 celciuw while rainfall has been decreasing for decades. It’s a shame it doesn’t happen more often that the majority of natural disasters from global warming hit countries that are doing the least.

      what do you mean by ‘doing the least’? I see you still use electricity!

    • elusive wild dingo wowww the classic ”but you’re contributing to this problem!” point. His point still stands, this happens cause of global warming. And there needs to be systematic change in our governments and in our corporations to even make a notable dent.

      It’s not funny living near fire zones.

  4. No point in trying to reduce carbon emissions now. All your hard work “saving the planet” gets erased in one fire.
