It’s hard to know exactly when Australia’s pandemic response crossed the line from tragedy into farce, writes @pwafork
This rarely-seen glass octopus was caught on camera. The clear sea creature was filmed by an underwater robot during an expedition off of the Phoenix Islands, more than 3,200 miles northeast of Sydney, Australia.
Here’s how this scene was viewed live in Australia. One of America’s closest and most dependable allies. Rendered speechless. Just watch.
I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires. I am pledging a donation of $500,000 directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines. My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz ❤️
The catastrophic fires in Australia are the latest example of the very real and very urgent consequences of climate change. It’s on us to stay focused and protect the one planet we’ve got for the next generation:
I say to those who are delaying action on climate change: Look at the blood-red sky and unbreathable air in Australia because of raging forest fires. Our futures are all connected. That is why we must bring the world together and enact a Green New Deal.
