Donald Trump and Scott Morrison. Two peas in a pod.

We have just ten years to turn the climate crisis around - and the Liberals are sending us backwards.

Massive bushfires one year, deadly severe weather the next. This is the reality of climate collapse. Anyone pushing for more coal, oil and gas is putting lives at risk. There's no other way to put it.

2/ While he may think he can stick his head in the sand and buy another decade for the fossil fuel lobby to keep pumping out pollution and profits, the rest of the world is moving on and has run out of patience with this Government's love affair with coal and gas.

4/ The consequences of Morrison's climate delay are coming to a head. Simply reaffirming our existing climate-wrecking targets will not be enough.

Think Donald Trump not paying any tax is bad? Wait until you hear about Australia's billionaires and the mining companies they own. Billionaires don't play fair - but Morrison wants to reward them with tax cuts.

Instead of the $270b military spend, we could: ✔give free uni and TAFE to all who wanted it ✔offer every parent free childcare ✔bring dental into Medicare (six times over) ✔build the 500,000 public homes needed to end homelessness (twenty times over) What would you rather?

BREAKING: At estimates, the @BOM_au  confirmed its forecasts that the world is on track for 3.4°C of warming under current climate pledges & that means up to 4.4°C for Australia. Our last horror summer of bushfires was at ~1° of warming, & we're going to fail our current targets.

The chaos and bloodshed in Washington should be a wake-up call for all in Australian politics who have adopted Trump-like politics. You can't fan the flames of fires of far-right nationalism, racism, & conspiracy, then claim innocence when blood is shed. It has consequences.

If a single grain of rice is worth about $58,000 (the median salary), how much rice do you think Gina Rinehart and Clive Palmer will have after this government’s new tax cuts? I decided to find out.

I met a 17 yo young woman today who said she can’t think about her future more than 1yr ahead, because when she thinks about what the climate emergency will do to her in 5 or 10yrs, it all gets too much. It’s time to end the anxiety. It’s time to fight for a Green New Deal.
