Every summer, in the drought and hot season, there are more fires in Australia
But never one like this Dante hell.
An area about the size of Austria has turned into ashes.
The flames continue to swallow animals, nature, houses, people.
The air stinks of burnt meat.
Australia is among the top ten polluters on the planet. The consequences of a policy that has destroyed the country are now getting.
However, the deadly effects of this policy do not hit the main culprits.
As always, they meet the innocent.
Sidney University estimates that 480 million mammals, birds, reptiles … are burned alive.
According to the university, many Australian animal species have been eradicated.
But the prognoses are even darker, because the final count can affect up to 1 trillion animal losses due to starvation of the survivors.
The voters, the supporters and the Government followers are complicit.
As Prime Minister, they have chosen a climate denier and a passionate supporter of the coal industry!
There is no such thing as “innocence” in politics; wrong political decisions are paid dearly, at the latest now the Australians should feel it.
The elected conservative government has pursued a miserable policy.
It introduced drastic austerity measures, drastically reduced contributions to social security, which above all meant misery and distress for the fire brigade because the firefighters used beggars and donations to provide their equipment and work clothes themselves.
At the same time, the Morrison government has given free rein to multinationals interested in theft and exploitation of nature.
While the country was turning to ashes, Morrison was on vacation in Miami, and instead of discussing the situation with fire chief Greg Mullins, he posed with the cricket team in front of the House of Parliament because something like that sells best to voters.
The sky in New South Wales has disappeared, say the locals. A dome with sick, yellowish nicotine color hangs over their head, which at dusk takes on the color of the blood.
The worst thing is that we have learned nothing from this biblical catastrophe, and nothing is being done until today about the destruction of the earth. We distribute photos, comments, videos and suffer from collective self-pity. That’s all!
Human being is the only animal on the planet that learns nothing from its mistake.
And the biggest mistake we make is believing that only Australia has to learn from this devastating environmental disaster.
Our “ethics”, which puts ourselves above everything, runs against the wall.
My best regards to all, Venus
