  1. Feel the same. I an truly fearful as well because so many don't even care.
  2. Brilliant from John Oliver. He is always spot on. That bumbling stupid act of Boris Johnson is explained to perfection. Having corrupt, heartless, compulsive lying, racist leaders is always frightening. Having one that uses so called " humour" that is deliberately used as an odd diversion to the topic, makes it doubly sinister. Manipulation and diversion tactics can fool people - and he damn well fully knows that.
  3. I know ! Shocking to hear someone say that and stand by it as a reason to doubt climate change entirely. It is disheartening, terrifying and frustrating. People just don't want to even comprehend it. Look too at how many people were whining like spoilt kids when told to stop using plastic bags. They can see the animals in the oceans being killed by plastic and how much is polluting the oceans shown by researchers on the nightly news reports and still some are more concerned by some inconvenience in bringing their own bags to the Supermarket. Luckily though, most are now on board. So much willful ignorance as you said though. Why do people not listen to climate experts and instead somewhat proudly show their ignorance and reliance instead on people like Andrew Bolt and Alan Jones. I am just starting to see mentions of the Amazon fires being talked about on television shows with the urgency and horror that goes with it. Also saw where Bolsonaro is being called out completely for being the facist dangerous dictator that he is.
  4. He is just part of the problem. I have noticed so many people just don't "believe" in climate change. They think it is a ploy to tax people and they get all of that from various right wing commentators from the media. The same commentators that love Trump. It is far more prevalent than people realize. Just last month, a colleague told me that " I don't believe in Climate change" So we started talking about it and and she make some comment about " Why is Melbourne so cold in Winter is there is climate change" She thought our Winters should be warm. This from someone who has lived in Melbourne all of her life and knows full well that Melbourne has always been cold in Winter. Why so many go to Queensland for Winter to escape the cold. Have heard so many others talk like that too. In so many different circumstances. Forget ever turning on radio talk back shows too. All full of people saying that climate change is rubbish and people are "climate alarmists" The fact this Amazon fire is still not being talked much in the mainstream press is pathetic.
  5. Have noticed this for such a long time and it is beyond comprehension. So many people do not care about the environment, climate change, mass extinctions of animals and plants and the rights of indigenous populations of the world. In fact, so many are completely dismissive of scientists who have worked in this field for a long time and are experts on this topic. Instead they believe shock jocks, a media that demonises climate scientists while having interests in coal companies and dismiss and ridicule experts in their field. How can people not be interested in what is happening to our planet ?
  6. My God. This sums up everything that is evil in this world with today's so called leaders. Trump and the entire world SHOULD be helping out Brazil and the Amazon. No matter if they get on or not. This is a major World problem and it is horrific and frightening. Instead Trump is talking of trade prospects. Too many right wing heartless revolting leaders in the world with no moral compass or thought for anyone bar themselves. Trump stands out because he is so obscene and stupid but just as many like him. Putrid greedy people
  7. Has not been in Australia. Our world news on commercial channels is dreadful. Same here in Australia. I am at work and mentioned the Amazon fire to 3 of my colleagues and none had seen anything about it on the news and did not know about it. They looked it up in their breaks online and were horrified by it.
  8. This is devastating and should be the first story on news reports. The lungs of the earth is burning. Horrific and frightening.
  9. Watched this on Four Corners the other day. Boris Johnson is so manipulative, untruthful and also cunning. He knows that crazy buffoon image also distracts and gives him attention. Sickening. Brexit is an absolute mess.
  10. She rightly lost her job but the public naming and shaming and press reports about it are dreadful. Let her get help in private and deal with the consequences privately. She has been punished for it and does not need public shaming on top of that. Publicly humiliating her worldwide is a nasty unnecessary thing to do.
  11. Sammy J is a satirist on all thing political. This is his take on the NRA done as a playschool take off.
  12. Says it all. So crazy that is is beyond comprehension.
  13. Heart breaking to see these children so scared and distressed. How can people be so cruel. Just horrendous.
