Australian Bush Fire Victims Need Your Help
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
This year, the impact of climate change has caused havoc on Australia, overwhelmed by the drought and heat. Good parts of eastern Australia are now in catastrophic fire danger, with over 4 million hectares (9.88 million acres) destroyed. U.S. and Canada have been sending firefighters to Australia.
Recalling our earlier post Impact of Climate Change on Australia during mid-December, now NSW state of Australia will be in a state of emergency for the next week. As the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian declared a fresh state of emergency for the next seven days, firies are preparing for conditions to take a turn for the worst, in the video “NSW state of emergency declared for next 7 days, Nine News Australia“, below:
