All climate patriots should watch the 12 minute video Who is Responsible for the Australian Bushfire Crisis?</I>
Written and produced by Kara Schlegl and narrated by Tim Minchin, it has gone viral for its sharp analysis of Australia’s turgid climate politics in each of the decades from Keating’s anti-environmental economic rationalism through to the current national fire crisis. Made by A Rational Fear, the video examines the history of Australia’s deliberate political inaction and denial in the face of scientific warnings of climate change, with successive governments prioritising the economy over commitments to reduce emissions. Against all logic, the fossil fuel industry enjoyed increasing incentives to expand, with the current Morrison government providing US$29 billion in subsidies.
