The UN IPCC Special Report on Oceans and Cryosphere (or frozen areas) in a Changing Climate is a science reality check for the Prime Minister and the members of his climate denying government.
Today is National Threatened Species Day. While we celebrate our local wildlife, we are also reminded of the growing pressures our flora and fauna face under the Morrison Government.
It is frankly disgraceful that a Minister whose responsibility is to protect Australia’s biodiversity makes a rushed last-minute decision that ignores expert advice and is likely to add to a growing list of critically endangered and extinct species.
We all have a part to play to protect our oceans, but the greatest scope for change is through national leadership – which is sadly absent from a Morrison Government obsessed with removing ‘green tape’ and fighting itself to a standstill of climate change inaction.
