In fact, it is said that thousands of animals perished in the fires that ravaged parts of the country. Several Hollywood celebrities have shown concern about forest fires and have been posting about this on social media.

During the weeks, 19 people reportedly died and more than 1,400 homes were completely destroyed. Firefighters have been working 24 hours to put out the fires and it is estimated that the number of victims of destruction may increase significantly.

Hollywood celebrities, who have expressed concern include Kim Kardashian West, Leonardo Dicaprio , Russell Crowe , Minogue Kylie & Naomi watts among others.

#Regram #RG @gretathunberg: Australia is on fire. And the summer there has only just begun. 2019 was a year of record heat & record drought. Today the temperature outside Sydney was 48,9°C. 500 million (!!) animals are estimated dead because of the bushfires. Over 20 people have died & thousands of homes have burned to ground. The fires have spewed 2/3 of the nations national annual CO2 emissions, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. The smoke has covered glaciers in distant New Zealand (!) making them warm & melt faster because of the albedo effect. And yet. All of this still has not resulted in any political action. Because we still fail to make the connection between the climate crisis & increased extreme weather events & nature disasters like the # Australia Fires That has to change. And it has to change now. My thoughts are with the people of Australia & those affected by these devastating fires.

Imagine being this little boy escaping to the water—the only safe place for hundreds of kilometres, watching your house, town & country burn. Had this have happened 10 years ago this would have been me. Watching my home burn from across the sea I feel helpless but there are ways we can all help. The fact that it was hottest year & driest year in Australia n history is a major catalyst for this disaster. The warming of the earth & the current imbalance of nature due to human activity is the underlying issue here. We’ve seen far too many extreme natural disasters in such a short period of time to be able to prove otherwise. Climate change is real & we must DEMAND world leaders who prioritize the earth over economics. Scott Morrison I’m looking at you right now! Please respect nature. Especially the nature under your watch. Putting a donation link in my bio & story today.
