1/ THREAD ON OUR BUSHFIRES VIDEOS. It was clear in December that the bushfires in Australia weren’t only a profound human & environmental crisis – they also highlighted the tensions between politics, business, the media and science within the broader issue of climate change.
2/ On @BBCOS, we decided to cover the story in great detail and, to our surprise, in the last month our videos have been watched millions of times and we've been deluged with messageS about them. I thought it'd be useful to put them all in one place. Here you go.
3/ We knew something unusual was up when a clip of us was posted on YouTube and started to be heavily shared. In it we explored PM Scott Morrison and the coal industry. Plus people asking ‘Where the bloody hell are you?’ while he was on holiday.

See thread exposing how these “bushfires” are really just crimes against humanity, nature, and the ecosystem. Is the establishment using them to justify more taxes, cause massive disturbance in our economy, farming, and environment? Apparently a “trillion $ opportunity” for some!

En 2011, l'Australie créé une Climate Commission, l'équivalent de notre @hc_climat. Elle sera dissolue seulement 2 ans plus tard.
Que dit-elle dans son premier rapport ?

@hc_climat "Des températures plus élevées augmentent la probabilité d'incendies intenses et de grande ampleur [...] augmentation de 20% du risque [...] impact sur la santé, les biens et les infrastructures."

Bien vu ?

Ok, I am really glad $2billion has been allocated to bushfire recovery.

Good. Yes. Good.

And now I can use this sum of money to help show you what the funding looks like behind the scenes.

I encourage you to read it for yourself.

Kebakaran belukar Australia 2019.

Kebakaran ini bermula sejak dari September 2019, dan sehingga ke hari ini, ia masih lagi sedang memusnahkan Australia.

A thread..
