Images from space courtesy of @NASA belie any claims that the #AustralianBushfiresDisaster couldn't be foreseen or were caused by something other than #ClimateChange . In this thread I'll take you through it, based on earthobservatory.nasa.gov/images/event/1…

It would take something pretty special to bring me back to social media during the Christmas break. But #Mallacoota is more than pretty special. My first opinion piece for @theage: theage.com.au/national/victo…

@GretaThunberg @AlexandriaV2005 @ClimateKristin @SameeraSavarala @EricHolthaus @MikeHudema @MichaelEMann @ap4ca @350Australia @GeraldKutney @KHayhoe #Mallacoota is a small town of about 4000 people in the state of #Victoria. There's one road in/out of town but no-one could use it to evacuate. Everyone was ordered to the town wharf to wait out the #bushfire, sitting ready in life jackets.
