Hello @ScottMorrisonMP. We wanted to have a holiday this week too. It was paid for long ago before we were financially broken by this #drought, devastated at the death of so many of our beautiful animal companions, heartbroken at the sale of others (for a pittance), exhausted by
The unrelenting #dry and watching the river drop by inches a day. Once that water is gone (the river has stopped flowing for the first time in recorded history) then we, the animals, the #platypus, bass, eels & turtles will all die. We can't afford to truck in water where we are
And then there were the fires. 3 days of frantic preparation before we fought them from the north. We lost all our beautiful ancient #rainforest and native bush. We were on 'watch and act' for over a month as the fire raged to the west, helicopters over us daily. We live in thick

By 2029, droughts won't last for weeks or months anymore.

They'll last for years.
Droughts, particularly in the Global South, will last anywhere from 6 months to 5 whole years.

Staggering:

We must put a stop to imperial attitudes of Global North governments.
2°C - 3°C is possible by the end of the 2020s.

That's terrifying.

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

My town #Coonabarabran #Coona sits in NW of #NSW . Just North is the #Pilliga forest, to south & west #WarrumbungleNatPark & #SidingSpringObservatory. Rich farmlands surround it. But it is under threat from #climatebreakdown #schoolstrike4climate
#Coona district is in severe #drought & #waterstress our council Dam is so low that new bores had to be sunk for town’s supply. Farming families are worn down with feeding stock & stress. Paddocks are baked dry #climatebreakdown is reality #SchoolStrike4Climate
In our gardens, forests and farms trees are dying as we face our second #autumn in drought. We are reliant on bore water from the #GreatArtesianBasin to survive #climatebreakdown is a daily reality. #SchoolStrike4climate

Short lap. Check out the horn on that caterpillar, though!
I was gonna start a 🦆 party hashtag, but there was some weird stuff associated with that. Seriously, always check before you start a hashtag.
There was some serious jostling and splashing going on. My guess is it’s the feisty young adults, testing their feathers.
