Commenting on the 2017 Las Vegas shooting that killed 60 people and injured more than 400, the US National Rifle Association said ‘This sort of response isn’t helpful. Families are mourning. Offer a prayer and temper your desire of politics…’ It sounds just like the response of the Prime Minister and Coalition Ministers to the recent bush fires. But former senior fire chiefs in their Emergency Leaders for Climate Action decided not to put up any longer with political evasion on the link between the’ urgent threat’ of climate change and the escalating bush fire risk. Hear what they had to say last week.
Fire chiefs want more than thoughts and prayers.
