hey, i'm worried.

Postby Olivur » Thu Jan 09, 2020 11:18 am

      as someone who has a close friend in australia i really hope my followers who may be located there are doing okay. i know it's stressful but just wanted to let ya'll know there's open arms if anybody needs it.

      if you're not in australia, i suggest you follow up with the situation there because they're in need of help more than ever. anyway thanks for coming to my ted talk :ok_hand:

      update: if anybody is interested, you can keep up with things that need to be donated. some prime examples are the veggie drops, so if you can even provide enough to help support feeding the animals left in the wild you're already doing wonders. even knitted items like mittens, koala/joey pouches and bird nests are needed to keep our little friends healthy!

      if you can't donate, i understand, as not everybody is in a good situation. even spreading awareness and supporting those who went out as volunteer animal rescue aids or fire rescue teams is enough. <3

      second update : please see awoo's post here! it contains lots of valuable information that i think should be brought to attention.

It’s very heartbreaking to see this in a country that has so many animals you can’t find anywhere else. To think we might lose some of those animals forever ): Here’s to hoping the people living there are all okay

I feel your pain! I have family there. luckily they're far enough away, but it's still scary and tragic to see the numbers, photos, and distance that the flames have managed to travel. what's most upsetting is their government isn't helping, and hundreds have been arrested for intentionally setting fires. I just don't get it.
Happy New Year!

hundreds of people have not been arrested for arson. please please stop spreading misinformation, i have been seeing this a lot lately and it's seems to be having an impact on the climate change stances. pretty much everyone was commenting about the Scott Morrison protest, were denying climate change regardless of evidence and blaming arsonists. Even one of the LNP, Craig Kelly tried to discredit a UK weather presenter regarding climate change saying that the Australian bushfires had no connection to global warming. article here
Garnaut Report in 2008 wrote:“Fire seasons will start earlier, end later and be more intense. This effect increases over time but should be directly observable by 2020.” link



Discrediting the 100s arrested
Lightning is the main cause
contradicting the #arsonemergency
spreading of misinformation through social media


However that being said, some fires in QLD were lit by teenagers, notably the sunshine coast and i believe that one of the fires on the hinterlands were started by a improperly thrown out cigarette. The fires have been contained ages ago and didn't reach the extent of the NSW fires. Arsonists are still a problem but the major cause is lighting and dry weather.

Also congrats on the feature, it's really an impressive and emotional piece - i rarely comment on these but i strongly care about the fires. I also live in a high risk zone for bushfires, a couple of months ago a blaze started a street over and it took 12-15 firetrucks to contain it. A billion animals have been lost in the NSW fires, people have lost their homes, their lives, and the government doesn't care. I hope everyone in affected areas, and in general, stay safe. Even smoke is a hazard, Melbourne was hit with smoke from the Victorian Bushfires. I swear at this point every capital city has been hit, canberra, sydney, brisbane, melbourne. Not sure about perth or adelaide, even NZ got smoke from Australian fires. Please stay safe.

as someone who lives in australia and is barely a few km's away from surrounding threatening fires, we really do appreciate every single person spreading awareness.

awoo explained a lot of things really nicely in the above post and i recommend reading it ^^

Oh my god the drawing 😭
Augh I know its horrible for Australia to have one of the biggest bush fires yet >:( but lets cross our fingers and hope everything will get better. And for me the most infuriating thing is that people dont know its happening or just couldn't care less. like its on the news people hellooooo yet they still are like wha when you bring up the topic. And its horrible and heart breaking to see all the animals suffering and dying I can't 😭😭😭
