“Why we need to politicise the bushfires”
Whoever decided to launch The Guardian in Australia: thank you.
Love the last two paragraphs of this piece:
Nobody is saying we should stop talking about the fires and talk about global warming instead. With the Greens working harder than anyone else to get more resources for emergency services, certainly nobody is saying we should stop battling the bushfires and tackle global warming instead.
Only when we’re smart enough to do both at the same time will we truly be fighting fires.
Click through for all of the reasoning.
What do they MEAN?
Here’s an answer mentioned by the guest speaker at my church this morning:
Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.
(Genesis 9:14-16, God talking)
In other words, every rainbow is God reminding himself he’s promised to never flood the entire planet again.
I’m so glad climate change won’t be drowning ALL of us.
Climate change is starting to hurt.
Also, I’m loving The Conversation.
