If recent polls are any indication close to 60% of all Australians are increasingly alarmed with the increasing occurrences of climate Change, as in heatwaves, bushfires, floods, extended droughts and increasing cyclonic activity. The people are not stupid they take note of what is happening around them.
Those surveyed were also dismayed with the political parties effort to announce effective policies to counter this warming planet. Two decades ago I was considered a lunatic by some for suggesting that as many people as possible install solar panels systems, the acceptance of in excess of 2 million Australian homes with solar panels in 2019 seems to suggest that my judgement was sound.
Much more still needs to be done, not the least of which is vehicle emissions and renewable energy generation in the form of solar farms and pumped hydroelectricity and wind to name a few. We are feeling the devastating effects now, not in the future, but in the present. Action has become urgent as we are not acting fast enough to address the situation. Governments Local, State and Federal need to act now because the situation has reached a crisis.
