Australia is preparing to evacuate 250,000 people, see space fire



Australian authorities have called on almost a quarter of a million people to leave their homes.

The military is also ready to fight fires if needed, Reuters reports.



Today, a strong wind has combined two huge forest fires into one mega fire. For days, it was feared that the fire would cross the border between the states of New South Wales and Victoria in the Snowy Mountains.

In some parts of these countries, temperatures have now exceeded 40 degrees Celsius.

State of emergency, 27 dead

A state of emergency has been declared since midnight, and the worst is yet to come, numerous international agencies have reported. Meteorologists announce even higher temperatures, strong winds and lightning without rain.

Space photos have been released showing all the power of devastating fires.

So far, 27 people have been killed and thousands have become homeless after fires devastated more than 10.3 million hectares of land, leaving burnt land in South Korea.

Protesters demand PM's resignation: “Save us from hell”

Thousands of citizens took to the streets today to protest the government's inaction on climate change. Prime Minister Scott Morrison's conservative government is facing increasing pressure to do more on climate change.

Sydney's main streets were blocked as protesters shouted “ScoMo has to go”, demanding Morrison's resignation, while others carried banners saying “There is no climate B” and “Save us from hell “.

Similar protests took place in the Australian capital Canberra and Melbourne, which are among the cities with the most polluted air in the world this month. In Melbourne, with heavy rain and sharp falling temperatures, protesters wore banners and shouted “Phase Out Fossil Fools”, “Release ScoMo” and “Make fossil fuels history”.

The premiers don't care about criticism

Australia cut its commitments to the Paris Climate Agreement last year.

Prime Minister Morrison has repeatedly dismissed criticism that his government is not doing enough on this issue, and said for 2GB radio, it was disappointing for people to link the fires and the government's reduction of targets to combat climate change.

“We don't want targets that destroy businesses and the economy that can't change the fact that there are fires and things like that in Australia,” Morrison said. His Liberal Party defeated Labor in the 2019 elections with a platform to preserve Australia's large coal industry.
