Scott Morrison’s condescending call for “patience” and “calm” on bushfires and climate change

There may now be so much heat trapped in the system that we may have already triggered a domino effect that could unleash a cascade of abrupt changes that will continue to play out in the years and decades to come.

I single out our political leaders because the rest of the country is already leading the way.

The scientific community has been trying to warn the government of the need to plan to adapt to climate change for at least a decade.

As a climate scientist I find prime minster Scott Morrison’s request for people to be “patient” as infuriating as it is condescending. With respect prime minster, the science of climate change has been ignored in this country for decades. We are now seeing the very worst of our scientific predictions come to pass.
