Australia is on fire – donate to help Australia
Out-of-control bushfires continue to spread, particularly across New South Wales. Since July 2019 a staggering 10 million hectares have been affected. That’s over ten times the size of the area affected by the 2019 Amazon fires.
Over 2,000 homes have been affected, and an estimated 1.25 billion animals have been killed.
As climate breakdown intensifies, scientists predict that wildfires will become more frequent and extreme. We need to change our planet’s fate before it’s too late.
Asia is also under threat
Global warming and extreme weather linked to climate breakdown are also contributing to disasters across parts of South East Asia.
Jakarta floods, Indonesia
The worst monsoon rains in more than a decade hit the capital, Jakarta, over late December and early January 2020. Home to 30 million people, the city suffered fatal flooding and landslides which affected hundreds of neighbourhoods.
Typhoon Phanfone, Philippines
On Christmas Day 2019 winds as strong as 125 miles per hour battered the central region islands of the Philippines. Typhoon Phanfone has led to the evacuation of over 58,000 people and stranded thousands more.
Tell the UK government to take urgent climate action
The largest bushfires in Australia’s history. The worst flooding for a decade in Indonesia. Disaster stories such as these can be linked to a climate breakdown.
Time is running out to stop irreversible climate breakdown.
