This animated short film by Darcy Prendergast takes us inside the devastating Australian bushfires.
The fires are some of the worst that the country has ever seen. The huge impact on plants, houses and animals is unprecedented. The narrator of this film takes aim at those who are responsible for the tragedy. As global temperatures have gone up as a result of climate change, the rate and severity of wild fires in Australia has risen sharply.
Political misinformation, overuse of fossil fuels and a lack of action from governments have all been big factors as to how the climate crisis got so out of hand. The video says that these fires are a wakeup call and are an example of the catastrophic effect that climate change will have on our planet. Australia is now suffering the consequences of the decades of inaction over this issue. It urges us to rethink our approach to energy consumption now before it’s too late. It’s a stark reminder of what’s at stake over the next few years.
