Australia's Leaders Say "No Link Between Global Warming And Bushfires"

Australia’s government is sticking firmly to a position that may cause major blowback.

The government is claiming there is no direct link between climate change and the country’s devastating bushfires.

Reuters reports this is despite public anger, anguish of victims, and warnings from scientists.

PM Morrison says no to cutting carbon emissions, even after a 3 year drought and unprecedented bushfires.

Australia contributes 1.3% of the world’s carbon emissions and is the second-largest emitter per capita.

Cutting emissions would limit global warming and hopefully stop future bushfires.
