Australia's bushfire crisis - is this what a climate crisis looks like?
Christine Milne, Global Greens Ambassador, former Leader of the Australian Greens
The unprecedented and catastrophic bushfires in Australia have killed more than 25 people, burned hundreds of thousands of hectares of land, caused massive devastation to wildlife, ecosystems and the environment, and destroyed hundreds of homes. Even as the world tries to grapple with the enormity of the crisis, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been facing mounting criticism over his government's climate policies and their handling of the crisis. A new misinformation campaign has also been spreading around the claim that the bushfire crisis is the fault of arsonists, seemingly an attempt to dispel the role of climate change in the crisis. We speak to Christine Milne, a former Senator for Tasmania and leader of the Australian Greens, to get the 411 on the crisis.
