It’s election day down under today, and more than 17 million people will cast their vote to shape the future of Australia. But will they elect to change the current government? It looks like this race will go down to the wire, as much as I personally find it a shocking evidence of how people are afraid of change, have given up hope and prefer to go with the devil they know.
Humans are capable of greater things. If we stick together we can push back all sorts of aggression around the world, we can keep global peace, we can fight climate change, we can end racism and gender inequality. We are all equal, we are all the same, we must give peace a chance.
When President-elect Joe Biden made his winning speech last November, he highlighted some of the major problems he intends to focus on once he gets into office. The US is due to lead the world once again in taking action on coronavirus, equality, economy and climate change. However, the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has refused to bow to pressure from the US.
A few months ago we were all deeply involved in the Climate Change debate, especially down here in Australia where the bushfires were raging across the nation. Then, all of a sudden, came along the Coronavirus and literally stopped the world from spinning. The Climate Change debate is not on anyone’s agenda anymore.
Bushfires all around Australia, becoming more and more extreme. Fricky thunderstorms tearing through cities in minutes, leaving hundreds of broken trees and electricity poles. And yet, the Australian government keeps ignoring the facts. Climate Change.
The world is changing, the weather is becoming more and more extreme, temperatures keep rising, our blue planet is warming up, the icebergs are melting, these are all scientific facts. Yet, as we are heading towards a disaster, there are still many people who ignore the facts and do absolutely nothing to stop it. Our World Leaders.
