The Australian bushfires have reportedly claimed 19 lives and destroyed more than 2000 homes. A huge number of people is missing and many animals are also affected by the fire. Many Bollywood celebrities and also regional cinema actors and actresses have expressed concern on Twitter over the bushfire in Australia.
Pollywood actors also took to their social handle and expressed concern. Neeru Bajwa took to her Instagram handle and wrote, “Australia is on fire. And the summer there has only just begun. 2019 was a year of record heat and record drought. Today the temperature outside Sydney was 48,9°C. 500 million (!!) animals are estimated dead because of the bushfires. Over 20 people have died and thousands of homes have burned to ground. The fires have spewed 2/3 of the nations national annual CO2 emissions, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. The smoke has covered glaciers in distant New Zealand (!) making them warm and melt faster because of the albedo effect. And yet. All of this still has not resulted in any political action. Because we still fail to make the connection between the climate crisis and increased extreme weather events and natural disasters like the #AustraliaFires That has to change. And it has to change now. My thoughts are with the people of Australia and those affected by these devastating fires.”
Rescue operations have started but it is reported that more than 135 bushfires are still burning across the country.
