t’s the beginning of the new year 2020 but it feels like we’ve reached a new level of climate crisis. Australia is facing an unprecedented national crisis, the bush fires are tearing through cities and rural areas, leaving millions of people and animals homeless and injured. Reports state that since September, at least 20 people have died and over 1,500 homes have been destroyed.
