Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison Vows to Stop Coal Extraction?

January 4th, 2020

How is it that when things look bad – really bad – they just seem to get a whole lot worse? We thought the Amazon fires were bad, but now Australia is ablaze. Our hearts go out to all – humans, animals, plants, land and air – that are suffering. May the rain come. May the fires die down and out. May Australia’s Prime Minister stand up and say:

“In the light of the devastation caused by the recent fires in our country we have decided to halt our plans for massive coal extraction. We know jobs are important, but it’s more important for us to breathe and stay alive. I apologize to all those who might lose their jobs or their investments, but saving our people and our land is more important. Australia will now champion the environment on the world stage. We will protect Planet Earth and Humanity – whatever it costs.”  Scott Morrison – we hope.  (To make this crystal clear: this is a wish, a hope, an urging, and sadly ironic too. As far as I can tell it seems unlikely he would ever make such a comment even if his own house was on fire.)

  1. 100% spot on Mr Carr-Gomm. You should be our MP!!!! Can we please replace him with NZ Prime Minister!! Politicians forget WE employ them!!! We all need to stand up and be heard. All about money money and money….please tell Scottie to step down and lets employ YOU!! Your comments are spot on!!!!

    • I could not agree more. We are at a pivotal juncture and none of us can remain still or silent. Indeed let us be like Jacinda or Greta – we need Joan of Arcs in these times.
      Thank you for highlighting and commenting and caring.
      I am an African, reluctant immigrant to Australia who feels Australian for the first time in 6 years since I arrived because I love the land and all her creatures and it is utterly devastating.
      May the leaders step down or step up.
      Open their hearts and minds and act in good faith with all life.

  2. Can you please provide a link to this as this does not sound like our prime minister – wishful thinking

  3. Thank you for this great post! I really enjoyed reading it! I have recently published an article on my blog regarding my thoughts on Scott Morrison and his leadership during Australia’s bushfire crisis. If you have time, it would be great if you could check out my post as I would be really interested to hear your thoughts! Thanks 🙂
