As of now, 28 people are dead and koalas have been declared functionally extinct. Yet, we come to no solid conclusion as to how we will tackle this problem.
The population keeps growing and at this rate, we will leave the next generation with so little that they may not even live a full life. The young generations that are right in front of us may be deprived of a liveable planet.
It is quite baffling to still hear governments say that economic growth cannot be put aside to reduce carbon footprint.
This is not just a natural phenomenon or even a disaster but a tragedy of epic proportions. This is not the time to offer condolences, prayers or thoughts for its too late for that.
What we can offer is support to groups that are putting pressure on governments to force multinational companies to clean up their act or maybe even form one.
Even those who are unable to participate in activism can help the planet by changing their lifestyle by cutting down on meat and dairy or even donating money to environmental organizations can truly help.
However, the top priority is to hold those most responsible for global warming accountable and force them to pay what is owed to save the planet.
While individual changes also count, what is truly needed to save Earth is to stop those at the top.
