Prime minister ‘idiot’, Australian bushfire survivors say


This 2 January 2020 video says about itself:

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was branded an “idiot” and was told to “p*** off” as he was heckled by furious residents of a town ravaged by the devastating bushfires.

Mr Morrison, who was heavily criticised for taking a family holiday to Hawaii as the crisis erupted last month, was forced to cut short his trip to Cobargo, on the New South Wales South Coast, 280 miles south of Sydney.

At Kafue National Park, one cheetah has adapted his hunting strategy to find more prey: he hunts in the forest, instead of the open plains. This flexibility is good news for the future of Africa’s most endangered big cat.

A Northern Tamandua, a medium-sized anteater, made a nighttime visit to the feeding platform.

Australia: 17 missing after wildfires

At least 17 people were missing in the Australian state of Victoria as mass evacuations began in the bushfire-ravaged region.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews confirmed the number of unaccounted people in the state during a news conference on Thursday.

“I don’t propose to go through the 17 different locations. I don’t think that serves any purpose. They are from East Gippsland from a number of smaller communities across East Gippsland. That number may grow or indeed people may report to authorities or we can get to them either via mobile phone coverage or getting people into those communities. It may be that some of those people are safe, but we do hold very significant fears for the welfare of anybody who is missing at this time,” said Daniel Andrews, Victorian Premier.

He added that the missing people were “from a number of smaller communities across East Gippsland.”

Andrews’ announcement was made after thousands of tourists in a 250-kilometre (155 miles) stretch from Victoria’s East Gippsland to the New South Wales South coast were ordered to leave the region within a 24-hour period.

The order was given amid a brief reprieve from hot weather conditions in the area, aiding firefighting and allowing people to replenish dwindling supplies.

Military ships and aircraft also started evacuating trapped residents who had fled to the shoreline as bushfires approached their towns in recent days.

Fire conditions were expected to deteriorate on Saturday as high temperatures and strong winds return.

At least 18 people have died, more than 1,300 homes have been destroyed and about five million hectares (12.35 million acres) of land has burned nationwide from the wildfires since September.

A new study shows that air pollutants from the smoke of fires from as far as Canada and the southeastern US traveled hundreds of miles and several days to reach Connecticut and New York City, where it caused significant increases in pollution concentrations: here.
