Former boss of the New South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, Greg Mullins (pictured), now a councillor with Australia's Climate Council joined the council's CEO, Amanda McKenzie, on a recent webinar to discuss the causes, impact and ongoing difficulties of the recent bushfires that troubled much of Australia.
Mr Mullins called for leadership from our politicians and urged that all of us use whatever facilities or skills we have to impress upon our politicians, and wider community the need to plan for and prepare for conditions with which we are unfamiliar.
Personal efforts have been the creation of a non-activist community group that meets monthly in Shepparton's Maude St Mall, that led to another activist group, "Slap Tomorrow", and the writing of a column in The Shepparton News that is either obliquely or directly about the climate crisis.
