Australia is undergoing an unprecedented Heat Wave and it is causing mass fish kills along the Western Australian Coastline. Air Temperatures above 50C are occurring for over 5 days, which has never happened in this region since they started monitoring air temperature in 1993 via satellites. 

Higher temperatures do occur during the summer, but not until mid-summer in February. Higher temperatures in December worry researchers as they have never observed these temperatures this early.

Higher temperatures and mass fish kills make you wonder why more governments are not taking more Climate Change action. 

I hope that protests such as the Climate Strikes will inspire more people who want action to reduce Green House Gases will run for office in the near future.

Would you run for office so you could have an influence on Climate Action Policy in your country? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
