""After Victoria sweltered through one of its hottest days on record, cockatoos were “falling dead from the trees”
“The thermometer under the back veranda got to 48.9C today, not an official reading obviously, but it was enough to kill these sulphur-crested cockatoos,” Bill Wallace wrote on Twitter on Friday"
“I’ve never seen that before,” one shocked commenter said."
"Other social media users shared photos of animals stressed in the heat over the weekend, including another bird that had fallen dead from its tree in inner-west Sydney on Saturday, as temperatures reached 36 degrees in the city."
Meanwhile Aussie PM Scott Morrison has been holidaying in Hawaii, he has drawn scorn for holidaying while Australia faced an epidemic of bushfires and record breaking temperatures (in particular the national average), he has also gone on the defensive after being criticized by Greta Thunberg for failing to make the connection between climate change and more extreme weather events:
"Australia and the Australian Government will set our policies based on Australia's national interests, on what Australia needs to do," Mr Morrison told reporters
"Greta, 16, also retweeted pictures overnight of cockatoos that had dropped dead from trees in western Victoria because of the extreme heat."
It's very sad that gentle, intelligent and sensitive parrots have been affected by the severe heat, at least I know that one is safe with me.
It's very sobering to realise that the temperatures are almost certainly going to keep increasing every decade. If it's bad now, I hate to think what it's going to be like in 10 years, 20 years...etc"
