Lizzo also posted on her Instagram Stories saying “I don’t want to politicise anything. This isn’t a political issue at this point, this is a human issue. The CO2 emissions that are being created by this fire are staggering and it affects the world.”
Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology just issued a statement confirming that 2019 was our hottest ever on record and that they expect it to continue getting worse.
