  • Ex-Australian Prime Minister Turnbull Calls US President Trump 'Leading Climate Denier'

Scott Morrison on Wednesday said that hazard reduction would be equally as "important as emissions reduction and I think many would argue even more so because it has an even more direct, practical impact on the safety of a person going into a bushfire season", reported Xinhua news agency.

Mr Morrison sparked outrage when he travelled to Hawaii in the middle of the bushfire crisis.

Morrison's centre-right government has been criticised for refusing to discuss whether the climate has contributed to a longer dry season that's fuelling the ferocious blazes. I want to be very open with you, I've worked very closely with him, I've known him for at least 20 years and I can't explain his behavior, "he said".

He "could not explain" why Morrison had refused to meet with former fire chiefs - who at the start of past year tried to warn him of the risks posed by the next fire season - and then made a decision to leave on vacation in Hawaii in the midst of the crisis in December.

'Dad, we're all thinking of you at this very hard time, and I wish I could be there with you'. So instead of doing what a guide should do and preparing people for it, he downplayed it and then of course made a decision to go on vacation to Hawaii at the height of the crisis. "It does not correspond to the way a Prime Minister would act and should act".

Last year, the New Daily announced that the prime minister was on a secret trip to Hawaii while fires devastated Australian communities.

He blamed "green madness, quot; and "weather alarmists", a term used by President Trump this week in Davos, Switzerland, for exaggerating the role of climate change and preventing defensive burns, despite firefighters saying that The problem is resources and time., not politics".

Mnuchin defended their use, saying China and other countries wouldn't have come to the negotiating table without their imposition. Most trade experts had expected the talks to run beyond that date, given the complexity of the issues to be addressed.

"Which is just nonsense from a scientific point of view. So that's misleading people", he said.

Ben Fordham describes meeting John Morrison on a couple of occasions, including when his son was elected Prime Minister previous year.

Turnbull and another prime minister, Tony Abbott, previously also sided with moderate challengers to ensure that Kelly returned to Parliament, a sign of his usefulness to leaders in the concentration of his conservative base. How many more million hectares of forest has to be burnt? He asked. "How many more lives and more homes must be lost before climate change deniers admit they are wrong?"

Julia Gillard, whose father John died in 2012 during her term as prime minister, expressed her condolences to Mr Morrison.

"Trump doesn't care. He says global warming is garbage, "said Turnbull".

"He's leading the most influential nation in the world and is actively working against global action to reduce emissions". The lack of American leadership is extremely harmful.

"I do not know why Scott Morrison has acted the way he has".
