What Greens MPs did for the bushfires in the past week

The Greens have been the most vocal in their criticism of Scott Morrison for his trip to Hawaii. The PM returned today and apologised for his absence. The Labor Party has been silent about Morrison, to their credit; however, the Greens have been relentless in attacking the Prime Minister over the past week. So, in the interests of ‘put up or shut up’, the Thought Hub has reviewed the actions of the three most prominent Greens MPs over the past week, according to what they have shared. Let’s see how they went:

Sarah Hanson-Young 

SHY 3

Lectured Morrison from her air conditioned office, using the tragic death of volunteer firefighters to maximum advantage to make a political point.

SHY 1

Protested in the city surrounded by people who agree with her.

SHY 2

Shared posts from Greenpeace.

Adam Bandt 

Adam Bandt

Shared videos about Christmas lights.

Adam Bandt 2

Threw mud at Scott Morrison, using the tragedy for maximum political advantage.

Adam Bandt 3

Labelled the weather as ‘apocalyptic’ to scare the shit out of everybody.

Richard DiNatale 

Richard 1

Lectured Australians on how to do Christmas.

RICHARD 2

Had a go at Scott Morrison, lecturing him about the need to be ‘above politics’ while he exploits the tragedy for maximum political gain.

RICHARD 3

Live streamed himself speaking at a protest surrounded by people who agree with him. DiNatale did at least visit Binna Burra, Lamington National Park on December 14 to inspect damage done by the fires – so some credit is due there.

So, after reviewing the most high profile Greens MPs and their activities over the past few days, the Thought Hub can conclude that they have done very little to help the crisis other than lecture, hound and try to score cheap political points.

    This is so typical of the greens, they are a constant thorn in the side of Australia, but the sad thing is, people still vote for them and that is a real concern to me

  2. The Greens are the most dangerous political party in Australia….I hope that go the same way as The Australian Democrats!

  3. How DARE you expect Dr Di Natale MB BS to go and give free medical help to any injured person in a fire zone? Or Bandt and hanson-Young fight fires, make sandwiches, deliver fresh water, fix trucks, clean, wash, support…

  4. Greens are stirrers and trouble makers, never accountable for their own actions and failings. They are agains everything that is still good and credible in this country. They should be in the front lines fighting fires, the fires they helped create by refusing clearances and back burning in our bushy surroundings.

  5. The bulk of those who vote for Greens are kids who have been brainwashed for 13 years at school (Prep – yr 12) and many uni students. Then Labor gives them preference deals. The greens and their enablers Labor have caused so much trouble in the bush through their negligent forest management policies. Did we see any members of the Green party or their supporters helping with the clean up after any of the fires? I haven’t spoken to one person who isn’t very upset with them.

  6. And the ALP want to lower the voting age to 16. Wonder why???

  7. GREAT THAT ALL RESOURCES ARE USED TO TRY REDUCE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE THE DAMAGE THAT CLIMATE CHANGE HAS INFLICTED . BUT LET THIS BE A COSTLY LESSON .USE THE ENERGY USED IN ATTACKING PEOPLE, PM AND OTHERS WHO MAY HAVE THE WRONG POLICIES ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND RE DEBATE THE POLICIES RE CLIMATE CHANGE WHICH UNDOUBTEDLY IS ONE BIG FACTOR IN THE DISASTER.IT WILL GET WORSE IN YEARS AHEAD. THE END IF WE DONT IMPLEMENT THE PARIS AGREEMENT AND UN ASSESSMENTS. REDUCE AND STOP COAL IS ONE SMALL MEASURE. THE GREENS HAVE SUGGESTIONS , MORRISON NEEDS TO STOP NEW COAL MINES TO BEGIN WITH. WE HAVE PLENTY OF SUN TO REPLACE COAL ENERGY . HE HAS TO LEAD ON THIS.

    • Please inform yourself of our history with fires, flood and drought climate change has nothing to do with it go back to 1800s they were same and some worse than today

      • No, they weren’t.

      • Peter, you are wong about this. You cannot rely on the weather for z reliable source of energy. The only reliable clean green energy is nuclesr and hydro

      • There is no need to yell in your post. Upper case letters, if you don’t know, means you ate yelling. If that was your intention then you are a typical greens supporter who will not listen to any other point of view and therefore never learn anything except what those corrupt watermelons of the green party tell you.

      You obviously do NOT live in Melbourne . How many sunny days per year? What happens on the other300 cloudy days.

      Climate change is a natural phenomenon, it has been going on for hundreds of thousands of years. It that big red thing in the sky above us, and this small blob of dirt we are clinging to and the way it travels around that large red thing in the sky. No matter how much we try to change the climate it is a waste of time and energy. What we need to be spending money on is doing things that will help make climate change more bearable. We will get hotter (in Australia) for the next 50 to 100 years then it will start to cool down again. Climate alarmists need to study the history of the planet going back hundreds of thousands of years. Then they might stop trying to change our climate. .

  8. Totally wrong WONG.More scientists are now coming out to reveal that climate change is not related to coal power or coral bleaching & the tide is turning. Likewise the current bush fire emergency is more to do with Green interference in forrest clearing & burnoffs creating dangerous conditions & exasperated by arsonists who should be charged with murder regardless of age when apprehended.

    • I’m not sure how much influence you think the Greens have when they hold only 1 seat in the house reps and have never been in government but they definitely do not have influence over Forrest clearing and burnoffs and just because Barnaby Joyce said so doesn’t mean they do. The reality of the situation is that, due to rising average temperature extremes and fires seasons advancing sooner into the year, it has become more dangerous to perform fuel reduction burns. Fires can get out of control easier, the smoke presence can cause harm and fire services are now understaffed due to lack of resources budgeted by the the current government. That’s what creates dangerous conditions, not the greens. I completely agree that arsonists should be trialed as murders, but they’re not the only cause, the climate is another equally as important reason.

      As for the claim that there are climate scientists that are coming out against the notion that coal power has little impact on climate change, that’s a big claim to make. It is well known and accepted throughout the scientific community and beyond that coal is the majority supply of energy related CO2 emissions and is a large contributor to average global temperature rises. If you believe you have evidence against that then please provide it, however the responsibility is on you to give that evidence given the large amount of evidence currently available in support of conventional knowledge on the emissions of coal.

      • If Greens have no influence, why bother voting for them?
        Of course they influence Labor policy. That’s why they give preferences.

      • The greens may only hold one seat in federal parliament BUT the control a very large amount of local councils, who by the way have a very large say in what happens on the ground around us. They prevent clearing of undergrowth build up, clearing around property with very tight regulations and fines for anyone breaching THEIR rules. Councils are in control of permits etc for clearing fire hazards. SO they do have a great deal of control over how the fuel loads have increased to the levels that they are now.
        The only factor that WE can control in relation to fires is FUEL..heat and oxygen are the other two factors that we cannot control.
        Permit reduced fuel loads and you reduce the heat produced and intensity of a fire, making it more able to be controlled in an outbreak.

    Blinded by their ignorant ideology these Greens are being pandered to by all the major parties to gain their occasional support. They are dangerous, incompetent and simply prove what the definition of utter stupidity really is. If it was not so serious one could almost feel sorry for this pathetic section of society.

  10. And what have the party in leadership for the last two terms done? Sold out water to the highest bidder, that is foreign owned mining and cotton companies while our farmers suicide at horrific rates. They are more concerned with their paedophiles churches and waiting for the Rapture to come. Not to mention the dickheads third overseas holiday in a year which cost taxpayers $20000 each time ( his security staff).

  11. The Greens need to be closed down as they are destroying Australia with their policy’s. Get rid of preference voting and first past the post.

    This is a crock of shit. How about looking at all the facts and writing an article that is vindictive of the truth. I also hope you’re writing this article from the harsh environment of a fire truck in NSW (near the Blue Mountains to be specific) on a note pad in between putting out the fires that are killing and destroying thousands of people’s homes, animals and property. Instead of everybody criticising each other how about we do something about the Damn Big problem we have in Australia! You blaming the greens or the LNP isn’t going to put out the fires or deal with our climate issue.
