<p>Morrison announced he would return soon after the firefighters’ deaths were made public.</p><p>”Over the course of the past week I have been taking leave with my family. Our leave was brought forward due to the need to cancel our scheduled leave in January because of our official government visit to India and Japan at the invitation of PMs Modi and Abe,” Morrison said in a statement reported by <a href=”″ target=”_blank”>The New Daily</a>. “I deeply regret any offence caused to any of the many Australians affected by the terrible bushfires by my taking leave with family at this time.”</p><p>But it isn’t just Morrison’s absence that has some Australians upset. It’s also his lack of action on the <a href=”” target=”_self”>climate crisis</a> that makes extreme temperatures and fire seasons more likely.</p><p>”We’re not offended. We’re terrified and we’re furious,” <a href=”” target=”_blank”>Greenpeace Australia Pacific wrote in a Facebook post responding to Morrison’s return</a>. “The country is on fire, the sky is poison, it’s the hottest day we’ve ever recorded and you’re failing us. This is climate change. Do something about it.”</p><p>Australia is one of the top greenhouse gas emitters per capita because of its reliance on <a href=”” target=”_self”>coal</a>, and the government approved a new <a href=”” target=”_self”>coal mine</a> in the state of Queensland in June that will be built by Adani Enterprises, Reuters reported.</p><p>Fires have been burning in Australia for months and have consumed more than 700 homes and millions of hectares since September, <a href=”″ target=”_blank”>BBC News reported</a>.</p><p>But this week’s blazes have been made worse by record-breaking heat. The country broke its record for hottest day on Tuesday when it recorded an average temperature of 40.9 degrees Celsius. It then broke that record the next day, recording an average temperature of 41.9 degrees Celsius, <a href=”;utm_medium=Social&amp;utm_source=Facebook&amp;fbclid=IwAR2twqnTNJWxZkGvu7sQxtbKEPLO20VzY1vu6EZKpqfj7ZdtBPwbfPmKGkM#Echobox=1576775617″ target=”_blank”>The Guardian reported</a>.</p>

<p>”It is frightening and a little frustrating, but this is what climate scientists have been saying for decades,” University of New South Wales climate scientist Dr. Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick told The Guardian of the extreme heat. “I’m bordering on saying ‘I told you so’ but I don’t think anyone really wants to hear that.”</p><p>New South Wales is the state most impacted by the fires, according to BBC News, and a state of emergency has been declared there as around 100 blazes burn. Fires also ignited in Victoria and South Australia Friday when temperatures reached higher than 47 degrees Celsius in some places. In South Australia, asphalt on roads even began to melt, The New York Times reported.</p><p>Also on Friday, smoke from the New South Wales fires reached Melbourne in Victoria for the first time, according to BBC News.</p>
