2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders confused millions of users on social media Thursday afternoon; saying the United States must pass his ‘Green New Deal’ to help prevent Australian wildfires from occurring in the future.
“I say to those who are delaying action on climate change: Look at the blood-red sky and unbreathable air in Australia because of raging forest fires. Our futures are all connected. That is why we must bring the world together and enact a Green New Deal,” posted Sanders.

British actress Emma Thompson issued a dire prediction during a “climate crisis” protest in London last month; suggesting humans may soon have to consume their pets for protein to survive the coming apocalypse.
“Better wrap up warm, stockpile food and remember there is a surprising amount of protein in the average household pet,” said Thompson.
“Expect crop failures, water contamination, damaged houses and ruined lives, and we will see these persistent weather fronts continue to wreak havoc across the nation, albeit with one or two days of dry and settled weather,” she continued.

“I may well be hypocritical by flying but I’m conscious of flying so I fly much less, but sometimes I have to when I’m working. But I’ll continue to find ways to get to places without flying,” Thompson concluded.
