When the floods came on Sunday February 27, everything on the lower level of their house in was submerged. Kirsten describes the experience: “I have not been this frightened of mother nature before… the water rose so quickly and had such a force I was scared and was in flight mode."David and Kirsten are concerned about the future. Kirsten says “Something is going on to cause the increase in frequency of the weather events.”“It makes me feel weary, and the unpredictability of events makes me feel very anxious.”David says: “It does feel like it is all a bit late… but I don’t think it is impossible. We are a resilient and clever species – with some pockets of stupidity and greed.” And adds: “We shouldn’t vote for those who drag their heels or deny there is a problem.”Locations:Australia-Brisbane-OceaniaDate:4 Mar, 2022Credit:© Tammy Law / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5760px X 3840pxKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Day-Floods-Indoors-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Men-One person-VictimsShoot:Clean up after Floods in Brisbane, AustraliaBrisbane residents describe their experiences of recent floods after a record-breaking 792 millimetres of rain fell on the city within three days, impacting an estimated 15,000 homes. In late February and March 2022, intense rainfall and floods affected millions of residents in Queensland and New South Wales, causing devastating loss of life and an estimated AUD$5billion worth of damage. Greenpeace Australia Pacific has long advocated for a climate compensation fund paid for by the coal, oil and gas companies whose activities are fuelling the climate crisis and the ensuing increase in destructive extreme weather events like these floods.
