Run for a Safe Climate arrives home in pouring rain

Runners for a Safe Climate on the final leg of their journey from Kerferd Road to St Kilda.
Since November 2nd, Run for a Safe Climate has been on the move from Cooktown, running to the Great Barrier Reef, the headwaters of the Murray, Mt Kosciuszko, the Koorong, and the Great Ocean Road.
These are emergency service workers: firemen, police, and defence service personnel. They are the people responding to the community safety emergencies created by global warming.

Everywhere they saw the evidence of climate change: bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef, reduced snow season in the Alps, the Koorong saltier than the sea, and the most consecutive hot days over 35 degrees as they headed to Canberra where Nick Minchin was denying that human induced climate change is a reality.
