  1. We’re nearly 100km from the nearest (current) fire and loads of people have been sent home from work with breathing problems. If you can’t sit still in an air conditioned office, no wonder you can’t play a competitive game of fucking tennis. This narrative of “everything’s fine, just carry on”, in relation to sport, politics, conservation, [the opening of new coal mines in koala habitats…](https://www.reddit.com/r/australia/comments/eojk67/help_us_stop_a_newly_approved_coal_mine_to_save) not really cromulent. The moment you need international aid and practical assistance to tackle a domestic problem is the time you start thinking in terms of emergency and crisis, not BAU.

  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.bbc.com/sport/tennis/51122449) reduced by 84%. (I’m a bot)

    > Dalila Jakupovic, who retired from her Australian Open qualifying match because of the air quality, says every player she has spoken to had "Headaches and problems breathing".

    > "I think all of the players yesterday suffered more than the ones playing today because not all matches are going to be finished today," Jakupovic told BBC Radio 5 Live Breakfast.

    > "Yesterday, whoever we talk to, all the players had headaches, were feeling chest pains, had problems breathing. It was horrible.”

  3. Seems like Australia is a unlivable shit show. You can’t buy that kind of bad press.

  4. maybe ScoMo will give a shit if this affects sports.

  5. Global warming really smoked the competition this year

  6. That’s not a surprise, is it?

  7. Honestly, this would be more likely to get the cunts in Canberra to listen more than anything.
