"He's part of a generation that is terrified and aghast with what they're seeing with the climate crisis," Mr Bandt told ABC's Insiders on Sunday.

Bushfires sparked political brawling over climate change last week, with Nationals MPs taking aim at the Greens for discussing the issue during the disaster.

But Mr Bandt, a senior figure in the minor party, stands by his accusation that Prime Minister Scott Morrison was putting lives and towns at risk.

"Unless the government gets the climate crisis under control and reins in the use of coal, then this generation is going to rise up with a fury matched only by the intensity of the fires," the Greens MP said.

Labor frontbencher Stephen Jones said some politicians had let themselves down during the debate.

But he wants the opposition to remain focused on climate change, concentrating on jobs in renewable energy.

"If you talk to the firies on the frontline they get the fact they've got an emergency to deal with, but they also get the fact that our climate is changing," Mr Jones told Sky News.
