Sky News host Chris Kenny says it is “sickening” to observe the “hysterical politics of climate change” permeating into the coverage of Australia’s devastating bushfires. “These fires are terrible, they have taken lives, they have ruined lives,” Mr Kenny said. Mr Kenny said it “is pretty sickening,” to observe “facts, history and context thrown out the window” in order for a “climate alarmist” narrative to be pushed.
