As Australia battles, unprecedented bushfires and a record-breaking heatwave, netizens from all over the world are in solidarity to '#PrayForAustralia'. The recent escalations in the raging fires, Auckland turning orange, glaciers covered in ashes, and increasing death toll of both humans and animals have fueled the talks about how 'climate change is real'. The people have taken over social media to voice their criticism and grief over the loss of life and infrastructure in the island continent.
While people making memes about the WW3, Australia is suffering the biggest fire ever happened— ⚔️ 𝐌𝐀𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐑 𝐁𝐥𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐬 ⚔️™ᴮ (@BladesTmb) January 5, 2020
Wild fire broke out very quickly because of hot and dry weather.

Many were seen sharing 'heartbreaking' images of the devastation in the country but also urged others to donate for the cause. Celebrities like Selena Gomez, Pink, among others have contributed their funds to help Australia in its battle with nature. The people on the internet are 'moved' by the destruction and 'would never wish on anybody'.
I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires. I am pledging a donation of $500,000 directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines. My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz ❤️ pic.twitter.com/kyjDbhoXpp— P!nk (@Pink) January 4, 2020
