Extinction Rebellion has demanded immediate action on climate change in the wake of the recent bushfires. The climate activist group has warned that federal MPs will be prevented from accessing Canberra airport when parliament rises for the year on 5 December unless they take action to shut down the fossil fuel industry and adopt a target of net zero emissions by 2025. Shadow resources minister Joel Fitzgibbon says the latter demand would destroy the Australian economy. The proposed blockade has also been criticised by Liberal-National Party MPs Michelle Landry and Keith Pitt.
