Fire Storms

Professor Cadbeary, Bomund and Gustave feel frightened just reading about it.

Bomund: So all that smoke, although we are far away is … ?

Cadbeary: It’s from all the big fires, yes.

Gustave: But couldn’t they have done something a lot time ago? So the fires did not get so big and fast now?

Cadbeary: Yes. But nothing was seriously done.

Bomund: A bear would never Do Nothing At All. Not about about fires.

Gustave: We bears are terrified of fires.

There are all kinds of things that your bear and mine would never do. Sadly, they are things that People do anyway.

Our Professor Cadbury Bear, Gustave and Bomund look at the news when no-one is looking. And too often the things they see are things they wish they hadn’t.

Here Professor Caddy stumbles on news about the Artic.

A Bear Wouldn’t Do That. Oh, no, not these bears

Meet Professor Cadbeary (Caddy), and her friends Gustave and Bomund. These brave bears are prepared to read about some of the awful things that People do.

It’s a miserable job for any bear, but someone has to do it.

Professor Cadbeary, Gustave and Bomund steel themselves to read the news.

Here at ‘A Bear Wouldn’t Do That’, our trio are bewildered that anyone would imprison refugee kids or pollute the ocean with plastics or heat it up until fellow bears have no ice floes and the dolphins are dying from the parasites multiplying inside them … among other awful things.

Most of the articles studied by Gustav, Prof Caddy and Bomund are published by the Australian Broadcasting Commission and The Guardian Australia, publications brave enough to report the unbearable.

In future posts Cadbeary,  Bomund and Gustav will highlight some of the things that bears would never do. And some things that are so good that bears would do them too.

This blog ‘ A Bear Wouldn’t Do That’ is by Mark O’Dwyer, Perth, Australia.  Mark would not do these things either.
