VTV.vn - More than 270 scientists have signed an open letter to Australia's leaders, calling on them to abandon partisan politics and to take action on climate change.

The letter comes as Parliament sits for the first time this year amid Australia's ongoing bushfire crisis.

The scientists warned that an increase in bushfires was just one part of a deadly equation that suggested the impacts of climate change were coming faster, stronger and more regularly.

They urged to have a clear path to reduce Australia's total greenhouse gas emissions and for Australian leaders to commit to pushing for meaningful global action to combat climate change.
