Retired Australian politician slammed for his 'repulsive' and 'shameful' tweet about the New Zealand volcano catastrophe that has left at least five dead

Must not make sarcastic comments about Warmists.  Volcanoes are a big source of alleged greenhouse gases so it is a relevant comment

David Leyonhjelm has been slammed for mocking climate change in the wake of the White Island eruption in New Zealand that has left five people dead.

The former NSW Senator made the comments on Monday while replying to a viral tweet showing footage of smoke billowing from the deadly volcano moments after it erupted. 

'But the emissions...' Leyonhjelm tweeted, referring to greenhouse gas emissions that have contributed to climate change.

The politician has since come under fire with dozens slamming his remarks and branding him 'ignorant' and 'insensitive.'  

'How is this appropriate when people have died including Australians!' one woman said.

New Zealand authorities confirmed at least five people were killed and dozens more were severely injured after a volcano erupted off the coast of New Zealand's North Island on Monday afternoon.

Volcanoes emit so called greenhouse gasses which may affect climate, but they also drive dust high in the atmosphere which can block sunlight and cause cooling.
