Famous street artist creates painting in which he accuses political, media and business titans of fueling devastating wildfires by ignoring climate change – before Pauline Hanson makes a VERY valid point
- 2SM morning show radio host Marcus Paul posted a photo of the climate change mural
- He praised the change of government and hoped it would help stop climate change
- But Pauline Hanson has come back by accusing the artist of apparent hypocrisy
- Her response on social media got twice as many likes as the photo in the mural
Pauline Hanson has sneered at a notorious painter’s brutal street art attack, which shows politicians and media giants fueling Australia’s bushfire crisis.
Morning radio show host Marcus Paul posted a photo of Scottie Marsh’s giant mural to his Facebook account to greet Labour’s election victory.
“Finally… the Australian environment now has a fighting chance,” the 2SM star wrote.

The mural shows the burning interior being hosed down by firefighters, as native animals such as koalas and kangaroos seek shelter, while another is rescued by a surfer.
It also shows a crowd of political, media and business leaders looking down from the top of an ivory sandstone castle tower while dismissing the danger.

Mining magnates Gina Rinehart and Clive Palmer are also part of the elite crowd.
Pauline Hanson weighed in to sled the artist for apparent hypocrisy for using oil-based paint
The post was liked nearly 1,700 times within hours of posting, but then Senator Hanson weighed in to tempt the radio host for apparent hypocrisy.
“I hope they’re watercolors, Marcus,” she posted.
‘Paint is a derivative of oil. And the pressure suits they used contained propane and butane – another derivative of gas.
“We can’t stop the use of hydrocarbons without sacrificing life as we know it.”
Her post was liked twice as much as the original, with 3,200 thumbs up, laugh out loud and heart emojis from followers.
“Well said Pauline,” fan Dianne Bourke wrote. “The climate activists are not known for their brains and common sense, as you politely pointed out.”
And Shauny Bennet wrote: ‘Double standards for the virtue signalers. Different rules for the average Australian.’

Scottie Marsh also recently painted a huge mural of Australian pop star Kid Laroi and posted photos to his Instagram account of the star in front of the giant portrait at Redfern in Sydney.
But another poster pointed out that murals are usually made with more eco-friendly acrylic paints rather than oil-based paints.
Rhi Jackson wrote: ‘Acrylic (water-based, not oil-based) paint is commonly used for murals, so don’t worry too much.’
Scottie Marsh has painted numerous large-scale murals around Sydney and beyond, many of which focus on Scott Morrison.
He called his mural ‘The Ivory Tower of Australian Climate Denial Over a Burning Australia’.
