The 16-year-old appeared on ABC's Q&A on Monday evening, where he was asked how he would handle the country's environmental emergencies if he were prime minister.

The teenager, who was praised last year for his first appearance in the panel program, argued that the problem is not & # 39; ideologically & # 39; problem.

& # 39; It is not a political opinion that climate change has not contributed to these horrific forest fires in NSW and Queensland, & # 39; he began.

& # 39; This is not a political idea that originated from scratch, this is the Bureau of Meteorology … who else should we believe?

& # 39; It is a huge problem and I think we should have a government that first recognizes that there are no senators behind it that think the Bureau is tampering with temperature data – it's ridiculous. & # 39;

Storer called for a & # 39; revolution & # 39 ;, suggesting that Australia needs to revise its energy generation system to become a sustainable power plant.

Hebben We have a huge coastline, we have so many opportunities here, but narrow-minded people in Canberra, and from certain parts of the media and some commentators, it really limits what we can see, and it really has become ideological when it isn't should be because life is on earth. & # 39;

Storer's response was greeted with great applause from the public before being asked if Australians should be allowed to discuss climate change while forest fires claim people's lives and homes.

& # 39; You have to be sensitive to it, but you can't put your head in the sand and pretend it doesn't happen … and talk about it when these forest fires are over, because the bushfire season hasn't started yet.

Storer's reactions made him trending on Twitter, with many calling him to be the next prime minister and even comparing him to the late Bob Hawke

& # 39; More fires are starting, more human lives will unfortunately be lost, there will be a huge refugee crisis due to climate change and you know we have a government and our missions continue to rise, it is quite disgusting. & # 39;

& # 39; Hard to deny that, with at least an interest in tackling / discussing problems that would not make young Dylan Storer a great leader for Australia. Maybe another Bob Hawke, & tweet one person.

Another said: & # 39; Dylan Storer is an excellent example of the number of thoughtful, positive, and articulated young people out there in Australia. & # 39;

& # 39; Dylan Storer is crushing it again tonight at Q&A – compassionate, articulated, with great insight and perspective … he restores my confidence in young people, & # 39; tweeted another.

Storer then addressed the current state of politics in the country and called on politicians to & # 39; be more honest & # 39; to be.

& # 39; I think – for politicians in the panel and also for people who watch – they are just sincere, honest with people, people will respect that.

& # 39; You may not win the news poll of the day, but in general people will respect your authenticity. All Australians across the political spectrum love Bob Hawke, and I think that's because he has shown a level of authenticity, Australia liked that.

& # 39; I have been lucky enough to meet a few politicians from all sides of politics, and they are really nice people, but I think the face that is put up in public sometimes makes people feel jade and I don't think that's good for democracy. & # 39;

Storer, from the Kimberley region of WA, became famous last year when he first appeared on the panel to discuss indigenous issues.

The then 15-year-old bewildered host Tony Jones with his eloquent response left him to ask how old he was.

Storer argued that the history of Aboriginal Australia in secondary schools should be mandatory, considering his experience in the small and majority indigenous community where he grew up.

He also considered Tony Abbott's role as ambassador for indigenous affairs, implemented by Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

"You need to look at the underlying issues, they all really relate to the way Australia was arranged, colonized, invaded," he said.

& # 39; This top-down approach to government comes in and says that we, from all people, are going to appoint Tony Abbott to handle the native presence, I find really counter-intuitive. & # 39;

The audience burst into applause and had Jones ask the boy to remind him how old he really was, to which Storer replied: & # 39; I'm 15. & # 39;
