Australia's Terrifying Bushfires Remind Us Climate Change Is Here

WILDFIRE SEASON IS YEAR ROUND NOW

Bushfires are raging through southeastern Australia and have possibly killed
hundreds of koalas at one nature reserve. This comes as firefighters finally
contain California’s Kincade Fire in Wine Country and as Friday marks the
first anniversary of the deadly Camp Fire in California. Climate change is
affecting all parts of the globe, and it appears to be the culprit for
Australia’s early fire season this year.

A Guardian analysis on fire patterns over the last 44 years found a
connection among weather events, such as El Niño, climate change, and the
country’s fire season. During an El Niño, the weather grows hot and dry,
making bush more susceptible to catching fire. As a result, the season may
be starting sooner due to climate change. That won’t always be the case,
though, and a mild fire season doesn’t mean climate change isn’t here, per
the Guardian.

This fire season is already off to a scary start, though. Eighty-two fires
are burning across New South Wales, according to the New South Wales Rural
Fire Service. Twelve emergency warnings are in place, which means the fires
are considered “very dangerous,” per the fire service. In Queensland and New
South Wales, at least four homes have been destroyed, reports the Weekend
Australian, but that number could be closer to 20.

The impact goes beyond humans though. Half of the koalas living in the Lake
Innes Nature Reserve are presumed dead, according to Reuters. That’s about
350 of these beloved animals, which are facing increased threat due to loss
of habitat and climate change. It’s bad news all around for Australia and
how climate change is impacting the country. Australia began the year with
record-breaking heatwaves, and it looks like it might end the year with
devastating wildfires.

This is what climate change looks like.
