The devastating effects of Anthropogenic climate change in AUSTRALIA. #SaveAustralia


Amazon rainforest was in fires recently and now it's the worst situation for Australia wildfires which began late this July. 24 people have lost their lives nationwide, and in southern states alone 1300 houses have been destroyed. Because of this hazardous situation, there is heat , drought and a lot of impact on Climate change which is worse. The fires are in every state, but New South Wales has been the hardest hit. The blazes have torn through bush land, wooded areas, and national parks like the Blue Mountains we are seeing every day there is photos of Kangaroos stuck while running, wildfire and the level of destruction. The main cities like Melbourne and Sydney where the fires have damaged houses and also thick plumes. In 2019 December Sydney smoke was so bad that the air quality measured 11 times the "hazardous level".

The main cause for the fire this season during the Australian summer, with hot, dry the weather is making easy for the blaze to spread. Natural causes are to blame most of the time, like lightning strikes which traveled more than 20 kilometers in just five hours. In 2009 Black Saturday fires killed 173 people in Victoria, making it the deadliest bush fire disaster on record.

Some of the experts say climate change has worsened the environment and the impact of natural disasters like fires and floods has reached extreme conditions at a greater intensity. In 2019 Amazon rainforest fires burned more than 7 million hectares (about 17.5 million acres), according to Brazilian officials. Now in Australia 15 million acres of land have already been scorched and more than 100 blazes are still active don't know how much worse it could get. Australia’s ecology even in places where plants and animals have adapted to yearly fires is very heartbreaking.

It's estimated that 8000 koalas (one-third of the koala population in New South Wales)have been killed- a figure that is feared to be even higher as the fires continue . Due to their slow movement, koalas are more at risk as they 're unable to escape flames. Thankfully, conditions are beginning to ease as firefighters are gaining control over several dangerous fires. The rain has fallen recently in fire-ravaged parts of Australia and temperatures have dropped - but officials have warned that blazes will "take off" again. These are the devastating effects of anthropogenic climate change. This is the slaughter of life, the destruction of nature and the loss of hope. Let's make 2020 the year that we stand up for climate.It's time to speak up for the voiceless and take action for what is right.
