7 things everyone should know about Australia’s wildfire disaster
1) The fires broke out amid a record-breaking heat wave
The fires are concentrated along Australia’s southeast coast, in the states of New South Wales and Victoria. The southeast is the most severely affected, but fires have also hit every Australian state and territory this season.
The fires started in various ways: some by lightning, some by human actions, including arson. However, it’s the climate conditions that provide ample fuel for the fires to grow and spread.
2) Climate change is partly to blame. But so is weather variability.
3) The bigger trend: Australia’s fire season is getting longer and more dangerous
Wildfires are a natural part of the ecosystem in Australia. Many plants and other organisms even depend on regular blazes to germinate, cycle nutrients, and clear decay.
That said, the climate is getting hotter due to human activities. And that extra heat makes fires more likely.
4) Australia is a biodiversity hotspot and millions of plants and animals are in danger
The loss here is almost hard to fathom. A staggering 1 billion animals are now estimated dead, though there’s a good deal of uncertainty in that figure.
5) There’s lots of smoke
Smoke is a hazard in itself. It’s an irritating pollutant that exacerbates respiratory illnesses and heart problems. Fine particles from the smoke and soot can be smaller than 2.5 micrometers — tiny enough to lodge themselves into the crannies of the lungs and pass into the bloodstream.
6) Thousands of people’s lives are being massively disrupted, and the government’s response hasn’t been inspiring
7) You can help
If you’re in Australia, Givit has a list of specific items needed by people and organizations affected by the bushfires.
People with emergency response training cansign up to volunteerin Queensland.
The World Wildlife Fund is collecting donations to restore habitats for koalas impacted by the fires.
You can donate to the Australian Red Cross’s fire recovery and relief fund.
You can also donate directly to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service, the Country Fire Service Foundation in South Australia, and the Country Fire Authority in Victoria.
