What’s really driving the bush fires down under?

af | 19. januar 2020 | Konsekvenser

Bush fires have been a natural part of the Australian ecosystem for at least 400,000 years, but whenever human beings get involved we see a spike in the data record. The first was 38,000 years ago when we first arrived there, and the second was around 1788 when the Europeans landed. This year’s fires have been particularly brutal, and scientists are pointing to a number of climate change driven events that all combined in 2019 to provide the perfect conditions for catastrophic consequences. This week we take a look at the dire warnings our scientists are giving us.
