Australian Bushfires by Raha M.
This year, the Australian bushfires have ravaged through central Australia, destroying homes and killing humans and animals alike. So what’s causing these fires?
Australia is known for having hot and dry summers, making it easy for the flames to spread and lightning is also playing a major role. However, that doesn’t mean humans aren’t involved. People in South Wales have been purposefully starting fires, which eventually spread. However, most of the fires have been caused by global warming. The heat in the air combined with Australia’s dry deserts make it prone to fires. At least 25 people have been killed, over 3, 000 homes destroyed and over 1 billion animals are dead.
