NASA claims that smoke from Australian flames is about to complete a full world tour

Lheavy rain would do little to stop the huge fires, but it would make it impossible to conduct controlled burns to reduce fuel loads in strategic areas. It could also, as in the case of last week, make it difficult for firefighters to operate heavy equipment.

At the beginning of Monday, however, the New South Wales Rural Fire Service expressed some optimism, tweeting that if the forecasts “come to fruition … this will be all of our Christmas, birthday, engagement, anniversary, wedding and graduation gifts gathered in one “.

More than 11 million hectares have been lost in flames in this fire season, after the hottest and driest calendar year in Australia.

A recent Australian Broadcasting Corporation investigation found that of the burnt earth in New South Wales this season, only about one percent can be officially attributed to arson. In Victoria, where over 1.25 million hectares are burned, only 385 hectares – or 0.03 percent – have been attributed to suspicious circumstances.
