Australia’s wildfires are not only impacting Australia’s atmosphere, but will also change the entire earth’s climate. The Australian bush fires are so massive, that they’re triggering extensive weather patterns and globally varying the environment.

According to Scientists, their repercussions are expected to impact millions of people in other countries and continents as well. Even if you live far from the fire prone area, you cannot escape from the changes in climate caused by the megafires—like those blazing across Australia.

The bushfires in Australia have become so massive and powerful that they are generating their own weather. This is not just a small scale impact; these wildfires are pumping vast amounts of carbon dioxide, which is resulting in GLOBAL WARMING.

Thunderstorm-like plumes of smoke (created by these forest fires) results in the formation of clouds of pollutants. When these clouds will make their way across the ocean, we all may be dealing with its impact.

It is quite common for dust to be transported to New Zealand glaciers, but I would say that the amount of transport right now is pretty phenomenal — I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it,” Monash University professor Andrew Mackintosh told The Guardian. “It is concerning to me to see so much material being deposited on the glaciers.”
