Australian mountain fires have been going on for several months and have not been extinguished. Recently, there are news that NASA satellite images show that the Australian mountain fire smoke has spread to South America. What's going on in the smoke of the Aoshan fire to South America? Here is a summary of the reasons behind the outbreak of the Aoshan fire. Let's take a look at the details below.
What's going on in the fire from Oshan to South America:
Forest fires caused by record-breaking high temperatures in Australia in recent months have been going on for several months, and NASA satellite images mapped the overwhelming scale of Australian mountain fires from space.
Satellite imagery shows that the area of a cloud of smoke from a mountain fire on the east coast far exceeds the area of the United States, and even spreads to South America. Meteorological companies have said that the smog may even reach Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil.
The impact of the mountain fire even exceeded the Amazon forest fire, destroying an area the size of the island of Ireland.
At present, the fire has killed 25 people, hundreds of millions of wild animals were buried in the sea of fire, and countless vegetation was burned, which has brought a huge impact on the global climate.
The Australian Meteorological Agency warned that the devastating fire could continue for several months and winds brought mountain fire smoke and dust into Canberra, making Canberra's air quality the worst in the world.
Since October last year, more than 6 million hectares of land have been destroyed by fire in Australia. More than 20,000 koalas died in the Australian Kangaroo Island fire.
Reasons behind the raging fire in Aoshan:
Forest fire prevention and control can only be early detection, early control, early extinguishment, rapid decision-making, large-scale investment of human, material, and financial resources to carry out fire fighting and cutting fire belts to control the spread of fire.
Australia has weakened its firefighting expenditure this year. Under the apparent lack of disaster prevention investment, the Australian Prime Minister went on holiday when the mountain fire burned for more than 3 months, burned more than 6 million hectares in 4 months, and burned in major cities. The influence came to mind and sent additional personnel to fight the fire.
In addition, the abnormal weather in Australia this year, the high temperature and almost no rainfall, resulting in even artificial rainfall.
Australia has a lot of plains, and the isolation zone is useless when the wind rises. Eucalyptus is also known as solid fuel. Coupled with high temperature and dryness, government inaction is a disaster.
