“…Australia’s severe bushfires released a massive amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, equivalent to the annual emissions from commercial air travel worldwide, a new report reveals.
Australia’s black summer took 33 lives, killed one billion animals, destroyed 2439 homes, burnt millions of hectares, wiped billions out of the economy and put a devastating amount of Co2 back into the atmosphere, the first comprehensive overview, compiled by the Climate Council.
The catastrophic bushfires
spewed an average of
900 million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the
atmosphere, more than Australia’s annual
emissions that sit around 531 million
tonnes, Australian National University
climate scientist Will Steffen
told The New Daily.
“This is an enormous burst of carbon
dioxide, bigger than what we’ve ever
seen before,” Professor Steffen said.
“They were more than our annual national emissions…! ! ! “
As numerous web sites will testify,
Co2 is not a pollutant, – NASA
however the fire damage to
human life, buildings,
wildlife & forests
justifies his concerns.

Many other countries now grow Australian gum
trees (Eucalyptus), and to their sorrow have
discovered their high flammability.
