CO2 emitted in Australian fires rises above total annual emissions of 116 countries


In recent months, the amount of CO2 emitted to the atmosphere as a result of forest fires that have affected Australia has been 400 million tons. This is more than the total of 116 countries that cause the least carbon emissions.

Forest fires under the influence of Australia unfortunately does not stop. Hundreds of millions of tons of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere as a result of forest fires, triggered by rising temperatures, unfortunately feeds global warming, which is unfortunately responsible for these fires. It is stated that the amount of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere as a result of the fires that raged the eastern coasts of the country as a result of the events turned into a vicious circle is 400 million tons.

This is more than the total amount of the 116 countries that cause the world’s least carbon emissions, which also means a 75% increase in the country’s CO2 emissions in 2019.

This figure of 400 million tons, which is a very high value, may not seem very high when looking at the history of Australia. Because the country is in the period known as the fire season. According to the European Union Copernicus Observation Service, 600 million tons of CO2 was released into the atmosphere during the fire season between 2011 and 2012. Experts, however, point to emissions in New South Wales, where this year’s fires intensify. State Rural Fire Agency data is terrible. According to the Agency of the 5.2 million hectares as of July 1 (Turkey, 77.9452 million hectares) of green space was ash case.

As we mentioned above, climate change and the fire dilemma, which has become a vicious circle, make things even more difficult for Australia. The data of the Australian National Science Agency and the Meteorological Association in 2018 also support this thesis. According to the information shared, climate change triggers fires and raises average temperatures in the country by more than 1 degree Celsius.

If you look at the balance sheet that emerged in recent months, the area of ​​fires in South Korea, as much as an area of ​​10 million hectares, ashes, more than 25 people’s lives, thousands of houses made use of, evacuating the situation of hundreds of thousands of people on the agenda And we can say that he has destroyed more than a billion animals.
