Australia wildfires could become ‘normal’ elsewhere in world, say UK scientists

Warning: This report contains disturbing images of dead animals.

The devastating wildfires in Australia could become ‘normal’ unless action is taken to rapidly curb the greenhouse gases driving global warming.

That’s the warning from a group of British scientists in a new report that confirms climate change has increased the risk of the extreme fires seen in recent weeks.

Smoke from those fires is also having a major impact, with Melbourne today experiencing the worst air quality in the world.
