What are the consequences of bushfires?

Scientists from the University of Melbourne, analyzing the data of the Swedish satellite "One", showed that the column of smoke rose to an altitude of 17-19 kilometers a week after the start of the fires. Combustion products circulated around the planet at the latitude of the tropics for six weeks.

Scientists explain this phenomenon by the fact that forest fires are a hotbed of open fire, from where, like from a fire, a huge mass of smoke rises. There it cools and, rising even higher, forms a cloud - it is called pyrocumulative. It continues to gain height due to internal convective flows and turns into a thundercloud. Rains may not go at the same time, and lightnings cause new fires.

It is possible that soot from forest fires, being in the stratosphere for eight or more months, globally affects the climate. On the one hand, it can cool the air by scattering solar radiation, as is the result of volcanic eruptions. On the other hand, a huge amount of CO2 - the strongest greenhouse gas - enters the atmosphere. Of course, it enters the natural carbon cycle on the planet and will again be absorbed by the biomass from which it is taken. However, there are signs that this natural balance may be shaken, and too many fires, droughts, and the lack of rain all over the world will make forests unable to grow as fast as before. And an excess of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere enhances its heating.

A dangerous tropical virus, Japanese encephalitis, is spreading in Australia. It has been identified in residents in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.

The virus is carried by mosquitoes, it has already infected 34 people, 3 of them died. Many pigs also died.

Previously, Australia has never been a region where the tropical diseases characteristic of Asia have spread. The climate of the continent was not conducive to rapid transmission of the virus. However, recent floods have made it possible for the virus to spread through mosquitoes thanks to puddles of stagnant water. Such puddles often appear after the strongest tropical downpours. Thus, the virus has traveled hundreds of kilometers to the southern and western parts of the country via mosquitoes.
