How did the Australia fires start?

User Avatar
According to Diana Bernstein, climate scientist and Assistant Research Professor in the Division of Marine Science at the University of Southern Mississippi: “Apart from human activities, Australia’s hot and dry summers are to blame for the start and the spread of the wildfires." Although the region knows to expect a fire season, these most recent fires have been worse than most. This is because Australia is currently experiencing its worst drought in decades as well as a heatwave that broke the record for the highest nationwide average temperature in December. These elements combined have caused the fires to spread more rapidly than usual. Many experts also reference climate change as a contributing factor, as the increasingly extreme weather conditions are taking their toll on an already at-risk area. There is also the human element—there have already been 24 people charged with deliberately starting bushfires this season.

Why December is likely to be warmer in Australia than in united kingdom?

Because the two countries are on oppsite sides of the planet. In winter, the northern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun - making our climate colder. At the same time, the southern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun - making Australia's climate warmer.

Know the content and how to teach it. Lead teachers must be able to "lead initiatives […] to evaluate and improve knowledge of content and teaching strategies," as well as to "monitor and evaluate the implementation of teaching strategies to expand learning opportunities and content knowledge for all students" (AITSL, 2011).
