    • Ellie,

      The Australian fires are a heart breaking thing. I didn’t realize just how much they were affecting Australia and even more so how much they were affecting other countries neighboring Australia. The line, “Skyrocketing temperatures and shifting winds makes it impossible to breathe and see not only in Australia but neighboring countries from thousands of miles away” was really shocking. It is crazy to think that the range of harm due to the fires is so large. We as a society need to do something about this. Here is an article providing some more general knowledge on the bushfires.
