Australia has eight climate zones, which dictate aspects such as temperature, humidity, and the approaches used to construct different structures to overcome the effects of the varying weather conditions. Over the years, climate change and global warming have had a significant impact on the outcomes of events, leading to the Australian bush fires. If efforts are not made to stop the rising impact of global warming, the hot and dry weather is likely to affect its impact on the country’s green cover and the environment at large. Individuals should comply with the directives issued to influence outcomes in the contemporary environment.
Australia is currently involved in promoting efforts towards the maintenance of a wide vegetation free zone bordering properties to reduce the spread of the bushfires and their impact on the changing perspectives of individuals. Likewise, buildings are not required to have fire-resistant materials that reduce the impact of damage caused by the bushfires (Shi et al., 2019). Likewise, the government is engaged in the removal of vegetation that is likely to spark the wildfires upon the exposure of the hot and dry climate. By effectively utilizing the harnessed vegetation and converting it into renewable energy, the country will make significant milestones that will yield favorable outcomes.
Wildfires increase the amount of carbon dioxide, black carbon, and ozone precursors deposited in the atmosphere, which in turn escalate the dangerous effects of climate change and global warming. It should be noted that the emissions from the wildfires affect the clouds and interfere with the rain patterns, a move that has devastating effects on the global climate outside Australia. The loss of unique plants and animals erodes the cultural diversity that balances the ecosystem, exposing future generations to a wide range of unprecedented problems.
