6 New Shocking Australian Bushfire Visuals (January 2020)
I think you’ll agree with me when I say:
The devastation being caused by the current bushfires in Australia is shocking.
Well, it turns out, it is even more shocking when you get a true sense of the scale of the disaster.
In this article I am going to show you 6 map overlays that clearly demonstrate the size and scale of it… by overlaying the fires on (perhaps) more familiar continents.
Why am I interested in this you may be asking? Firstly, I’m an Australian citizen. And secondly, I work for a private jet company; a bird’s eye view of the world is a regular sight for us.
We are kind of used to seeing Australia on fire – unfortunately. The first image is probably fairly familiar to you.
Australia On Fire
Now let’s take a look at how that would look over Europe.
Now let’s adjust to Western Europe.
The entire countries of Ireland, the UK, Belgium, France, Spain and Portugal would be greatly affected.
It’s getting hot in here!
Now, how about the US?
The entire East Coast is in flames.
How do Asia and South America fair?
No End In Sight
Meteorologists warn that, for the moment, the intense weather and elevated fire risk in Australia is set to continue. 
All maps are to scale as per Google Maps. The icons represent the source of a fire, not the size of the fire.
