According to a 2007 study published in the journal Climatic Change, the presently-raging fires are just a portent of things to come. By 2050, says the report, the risk of fire in the New South Wales region in southeastern Australia is set to climb by 25 percent. By 2100, extreme fires will be 50 to 100 percent more likely than they are today, depending on how aggressively we go about curbing future greenhouse gas emissions. These changes in Australia’s flammability, the authors say, are driven by rising temperatures and plummeting humidity levels over the southern continent

It is systematic and planetary in scale. Mainly a result of changes in climate in terms of the ENSO cycles.

Each individual drought event will be a unique weather event for the specific region. But the PREVALENCE of such droughts in Australia is global climate change from AGW.

No, a global phenomenon.

I disagree at blaming climate for bushfires inside of Australia. Real reason of so many bushfires inside of Australia due from too many Whites Australians boys never seen at school never for diligent study at Koran and never for working hard at Australian economy but idiot minds of Whites Australians boys either filled with drugs or else getting fun from playing with fire. All Whites Australians boys must for protection of Australian population now sent away to Nauru or PNG until not anymore practising of troublemaking.

by 2100, there is 100% chance that these ridiculous alarmist predictions will be correct
