It is estimated that more than 906,000 hectares (2,238,775 acres) of forest in the Amazon biome were burned in 2019.
By Christmas, the Australian bush fires razed over 3,000,000 hectares (7,413,161 acres) and in the past week, countless thousands more have gone up.
The fires have destroyed over 700 houses and killed ten people to date.
Thanks to all who emailed their concerns and well wishes. For the moment, I am safe and unlikely to need to evacuate.
Cheers to everyone who took the time to read my posts over the past year, and a special thank you to those who commented on them.
Wishing everyone happiness and prosperity in 2020.
