I made this extrapolation only 5 days ago, hoping against hope that I was wrong. However, NBC news does report the following: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/australia-wildfire-bushfire-size-2020-n1112006 From the article: As of Jan. 7, approximately 32,400 square miles, an area of land a little smaller than Indiana, have burned since the blazes began. //////// The article goes on to say the square mileage is the equivalent of 25.5 million acres burned. My own calculations would indicate a lesser number, just under 21 million acres. Saying that tho, the 25.5 million acre estimate can be proven true, only with the addition of time. Whatever the number, the Australian wildfires are unprecedented, raging & the definition of wild.
