The media is full of information about Australia’s bushfire disaster, but who has time to sort through miles of text and figures? Not to mention, there is an awful lot of misinformation out there, from fake pics showing the whole of Australia burning like a volcano (it isn’t) to out-and-out lies told by mainstream media. Like when a very major news channel said the fires were started by arsonists (they weren’t). Fortunately, the cool cats at CoolCat Casino crunched the numbers, separated the wheat from the chaff, and came up with a dazzling infographic that puts the whole event in perspective.
If you want to get to the heart of the matter quickly and visually, check out the Australian Bushfires 2019/2020 Infographic on CoolCat Casino’s blog. It explains how bushfires in Australia have been going on for eons, but they have a much bigger impact in the warmer and drier climates of today. The infographic is broken down into handy, easily digestible sections which show the map of the fires, the location of the lightning strike that started it all, and the tragic impact the fires have made on the animals and citizens of Australia.
The infographic also shows how everyone on earth comes together to help others in need, and the Donations for Bushfire Relief highlights the most interesting donations, from the largest to the strangest. Share the whole infographic on social media – or just your favorite sections. And it does our heart good to see that gamblers and casino people have also donated millions to the cause. Our reporters have covered the Crown Casino in our news section for quite a while now, and there have been more than a few scandals going on there. But Crown owner and Australian bigwig James Packer personally donated $5 million to bushfire relief efforts. Good on ya, mate!
