Google Trends recently released statistical data which showed that search interest for climate change has surged since the beginning of Australian bushfires. The fierce bushfires have killed 32 people and obliterated hundreds of houses. 

In another post, the analysis website revealed that the search for hazard reduction also rose following the increase in debates to ascertain the underlying causes and severity of the fires.

For long Australian PM Scott Morrisson has claimed that the bushfires are an outcome of persistent climate change, reported International media. On the other hand, the conservative media has emphasised on mismanaged hazard reduction as the cause of the uncontrolled fires. 

Misinformation led to rise in interest

In further tweets, Google said that the misinformation spread by the online bots has fuelled people's interest in hazard reduction. It went on to say that at the moment it can not reveal the exact numbers of searches though it concluded that the search for climate change surpassed the search for hazard reduction by Australians.

In it’s concluding post, Google exhibited how since the start of Australian Bushfires in October 2019, search for climate change is four times the daily average for hazard reaction.
