Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that climate change did not contribute to the bushfires in Australia. Climate change did play a role in making the fires more extreme. It should be noted that the source of ignition for each fire is not relevant to understanding whether climate change contributed to their magnitude.

The current fires in Australia are not so extreme because fires were sparked, but because 2019 was the hottest and driest year on record, with dry and windy weather patterns in place as the fires burned.
We have therefore updated the headline and retracted the original story.
