Researchers from NASA said the smoke has led to an unusually large number of pyrocumulonimbus (pyrCbs) events, or fire-induced thunderstorms, to form in the skies. He has softened his stance on climate change but still defends his country's coal industry, arguing Australia pales in comparison to the likes of China.
These were the details of the news "No doubt" climate change causing wildfires, experts say as Australia burns for this day.
"All 57 papers show links between climate change and increased frequency or severity of fire weather", Matthew Jones, senior research associate at the Tyndell Centre for Climate Research at the University of East Anglia, said.
Nasa said it was now testing the smoke shot out from Australia to discover the effects of the plumes at such altitude and whether it provided "a net atmospheric cooling or warming".
The agency is now studying the global effects of these storms, including their impact on temperatures.
"Overall, our review finds that climate change increases the frequency and severity of fire weather globally and thus increases the risk of fire occurring". More pictures from Parmitano showed the dust streaming over the ocean near Australia.
An overview of 57 publications since 2013 suggests a clear and frightening connection between man-made climate change and vulnerability to forest fires.
Heavy smoke over Melbourne on Tuesday caused disruptions at the Australian Open, a darling of the country's sporting events, as organisers faced a storm of criticism for going ahead with matches.
Ms Andrews said she was confident Energy Minister Angus Taylor would deliver the policies needed to meet the emissions targets.

"I think we need to be addressing the real issues about how we mitigate against climate change and how we build resilience into our community and we have to get on with the job of making sure we address the very real issue before us", she told the ABC.
They said rising global temperatures, more frequent heatwaves, and related droughts may increase the likelihood of wildfires in some regions by creating hot and dry conditions. On the contrary, burnt regions have increased in closed-canopy forests, probably in reaction to the double pressures of forest degradation and climate change.
According to a new report from Atmosphere Monitoring Service, Australia's fires have pumped out 400 million metric tons of carbon dioxide, more than the total combined annual emissions of the 116 lowest-emitting countries, and nine times the amount produced during California's record-setting 2018 fire season.
Almost 100 Canadian firefighters and experts have been sent to Australia to help battle the fires since they began raging in September.
"Limiting global warming to well below 2°C would help avoid further increases in the risk of extreme fire weather".
Observational information demonstrates that fire weather seasons have extended across nearly 25% of the vegetated surface of the Earth, leading to an increase of about 20% in the global mean length of the fire weather season.
At the global scale, burned area has decreased in recent decades, largely due to clearing of savannahs for agriculture and increased fire suppression.
