Drought conditions have been officially declared in over 16% of New South Wales and nearly 58% of Queensland, with climate change contributing to extreme weather events, including record temperatures and low rainfall, hitting the Australian agriculture sector hard.
This report shows how the Great Barrier Reef could be hit with repeat coral bleaching events every two years by 2034, under current greenhouse gas pollution rates.
As the climate warms, the number of extreme temperature days is increasing. While Roma is known for its warm weather and hot days, the average number of over 35 and over 40 degree days has increased considerably in recent years and is forecast to increase...
Increasing extreme heat will have profound impacts on people, industries and ecosystems in Western Sydney. CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology projections estimate that the average number of days over 35 could increase by up to five times without strong climate policies from a historical average...
Dr Colin Tukuitonga speaks about how climate change is affecting the health of people living in Pacifc Island countries and the relevance of Australia’s climate change policy responses to these neighbouring countries.
The report finds that limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require “rapid and far-reaching” transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport and cities.
This report provides a brief summary of the main findings of the special report, Global Warming of 1.5°C , its implications, and how Australia is tracking when it comes to tackling climate change.
Heat-related mortality tends to be associated with heatwaves that do not allow for sufficient acclimatisation to hot temperatures. In contrast, damage functions and most heatwave emergency response plans do not account for acclimatisation. Using an excess heat measure that accounts for acclimatisation, this paper produces...
