A NEW REPORT by the Climate Council has found the severe drought gripping much of Australia has been exacerbated by climate change.
“Climate change is shifting our rainfall patterns and increasing the severity of droughts and floods. We’ve always been a sunburnt country, but things are getting worse,” said Climate Councillor, Professor Will Steffen.
The Climate Council’s report “Deluge and Drought: Australia’s Water Security in a Changing Climate” has been co-authored by seven climate change experts, including former head of the Bureau of Meteorology, Professor Rob Vertessy.
