The whole world is experiencing rapid climate change. Since the 1950s the average Australian temperatures risen by about 1°C This has resulted in more frequent heatwaves and a decrease in the numbers of frosts and cold days. Ver the last 50 years rainfall in the northwest of the continent has increased while much of eastern Australia and the far southwest have experienced a decline. Storms, dust clouds,floods, droughts are becoming commonplace.
