The east coast rain seems endless. Where on Earth is all the water coming from?
At any one time, Earth’s atmosphere holds only about a week’s worth of rain. But rainfall and floods have devastated Australia’s eastern regions for weeks and more heavy rain is forecast. So where’s all this water coming from?
‘One of the most extreme disasters in colonial Australian history’: climate scientists on the floods and our future risk: The Conversation
While the role of climate change is hard to pin down in Australia’s biggest floods, we know flooding often strikes our east coast. Building greater resilience to severe flooding would help lessen their impact.
Like rivers in the sky: the weather system bringing floods to Queensland will become more likely under climate change
Every little bit we do to limit carbon emissions might mean one less flood and one less person who has to rebuild.
2021 was one of the hottest years on record – and it could also be the coldest we’ll ever see again
Rapid decarbonisation is needed to reduce further warming of the planet. It’s not too late to avoid the most dangerous climate change impacts.
This WA town just topped 50℃ – a dangerous temperature many Australians will have to get used to
You may think Australians are good at surviving the heat. But the climate you were born in doesn’t exist any more. Sadly, our farms, wildlife, and suburbs will struggle to cope with the extreme heat projected for coming decades.
