Extreme weather set to get worse

2011 – 220 scientists – experts in the field of global climate – conclude that extreme weather is increasing – heatwaves to become more damaging – intense rainfall to become…well….more intense.

Not good news for Australia – especially considering that the ‘Black Saturday’ bushfires were estimated to cost $4.4 billion and the 2011/2012 Queensland floods were estimated to cost $5 billion. And we can’t forget about all the lives that were lost because of these events.

So brace yourself Australia. The next century appears to be a royal pain in our backsides –  and we really only have ourselves to blame.
