Australia Threatened by Climate Change Outlook

BROKEN HILL, AUSTRALIA - OCTOBER 25: A file photo shows Pineview Station owner Mark Lacey repairing one of his broken windmills on October 25, 2002 in Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia. An Australian Federal Government report has found that Australian coastal cities and tourist destinations are facing a much higher risk of the destructive effect of climate change resulting in severe storms. The report concludes that likely scenarios include the Australian continent warming by between 1 and 6 degrees by 2070, more droughts which could cut farm output by billions of dollars, tourism suffering from damage to reefs, rainforests and beaches and an increased risk of more tropical cyclones, and longer growing seasons, fewer frosts and higher rainfall in some areas which could help some agribusinesses but adversely affect others from less rainfall.
