Australia’s climate extremes increasing as carbon dioxide levels continue to rise, report reveals – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Australia is getting wetter despite drought across much of the country, a climate report has revealed.

The CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology’s latest State of the Climate report is a snapshot of how Australia’s weather has changed over the last two years.

Average rainfall has increased in Australia since 1900, with above-average falls in Australia’s north offsetting a drop in annual rainfall in the south.

The report shows south-east Australia experienced a 15 per cent decline in late autumn and early winter rainfall since the mid-1990s.
