Climate change in Australia: website and report

The Climate change in Australia website was developed by Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) in partnership with the Australian Greenhouse Office through the Australian Climate Change Science Program.

Climate change in Australia is based upon international climate change research including conclusions from the IPCC's fourth assessment report. It also builds on a large body of climate research that has been undertaken for the Australian region in recent years.
Climate change in Australia
provides essential tools for government, industry and the community to understand the likely magnitude of climate change in Australia and the possible impacts.

The Climate Change in Australia report is available for download from the Technical Report page of their website.

If you are short on time, I would suggest you at least check out the Summary brochure of the Climate change in Australia Report.

Well worth a read!
