Low carbon choices such as solar power are essential for the African continent, if it intends to stop the harmful global warming effects.
For the sake of mitigating climate change, the African continent needs to make low carbon energy choices.
Good climate models can predict and help us respond to weather events.
Climate and weather models have come far in recent decades, and Australia has one of the best.
Climate models show Sydney could get drier or wetter. Which scenario do we choose when making decisions?
Depending on what model you use, climate change could make Sydney a little bit warmer, much hotter, wetter, or drier. Which one should we use? When it comes to planning for climate change, it’s important to look at all the possible futures.
Under a high emissions scenario, Melbourne’s climate could end up more like Dubbo’s in New South Wales.
