INTRODUCTIONFrom the past century, one of the biggest problem that world is facing is climate change.Global warming, deforestation, shrinking ice bergs, depleting ozone layers are some of thebiggest concern of environment scientists throughout the world (Garnaut, 2011). This reporthighlights the climate change in Australia and its impact on the lives of people.Climate changeIt is a change in the statical distribution of weather patterns when that change last forconsiderable period of time. It is also referred to as average weather conditions change. It occursdue to several reasons like variations in solar radiation received by earth, volcanic eruptions,biotic processes and plate tectonics. From the age of industrialisation man is also responsible forthe climate changes. Global warming is one of the prime concerns of past few decades.In Australia climate change has shown a considerable impact. Scientists have noted thatthe average temperature that raised in last 100 years from 1910 to 2010 is approx 1 degreeCelsius. It may not seem to be very high but it is highly dangerous for lives to sustain (Hanna,and et. al. 2011). Weather patterns have made changes which are resulting in heavy rainfalls,droughts, tornados or hurricanes etc. Australia is facing huge climate change especially in termsof average temperature. It has large part of its mainland in the form of dessert.Changing weather patterns in AustraliaChanging weather patterns in Australia has resulted in one of the greatest droughts of alltime and it is closely linked with major swings in the Southern Oscillation Index. SQI madedrought in eastern Australia. Change in the El Nino phase and cycle have made rains to beuneven in the country. Sea winds have made new paths to reach mainland which has resulted indifferent cyclonic patterns and predicting rainfalls and cloud densities have become difficulteven after so much investment on weather satellites. El Nino which is responsible for rainfalls inthe pacific regions is taking new shape in terms of patterns in which it was making rainfall indifferent regions of Australia (Climate change in Australia. 2017).1
