Climate change and Australia

Lesley Head, Michael Adams, Helen V. McGregor, Stephanie Toole
2013 Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Climate Change  
Australia has had a variable and mostly arid climate as long as humans have been on the continent.  ...  However as in other parts of the world this change has come too late, and is proceeding too slowly, to avoid significant climate change.  ...  In the first 3 months of operation of the carbon price, hydro electricity generation increased and coalfired generation decreased, 67 and this pattern had continued after 1 year. 68 The government  ...
