Sky News reports: The nation’s annual climate report says while 2006 was one of the driest years on record for the south and east, the sparsely populated north had a bumper wet season.
2006 was the eleventh warmest year since 1910. This isn’t the only dramatic weather we’ve seen in recent times. A firestorm, the longest drought in history, a metre of hail in summer, uneven rainfall, Antarctica icebergs broke off and headed for New Zealand and monster bushfires.
If you’ve been dismissive of Climate Change, have a think about your local weather.
Update: Associated Press reports that 2007 may be the warmest year on record
