What on Earth is an Angry Summer?

Hi Inga 

More than 156 extreme weather records have been broken across Australia this summer. Extraordinary heatwaves and hot days, drought and rainfall deficiency, and bushfires have dominated.

This comes on the heels of last summer which broke 123 extreme weather records.

While we’ve always experienced some extreme weather in Australia, climate change is increasing the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events. 

Today I’m in Adelaide – a city that has really suffered these extremes – to launch the Climate Council’s latest report The Angry Summer.

This info-graphic gives you a snapshot of just how intense the summer has been.

Avoiding more frequent Angry Summers requires urgent and deep reductions in the emissions of greenhouse gases. The decisions we make this decade will largely determine the severity of climate change and its influence on extreme events for our grandchildren.

This is the critical decade.

Our community-funded reports give people the accurate & independent climate information they need to make decisions and take action.

Today I will be talking to the media – getting this information out as far and wide as I can. Please take a moment to help me do this by sharing this information with your networks.

Thank you for your support.

Tim Flannery,
Chief Councillor
