Latest analysis from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology shows Australia has experienced the warmest decade since records started in 1910 reaffirms the solid evidence on climate change and a warming planet.
From the noughties to hot and wild - the world is just getting hotter.
The latest analysis from the Bureau of Meteorology, showing Australia has experienced the warmest decade since records started in 1910, reaffirms the solid evidence on climate change and a warming planet, and the political game playing and delays that overshadows the reason for action on climate change needs to stop, says Prof. Ray Wills, Chief Executive of the Western Australian Sustainable Energy Association Inc. (WA SEA), and Adjunct Professor with The University of Western Australia.
‘Global temperatures are rising - its been measured, it is a fact. Science has established that the cause of rising global temperatures is human-induced climate change.'
The inconvenient truth is now an undeniable truth.
‘'Strong and immediate action is required to stop the growth in world emissions and rapidly start the process of reducing emissions to a scientifically established level. Science tells us that we must quickly bring atmospheric CO2 concentrations back below 350 ppm if we are to avoid dangerous climate change,' says Prof Wills.
‘Fixing climate change and acting on greenhouse gas emissions fuelling the increasing pace of global warming is essential for the health of the planet, the welfare of the community, and in the best interests of the world economy,' says Prof Wills.
‘In other words, climate change is real, the impacts are already proving dire and will only get worse, humans are causing it, and we need to stop,' says Prof Wills.
