Australian heatwave linked to climate change?

With temperatures in Sydney currently reaching record highs of almost 46c, a major debate is running about why this is happening and if it is now part of the pattern of extreme weather associated with climate change.

Australians are used to extremes but research suggests that the number of extreme weather events and the range of temperatures that certain areas of this vast country might experience are likely to seriously change in the future as a result of climate change.

Have selected a few articles that might stimulate thought and debate on this topical issue:—IPCC/tabid/1160/articleID/283424/Default.aspx

Interesting  that this warning article was written in January 2007 – six years on maybe the climate skeptics might change their minds?

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
