Scientists warn that the upcoming Australian bushfire season will be longer and more intense due to the effects of climate change.
Earlier, Australian authorities were worried about wildfires ahead of the hottest months to come. It is confirmed that 2017 and 2018 are the 3rd and 4th hottest years in Australian meteorological history.
Australia's climate report 2018 states that climate change has led to catastrophic heat waves as well as increased intensity of natural disasters, such as drought.
Even if global temperatures rise within 2 degrees Celsius of pre-industrial levels as reached by the 2015 Paris agreement, scientists believe Australia will still face more dangerous disasters.
