Carbon emissions hit a new record

Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are now higher than at any time in the last 800,000 years, while the last decade in Australia was the warmest on record, CSIRO scientists say. Greenhouse gases have risen to their highest level since modern humans evolved.

Australia’s annual-average daily maximum temperatures have increased by 0.75 degrees Celsius since 1910. Australian temperatures are forecast to rise by between 1C and 5C by 2070 when compared with the climate of recent decades. Learn more here or here.
