Contributing to climate change solutions

Evidence of climate change has become increasingly hard to ignore throughout Australia. 2019 was by far the hottest year on record (1.52oC above the 1961-1990 baseline), with the hottest summer (2.14oC above), hottest December (3.21oC above) and the hottest day (41.9oC) to name just a few of the records broken. We have just experienced extraordinary and unprecedented fires all over the country with tragic consequences.
