Is Australia's current drought caused by climate change? It's complicated
Much of southern Australia is experiencing severe drought after a very
dry and warm autumn across the southern half of the continent, writes
three Australian climate change researchers in The Conversation. But
are droughts getting worse, and can they be attributed to climate
change? "Drought is a complex beast and can be measured in a variety
of ways. Some aspects of drought are linked with climate change;
others are not." ... Compared with other extreme weather types, it is
hard to make useful statements these links, the researchers
add. "There is some evidence to suggest that climate change is
exacerbating drought conditions in parts of Australia, especially in
the southwest and southeast. Much more work is needed to understand
the intricacies of the effects of climate change on different aspects
and types of drought."
