What's the fuss about climate change?

Human induced climate change is defined by many as the greatest global risk that potentially threatens our economic, social and environmental security. Australia is recognised as a hotspot for climate change risk and faces warmer summers; warmer winters; increased extreme weather events; water scarcity; loss of marine biodiversity (especially on the Great Barrier Reef); sea level rises; increased disease outbreaks (including Dengue Virus); and increased travel cost increases affecting longer-haul markets.
