Climate Change Consultancy Services
Australia is subject to significant climate variability. Recent physical changes in climate attributed to anthropogenic global warming include increased variability of rainfall, increased temperatures and rising sea levels. Storms are likely to become more severe and in some parts, drought and other extreme events will be more likely. Climate change affects many natural and social systems, including biodiversity, farming practices, water supply, stormwater, wastewater disposal, infrastructure and communities. Our everyday wellbeing will be affected by the changing incidence of diseases and altered weather
patterns, as well as increased threats from natural hazards like flooding and extreme heat. Managing the causes of climate change is becoming imperative as national governments move towards emission trading schemes. The practical means by which emissions may be managed and reduced are of interest to a wide range of sectors. The associated benefits of reduced energy costs and more sustainable activities are also important.
