Climate change to cause twice as many severe floods in Australia

From no less a source than The Strine, for Rupert to print, it must be true! “CSIRO scientists probed the future with 21 global climate models skilful at simulating extreme La Nina periods in the historical record. The work formed part of the big international science program, the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 5…compared frequency of severe La Nina episodes between 1900 and 1999 with model projections for frequency in greenhouse world between 2000 and 2099…overall frequency of La Nina phases would remain at current level of about one in every two to seven years over rest of century but rate of extreme episodes would rise dramatically.” Future cost of recovery, after extreme weather events, is looking very expensive. Time for ledger item in Federal Budget, to know how much is spent on recovery, especially to compare with budget to reduce emissions.
