The office’s annual climate statement released on Wednesday revealed 2017 was Australia’s third-hottest year on record, with the annual national mean temperature 0.95C above the average. The office said background warming associated with climate change had seen Australian annual mean temperatures increase by about 1.1C since 1910, and most of that warming had occurred since 1950. Australia is above average temperatures at the same time with what the office called an “exceptionally warm” year globally, part of a continuing trend. In Australia, it is usual that there are wildfires and now there have been many wildfire warnings because of the extreme warmth.

They say that this is a perfect example of showing that climate change is getting worse every year since 30 years ago, these horrifying floods and the extremely warm weather did not happen. There were many factors that made this happened like natural seasonal patterns and ocean cycles, but climate change made the flooding and the hot temperature so much worse.
