Note:

The poem ‘My Country’ published by Dorothea Mackellar in 1908 infamously described Australia as the ‘land of drought and flooding rains’. Since Mackellar penned her famous poem, Australia’s average temperature has increased by 1oC, with most warming occurring since 1950. Many Australians accept the concept of the nation’s weather as captured in this romantic poem, sometimes dismissing what we are experiencing now as just part of our natural climate cycles. However, in recent decades our country has been ravaged by an increased frequency and severity of extreme drought, flood and fires. As Australians we pride ourselves in our resilient spirit, but scientists now fear that the rate and severity of climate change may overwhelm our capacity to adapt to a rapidly warming world. This has started an important conversation in our society and governments to reflect on our understanding of climate change.
