“One of the most powerful features of the CSIRO’s and Bureau of Meteorology’s climate change projections was their use of ‘climate analogues’ to help explain what future climate change might be like relative to other places in Australia… under high emissions, Melbourne’s future climate will match the current climate of Dubbo in western New South Wales, or that of Gawler, 40 kilometres north of Adelaide, by the end of the century. Sydney will take on the subtropical climate of Brisbane, and Hobart will transition to the aridity of today’s Adelaide. By the end of the century, Darwin will not resemble any part of modern-day Australia; entirely new climate conditions will have formed.”
Gergis, Sunburnt Country…, MUP, 2018, p. 225
