The Climate in Australia

The temperature in Australia can be very hot (50 degrees °C; 122 °F) or go well under 0 degrees °C; 32 °F. But with the global warming the air temperature rises to 0,7 °C; 33.26 °F minimum. There are also some droughts in Australia and the crops are growing dry, as you can see in this field.


And when the climate is too dry there may be fires in forests or dry fields.

The Australian territory is very affected by storms and hurricanes. The 2009 sandstorm is the most important to this day.

The climate in Australia triggers a lot of fires in forests and fields. On the other hand there have been torrential rains and floods throughout this January in Queensland.  Snakes and crocodiles are back in towns and are spreading terror.  It is a catastrophe and a few people have died, are missing or injured. The water - which is now dirty - has travelled to the Great Barrier Reef and might destroy it.
