Australian minister: Climate change report like “disaster novel”

A new report by Australia’s top scientists predicts that the country will be hit by a 10-fold increase in heatwaves and that droughts will almost double in frequency and become more widespread because of climate change.

To make things worse, New South Wales is suffering a plague of locusts, no joke. The government is planning what to do, can’t see how any of their options don’t involve wrenching change for Australia, but then climate change will be doing that anyway.
