I plan to undertake studies in the U. Brisbane Ballet's inaugural performance comprised of three stand-alone works that represent the role of entropy in the universe.
Entropy is the process of how objects descend from order into disorder. It is extremely likely that the dominant cause of recent warming is human-induced greenhouse gas emissions and not natural climate variability. One study has found that the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere had increased by as much as a factor of five the chances of Australia experiencing a record breaking heatwaves like that of summer The report points to the likely range of warming the country will experience as global emissions continue to rise.
Even under the most optimistic scenario for emissions, Australia will likely be between 1C and 2.
Higher emissions could see Australia on average almost 6C hotter than Dorothea Mackellar's already sunburnt country. The report concludes:. Atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations continue to rise and continued emissions will cause further warming over this century. Limiting the magnitude of future climate change requires large and sustained net global reductions in greenhouse gases.

As a victim, the impacts are being seen in the flames of bushfires, in the ever hotter days and warmer nights and in the warming oceans. As a contributor, the country continues to plough ahead with massive expansion plans for coal and gas exports while taking a leading role in per capita emissions. Prime Minister Abbott surrounds himself with climate science deniers who think the science is a "delusion" or a cover story for creeping socialism. Mackellar's verse was once a stand-alone definition of Australia, but not any more.
Too much has changed.
