I’ve had a great summer, but my lawn is still a mess and my neighbours are still telling me to do something about it.
I have absolutely no idea what it is that I’m supposed to do.
And it’s really, really hard to know.
The Australian Capital Territory government’s latest research shows the climate is expected to be warmer than average by mid-century.
Climate scientists say we’ll be warmer and drier than we’ve been in more than 50 years.
Melbourne’s heatwave and the subsequent drought were a clear example of the effects climate change is having on our lives.
More than a third of the nation’s houses will be more than 10 degrees centigrade (35C) hotter by 2075, and the city’s water table will rise by more than 25cm by 2080.
My wife and I have been trying to make our home more livable by installing insulation in our house, and we’ve also installed a heat sink to the kitchen, to cool the fridge and to prevent overheating.
However, we still have to make sure we have a well-ventilated house.
When it comes to climate change, there are two main types of research.
Some studies are about how climate change will affect the world’s weather patterns.
There are other studies that look at how climate will affect our health.
A new study published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, looked at the health effects of climate change.
It looked at a total of 9 million people in Australia.
In Australia, a number of different factors are correlated with people being more vulnerable to heatwaves, such as higher rates of obesity and higher rates with diabetes and heart disease.
This is because our climate also affects the way we live.
Heatwaves are more common in hot countries such as the US and Australia, which is why the research found that people living in areas with a lot of heatwaves were more likely to develop diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
If the heatwaves continue, the study says they could cause more than $8 billion in lost productivity annually.
Researchers from the University of New South Wales and the University in the UK said they wanted to know if climate change could affect our healthcare system, and what might be done to help our health and wellbeing.
Dr Sarah Loughlin, one of the lead researchers on the study, said the research showed climate change had the potential to have profound impacts on the health of Australian and global populations.
“We know that when climate change becomes more severe, our populations will face challenges,” she said.
“[But] what’s surprising is that we don’t have any information on how we might be able to adapt to climate changes.”
Dr Loughline said the study’s findings could help inform the research into how climate and the environment could impact health.
“If we want to understand the consequences of climate changes on our health, we need to know how people can prepare for and cope with the impacts of climate events,” she explained.
She said there were many aspects of healthcare systems that had not been considered in this way before, but they needed to be addressed.
“It’s important that we know the impacts climate change has on health in order to develop the appropriate response,” she added.
Australian health experts have called for urgent action to be taken to help people cope with warming temperatures.
According to the Australian Medical Association, about 25 per cent of people suffer from COVID-19, which means they’ve had symptoms for more than five weeks and the infection has spread.
People who are diagnosed with COVID infections are often left with a chronic condition, and have a lower chance of recovery.
