For many Australians, the Summer of 2021-22 is a little different. Instead of the dry, hot and bushfire-y conditions we often experience, most of the east of Australia is experiencing a wet and wild Summer, influenced by a La Niña event.
So, how do we explain that climate change is happening here and now when the summer is wetter than usual? It can be a challenge, but we can’t forget that the weather we experience day to day is happening in a warmer climate, due to burning fossil fuels.
We’ve produced a handy conversation guide to arm you with the facts when chatting about climate change this summer.
