Australia faces extreme weather rise, says leaked UN report

SYDNEY (AFP) – Australia will suffer more droughts, fires, floods and storms due to global warming and its famous Great Barrier Reef will be devastated by 2030, according to leaked extracts Friday of a UN report.


The draft UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report warns that temperatures in Australia would rise by 6.7 degrees Celsius before the end of the century, the ABC and Sydney Morning Herald reported.


The report, due to be released on April 6, said rising temperatures would cause more intense bushfires and lead to deaths from heatwaves.


It also predicted rising sea levels would push the coast back 110 metres (yards) in some Sydney beachside suburbs, swamping some of the city’s most exclusive real estate.
