Meltdown Earth: the shocking reality of climate change kicks in – but who is listening?
And another one bites the dust. The year 2014 was the warmest ever recorded by humans. Then 2015 was warmer still. January 2016 broke the record for the largest monthly temperature anomaly. Then came last month. [?]
'True shocker': February spike in global temperatures stuns scientists
AEGIC: New Australian climate developing
A new climate is emerging in Australia, according to new maps released by the Australian Export Grains Innovation Centre (AEGIC). AEGIC analysed data from more than 8000 Bureau of Meteorology stations around the country and discovered that traditional rainfall zones have changed significantly since 2000. [?]
Australia Cuts 110 Climate Scientist Jobs - Scientific American
With an ax rather than a scalpel, Australia’s federal science agency last week chopped off its climate research arm in a decision that has stunned scientists and left employees dispirited. [?]
'Misleading, inaccurate and in breach of Paris': CSIRO scientist criticises cuts
Australia will break a commitment made at the Paris climate summit less than two months ago if CSIRO goes ahead with its plan to axe its research programs, one of the agency's leading scientists has warned. [?]
Climate science to be gutted as CSIRO swings jobs axe
Fears that some of Australia's most important climate research institutions will be gutted under a Turnbull government have been realised with deep job cuts for scientists. Fairfax Media has learnt that as many as 110 positions in the Oceans and Atmosphere division will go, with a similarly sharp reduction in the Land and Water division. It's a catastrophic reduction in our capacity to assess present and future climate change  [?]
Australian emissions rising towards historical highs and will not peak before 2030, analysis finds
Australia's national greenhouse gas emissions are set to keep rising well beyond 2020 on current trends, with the projected growth rate one of the worst in the developed world, a new analysis has found. An assessment of recent government emissions data, carried out by the carbon consultancy firm RepuTex, says that in the 2014-15 financial year Australia's carbon pollution rose for the first time in almost a decade when compared to the previous year.

A Lake in Bolivia Evaporates, and With It a Way of Life - The New York Times
UNTAVI, Bolivia — Overturned fishing skiffs lie abandoned on the shores of what was Bolivia’s second-largest lake. Beetles dine on bird carcasses and gulls fight for scraps under a glaring sun in what marshes remain. Lake Poopó (pronounced po-oh-PO) was officially declared evaporated last month. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people have lost their livelihoods and have left the area. [?]
El Niño inspires hope of 'major dent' in drought, but empty reservoirs point to long recovery - LA Times
er since climate experts first predicted El Niño last year, California officials have been tamping down expectations that this winter’s rains would bring significant drought relief. Four years of drought have just been too severe, they said, and it was uncertain that the rains would fall where they were needed most: in the northern mountains and valleys where California’s water systems begin. [?]
El Nino: The weather of 2015 captured in one image
There were many photographs that encapsulated the past year of weather extremes of fierce heatwaves, dangerous floods and wild winds but perhaps the most telling is a computer-coloured satellite image from space. A grandly named US/European Ocean Surface Topography Mission - thankfully shortened to Jason-2 - captured the imagery of the engine that has been driving the planet's weather this past year. And the driving doesn't stop at midnight, New Year's Eve. [?]
