1. ADAPTATION:

As Australia prepares for new weather extremes, political opposition mounts

Australia is no stranger to extremes. The country has long experienced extreme heat, prolonged drought and severe wildfires. It's about to get worse. In the coming decade and beyond, the nation should gird itself for even more extremes caused by climate change, say the authors of a new report from the country's Climate Commission, an independent body of experts appointed to report on what climate change will mean for the nation.

2. AVIATION:

Droughts, floods and severe storms fueled by climate change are expected to make life on Earth increasingly uncomfortable, but scientists now warn that rising temperatures could make the skies a rougher place, too. In the first-ever study on the future of aviation turbulence, researchers found that flights over the North Atlantic could get significantly bumpier if carbon dioxide concentrations double from preindustrial levels.
