UK scientists say the recent fires in Australia are a taste of what the world will experience as temperatures rise.
Prof Richard Betts from the Met Office Hadley Centre said we are “seeing a sign of what would be normal conditions under a future warming world of 3C”.
While natural weather patterns have driven recent fires, researchers said it’s “common sense” that human-induced heating is playing a role.
Last year was Australia’s warmest and driest year on record.
