Australian towns among hottest spots on Earth as heatwave sizzles

The past four days were among the country's top 10 warmest on record, with temperatures nearing 50 degrees Celsius in some spots. High temperatures are not unusual in Australia during its arid southern hemisphere summer, with bushfires a common occurrence. But climate change has pushed up land and sea temperatures and led to more extremely hot days and severe fire seasons.

Oceans warming much faster than previously thought: Study

Ocean heating is a critical marker of climate change because an estimated 93% of the excess solar energy trapped by greenhouse gases accumulates in the world's oceans. Trends in ocean heat content match those predicted by leading climate change models, overall warming is accelerating. Warmer oceans contribute to stronger storms, hurricanes and extreme precipitation.

Drought-hit Australia has third-warmest year on record in 2018
