Droughts today, floods and cyclones tomorrow. Are you wondering what is driving our crazy weather? Hear local and internationally recognised climate science experts explain recent events and how they fit into a broader climate context. Find out how the extremes we are experiencing in Australia compare to our historic record and the rest of the world, and how we are changing the way we predict climate and weather. This session will answer all your questions.

Following presentations by each of the three speakers there will be an open forum where questions can be asked to a panel. The above information can also be found here: http://www.riaus.org.au/events/2011/04/19/from_droughts_to_flooding_rains.jsp
