Australia Records Hottest Year in 2005

Australia had its hottest year on record in 2005, with meteorologists saying the rising temperatures were due to global warming. Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology said temperatures were on average 1.09°C higher than normal in 2005, making it the hottest year since records were first kept in 1910. Meteorologist Mike Coughlan said previous record hot years in 1988, 1998 and 2002 were caused by El Nino events, where warmer waters in the South West Pacific lead to lower rainfall and hotter weather in Australia. But there was no El Nino in 2005
