Australia hotting up

AUSTRALIA experienced its fifth 
hottest year on record last year, with 
temperatures 0.46 degrees above average. 
But the National Climate 
Centre at the Bureau 
of Meteorology in Mel-
bourne said the rise
was not uniform over 
the country, as south-
eastern Australia was 
cooler than normal for 
much of the year.
