Climate change and the Redlands

Climate change and the Redlands

Climate change will impact on the way we live and work in the Redlands.

Scientific evidence suggests we can expect our future climate to be hotter and drier with more frequent and severe drought. We will experience more intense rainfall events, associated flooding and increased intensity of storms and winds.

Combined with rising sea levels, these changes may result in more frequent and extreme storm tides, and greater potential for coastal flooding. This will impact on everyone in the Redlands.
