Australia’s extreme summer weather

Graphic News

March 8, 2017 -- Australia has experienced a summer of intense heatwaves, bushfires and flooding, with more than 200 records broken over 90 days, according to a report by the independent Climate Council group.

According to a new report from Australia’s Climate Council, 89 locations endured record summer rainfall and 66 locations had record summer temperatures. “Even more extreme heat is on the way in future unless rapid and deep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are achieved around the world,” the report warned.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
