Does anyone have a good name for the 2017-2019 #Drought in SE Australia? We’ve had the Federation Drought, the WWII Drought, the Millennium Drought .. what can we call the Late-Teens Drought? @TERN_Aus @ClimateExtremes ?

In March our Centre Spotlight featured @Griffith_Uni’s Environmental Futures Research Institute & research that’s developing solutions to facilitate clean, resilient and sustainable futures, & improved #health & wellbeing of people: https://www.tern.org.au/centre-spotlight-environmental-futures-research-institute/

ICYMI, ‘Australia’s Environment in 2019’ report & website was released Monday. 🌿💧🔥📈
Unfortunately, at a time when we crave positive news, the report makes for grim reading: a story of extreme #drought, heat & damage to our natural capital: https://www.tern.org.au/australias-environment-in-2019/
