How Will Climate Change Impact Football In Australia?
Now sure how climate change will impact the sports you love? Well, you might be surprised to know that the impact of extreme weather events, rising temperatures, heatwaves, drought, floods, and even bushfire smoke, will worsen the impact on the sports we love as our climate crisis escalates. For example, the AFLP4CA noted the number of trainings relocated due to bushfire smoke, and the number of regional clubs facing closure due to flood and fire-prone areas.
“You don’t have to look far to see the devastation climate change is having on Australians, and our sport, including the impacts of extreme weather events,” said Tom Campbell. “I’m not a scientist, but I listen to the climate experts and they’re telling us we need to act now to tackle global warming.”
