Australian Future Climate
                                                                 
www.climatechangeinaustralia.com.au/futureclimate.php

“Projections of Australia's future climate are available by selecting your region of interest on the map or menu to the right. Our future climate will depend on greenhouse gas emissions, so the regional projections are available for low, mid-range and high greenhouse gas emissions scenarios. These scenarios were developed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and are based on various assumptions about demographic, economic and technological factors likely to influence future emissions”

Skeptical Science: getting sceptical about global warming skepticism -online journal

http://www.skepticalscience.com/

“Scientific skepticism is healthy. Scientists should always challenge themselves to improve their understanding. Yet this isn't what happens with climate change denial. Skeptics vigorously criticise any evidence that supports man-made global warming and yet embrace any argument, op-ed, blog or study that purports to refute global warming. This website gets skeptical about global warming skepticism. Do their arguments have any scientific basis? What does the peer reviewed scientific literature say?”

 Climate Data Online

http://www.bom.gov.au/

“This rich resource is a Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) web page that provides data for rainfall, temperature, weather and climate and solar exposure recorded by weather stations around Australia. The user can access observations and statistics by entering a weather station number, or by using text or an interactive map to search for a particular station. Selecting a station displays daily or monthly data recorded by that station for the chosen year, with an option to view the statistics as graphs. There are links to About Climate Data Online, How to get data - FAQs, and Technical Help”
