Since moving house 18 months ago we have become very much aware of the changes in climate living here on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. This year we have experienced record breaking temperatures, the wettest month, the driest month on record and the longest spell without rain. As a result in the past six months we have installed skylights, solar panels and two air conditioners. I can only manage an air conditioner being on for a limited time as I get an sneezing allergy attack and stream from my eyes and nose. Never before have I had to sleep with a fan on in my bedroom but for the past three months I have needed a pedestal fan to enable the room to cool down. We have lived on the Coast for 40 years and have noticed huge changes since we moved here. You only have to look at what is happening elsewhere in Australia and even the World, with extreme weather happening that has never been recorded before.
