Birdsville Case Study

Summer in Australia’s most isolated town, Birdsville, can be brutal. Temperatures top 49°C and this means rubber soles can melt on the pavement, car wipers stick to windscreens and make-up melts from women’s faces.

In the summer of 2013, 29 consecutive days were 40°C or more in Birdsville and Australian weathermen were forced to invent a new colour for temperature charts as the heat was predicted to break record temperatures.
