ABSTRACT
Outlines efforts to predict the effects of global warming on extreme weather events, such as Category 5 cyclones and superstorms in Australia. Effects of the doubling of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere on the habitat and food supplies of the country's rainforest marsupials; Cause of the lag effect in the global climate system; Variation in climate patterns even after greenhouse gases stabilize.
