Why is Australia in Drought



  1. 0 Votes

The two rivers that provide water to the Murray-Darlin basin where forty percent of Australia’s produce is grown are at record lows, and a lack of rainfall has worsened the situation. A severe El Niño weather pattern—made more intense by climate change—has kept rains from falling on the region. The article cited below is a little out of date, being from 2007, but has some good information on the drought.
