Yup. It just took a sensible government to change course:

Under Albanese's centre-left government, the country has vowed to cut carbon emissions by 43 percent before 2030, when compared to 2005 levels.

I'm confused by this story. Is it because of El Nino or Climate change? Weren't the past three years the "new normal?" Did the "climate emergency" cause the highest temperature on record for December 6th in 1886 or was that COVID?

The overall heating of the planet, i.e. climate change, is making the extremes of the normal El Nino cycle that much more extreme.
