Climate change to slash Australian farm exports
Australia is one of the world's biggest exporters of wheat, beef, sugar and dairy, with global demand for the commodities growing fast. But the country's agricultural production appears set to become one of the worst affected by climate change.

The report, released Thursday by the government's chief rural forecaster, the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics, predicts Australian farm exports will plummet during the first half of this century, with wheat down 15 percent, beef 33 percent, dairy 27 percent, and sugar 79 percent.

This is expected to coincide with a global drop of wheat, beef, sugar and dairy production of up to 11 percent by 2050.

"This is a wake-up call for everybody, that the economic costs of not dealing with climate change are far more than making the investment now," Burke told Sky News.

The problem had been compounded in part because of the previous conservative 11-year government's denial about climate change.

Other countries have been planning for climate change and are becoming more efficient. By 2030 Australia is looking at a 63 percent decline in our exports from agriculture.
