A surfer carrying his board walks out of the ocean as a cloud is lit by the setting sun at Sydney's Manly Beach October 24, 2006. Climate change in Sydney will cause a significant rise in heat-related deaths of people over 65 years of age by 2050, as Australia's biggest city suffers more heat waves, bushfires and floods, a new environment report released on January 31, 2007 says. The report by Australia's premier scientific body, the Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), forecast heat-related deaths for elderly people would rise from the current 176 a year to 1,312 by 2050. Rising sea levels will result in coastal erosion of up to 22 metres (66 feet) for a strip of beaches from Collaroy to Narrabeen in Sydney's north, eating away at many multi-million dollar homes now perched on the edge of the beach. Australia is already feeling the brunt of global warming with the worst drought in 100 years eating into economic growth. The CSIRO report found Sydney's maximum temperature was expected to rise 1.6 degrees Celsius by 2030 and 4.8 degrees by 2070 and average rainfall will drop by 40 percent by 2070.
