ADELAIDE has sweltered through its hottest year since records began 120 years ago, in a sign that meteorologists say shows climate change is already here.
The Bureau of Meteorology yesterday released its annual climate statement for 2007, showing South Australia also had its hottest year on record and Australia had its sixth-warmest year.
Adelaide's annual mean temperature was 0.3C above its previous maximum of 18.1C, set in 1914, and the hottest since records were first kept, in 1887.
