based Climate Institute raised in his letter to the committee that is reviewing Australia's future in research and innovation is that "the primary Southern Hemisphere storm track that brings precipitation to the agricultural areas of southern Australia is shifting poleward as global warming leads to a general expansion of the subtropics.
When El Nino happens in the winter, warm water along the equator pulls the Pacific subtropical jet stream, which is blowing eastward from Japan, and pulls it southward towards the warm water and equator, and when the jet stream is pulled southward, it pulls the winter storm track for frontal storms coming off the Pacific Ocean southward with it," Gutzler explains.
