Big Book 2: Climate A Big Book Climate Change: Learning about what is happening with the weather in central Australia is also now complete and available online. The book has been written especially for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and others to explain climate change. It encourages people in communities to talk about climate change, and what will assist them to deal with these changes in the weather. The book was produced as part of a CSIRO project with Central Land Council Ltyentye Apurte Rangers and elders. The CSIRO scientists talked with rangers and elders about what scientists think is happening with the weather and what they think is causing these changes. Ltyentye Apurte elders, rangers and others told the scientists some of what they know about the weather and some of the changes they have seen. The book acknowledges that Aboriginal people have their own concepts and terms to describe the weather, which dont always fit with western views. It therefore presents the seasonal divisions according to the Arrernte weather calendar, although other traditional seasons and calendars could also be used. The book can be found here.
