Adelaide is the driest of the Australian capital cities and the past two decades have been far warmer than usual, with the past 8 years seeing an excess of 40+ degrees every summer. A spike in heat waves, droughts and record-breaking high temperatures over the past decade has led to some concerns over the effects of global warming and Man-made climate change (AGW) on the city. Nine of the ten warmest years recorded in Adelaide have occurred since 2002, with 2013 being the hottest year and summer 2015–2016 being the fourth-hottest summer recorded.
