A heated debate is expected to take place on the issue among councillors during this week's council meeting scheduled for Thursday. Adelaide City Councillor Anne Moran is tipped to clash on the matter with the Deputy Lord Mayor Arman Abrahimzahdeh, both of whom sit on the board of the Australia Day Council.

Coronavirus Precautions Ramped Up in Australia

But there have been no confirmed cases of the virus in Australia as authorities ramp up precautions. A Brisbane man being tested for the virus was released from isolation on Tuesday. He shows no ongoing symptoms and test results are expected in coming days, Queensland Health said. Biosecurity measures have been ramped up for flights into the country from China, and the city of Wuhan in particular. The sprawling capital of central China’s Hubei province is the epicentre of the coronavirus, which is said to have started in animals before spreading to humans.

However, no one argued for any substantial policy change that strayed from the Coalition’s election commitments, with senior members of the Coalition unified around the government’s emissions reduction targets of 26% to 28% of 2005 levels by 2030. He also flagged the possibility of new national standards that would report on how states were tracking on hazard reduction performance. Scientists hate to say 'I told you so'.

Scientists hate to say 'I told you so'. But Australia, you were warned

Australian scientists warned the country could face a climate change-driven bushfire crisis by 2020. It arrived on schedule. For several decades, the world’s scientific community has periodically assessed climate science, including the risks of a rapidly changing climate. Australian scientists have made, and continue to make, significant contributions to this global effort. I am an Earth System scientist, and for 30 years have studied how humans are changing the way our planet functions.

The more we learn, the worse it gets How serious might future risks actually be?
