When is an 'emergency' really an emergency?

Australian National University Vice-Chancellor, Brian Schmidt (pictured), has told a Netherlands climate summit that countries had put their faith science to counter the Covid-19 crisis and needed to do the same in their efforts to address the climate emergency.

Meanwhile, an ABC story from mid-January has warned that parts of Sydney could, with decades, be too warm for human habitation.

And RMIT associate professor, Wendy Steele, who last year published "Planning Wild Cities" has said: "We are a world racing towards a crisis of our own making: that there is no precedent in history; and that rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes are required in all aspects of society, We must act now with everything we have at our disposal."
