Morning Mail: Climate Crisis, Vaccine Mandates Discarded, A Poetic Month |

GRAMGood Morning. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has released a landmark report and it is a “wake-up call to the world.” Drastic action is desperately needed to avoid a global climate catastrophe. We have the details of the report, and much more in today’s Morning Mail.

Human activity is changing Earth’s climate in “unprecedented” ways, and some of the changes are now inevitable and “irreversible.”. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned in its landmark report released Monday that only rapid and drastic reductions in greenhouse gases in this decade can prevent widespread devastation and extreme weather. In the next two decades, Temperatures are likely to rise more than 1.5 ° C above pre-industrial levels, which would be “catastrophic” for Pacific island nations. and it could lead to the loss of entire countries due to rising sea levels.

But what does the IPCC assessment mean for Australia? Australia’s land surface has warmed by around 1.4 ° C in 110 years, and now there are more extreme heat incidents and less extreme cold, and those trends appear to continue. There would be an increase in coastal flooding and the coastline would retreat, in addition to changes in rainfall across the country. But Australian scientists have stressed that “it is not too late” to take action to stem the worst of the climate crisis. and called on the leaders to “wake up.” Dr Pep Canadell, who worked on the report, said humans “were still in the cockpit of the planet and the climate system.” The chairman of the upcoming UN climate talks, Alok Sharma, echoed the statement, calling on the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitters to come up with clear plans to drastically reduce their carbon production.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has scrapped vaccine mandates for industries outside of the elderly care workforce and quarantine workers. Announcing that the federal drug regulator had approved the Moderna vaccine, Morrison also implored “angry” and “frustrated” Australians to stay the course during the current lockdowns. The government has secured 25 million doses of Moderna’s mRNA vaccine, which will begin shipping next month. Monday, NSW recorded 283 new local cases, while the state lockdown extended to Byron Bay and Tamworth amid concerns that travelers had spread the virus from Sydney.

The Australian government has been accused of double standards after it sent more than 11,000 people Centrelink debt letters totaling $ 32 million. claiming they were overpaid due to the employment manager, while resisting calls to recoup the money from the companies that got the wage subsidy and then made a profit. “It is ridiculous that the government is going after individuals for so-called debts for what will be genuine mistakes in a confused system when they have given millions to billionaires,” said Green Senator Rachel Siewert.

Sky News Australia has quietly removed over 30 videos promoting untested Covid treatments, while the station prepares to face the investigation on the diversity of the media.

The family of the missing Aboriginal Gordon Copeland is calling on New South Wales police to “speed up the search” for the 22-year-old., who was last seen by police allegedly running into the Gwydir River in New South Wales.

The Australian elderly care industry faces a shortage of 110,000 workers in the next decade Unless urgent action is taken, including increasing wages and conditions, a committee of experts has found.

Josh Frydenberg’s office was involved in drafting a consultation document to make sure it linked the CEOs to the issue of mandatory retirement., a key battlefield in the political war for retirement savings, internal Treasury documents show.

Australia risks “eroding” its reputation among international students if you don’t develop a deadline for a phased and safe return from Covid to studies on campus, a senior diplomat said.

A liberal-dominated parliamentary committee has called for changes to be made to make it easier for skilled migrants to stay in Australia. as the pandemic has created a major skills shortage.

“How many climate warnings does Australia need?” writes Adam Morton. “Without ever deviating from politics, the latest [IPCC] The report illustrates the wide gulf between what it qualifies as climate policy and debate in Australia and what is required to tackle the problem. The Morrison administration’s response to criticism of its climate performance is to list what it says is evidence of action where there is almost none. “
