Currently in Melbourne — September 15th, 2022
Partly cloudy with a chance of showers.

The weather, currently.

I hope you enjoyed Wednesday’s unbridled sunshine because the next few days will be powered by a large and slow-moving low-pressure system that will bring waves of wet weather, the first band of which arrived overnight. Rain will ease this morning leaving us with a partly cloudy day with a low of 12°C and a high of 18°C by the early afternoon. North to north-easterly winds of 20 to 30 km/h will taper off in the evening, with the chance of showers returning. And those showers are set to come and go for the next few days. The garden will love it!

Managing Editor Zaria Howell has a handy breakdown on the Biden administration's Inflation Reduction Ad up on our website today:

"On August 16, the Biden Administration passed the largest, and most comprehensive, largely climate-oriented bill into law.

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), mandates that roughly $370 billion dollars be put towards subsidizing clean energy and reducing healthcare costs — two things that impact each and every American.

Medicare beneficiaries with diabetes can look forward to their monthly insulin supply being capped at $35. Households who can afford to invest in clean energy technology, like solar panels or an electric vehicle, can expect to benefit from things like tax credits and direct consumer rebates.

On paper, some might call such a legislative package monumental, in its effort to incentivize consumers to reduce their GHG emissions."
