ABSTRACT
The article discusses some of the preparations that Australians have to adapt to address unavoidable climate change. It cites on adaptation and mitigation which are considered as the fundamental to the public debate on climate change. It further stresses that most of the efforts in addressing climate change have been entirely focused on mitigation, which are taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as to enhance carbon sinks worldwide.
