ABC's World Today: Heatwave to hit record temperatures across Australia


As Australians this week brace for a nationwide heatwave which could see temperatures approach 50 degrees in some areas, Dr Arnagretta Hunter says that while people have lived with such high temperatures, worsening climate change could test our biological limits over the coming years. 

Featured guests on the program today were: 

  • Doctor Arnagretta Hunter, cardiologist and ACT Chair for Doctors for the Environment Australia
  • Chad Staples, Western Sydney Zookeeper 
  • Paul Roberts, SA Power Networks
