COVID-19: Queensland to open borders to NSW as of 1 February 2021
Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk has today announced that all current border restrictions that apply to residents of NSW, will be lifted as of a minute past midnight on Monday1 February.
Most of NSW could already cross the border, except for Greater Sydney, and more specifically a set of local government areas that had recorded outbreaks associated with the Northern Beaches and Berala cluster.
Apparently, contact tracers in NSW were racing to link 6 new infections before Queensland reviewed its border closures, and they did it!
Annastacia Palaszczuk is expected to hold a press conference from Cairns, in far north Queensland later this morning.
The aviation industry has a difficult road ahead when it comes to sustainability. It’s going to require a relative revolution in technology, with ‘electric planes’ or hydrogen planes, or some form of jet engine that doesn’t require a carbon based fuel. And that is going to require the development of an alternative to jet engines probably.
It’s a big ask. It will take time to develop.
This move to home grown and manufactured SAF is a first step – maybe even a baby step in a very long road of innovation. In the long run, US$200 million won’t even touch the sides.
Let’s hope that Steven Marshal makes the same announcement about the South Australian borders later today. If that’s the case, I will be on a plane next week!
