Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie, a category 3 cyclone, is set to intensify to a category 4 by tomorrow morning as it makes landfall on the north Queensland coast. This is the biggest storm in the region since the category 5 Tropical Cyclones Yasi (2011) and Ului (2010).
Beachside towns surrounding Ayr have just been evacuated in preparation.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
