Carbon accounting isn't always simple, so it's important to make it easier to measure and reduce emissions at the local level. And that's ultimately the starting point for global climate action.
The global warming potential of different greenhouse gases is often poorly understood, distorting which are the biggest concern.
Social tipping interventions have the potential to pave the way for rapid change and avert climate change.
The UK's official climate advisor recommends up to 50,000 hectares of new woodland each year by 2050.
Supply chains can amount to four times an organisation’s own operational carbon footprint.
A technological arms race in the 80s resulted in a world-first solar cell, that today underpins half the world's solar power.
An innovative method of carbon capture and storage could substantially reduce the emission of small industries while using geothermal energy to heat homes and thus replacing fossil-fuel energies.
The Indonesian government has been distributing funds for village development. In 2019, the money can also be used for climate change adaptation and mitigation.
Countries still figure out their emissions by adding up all the sources, rather than measuring what's actually in the air.
Lakes are the final resting place for many of the Earth's plants – and these organic graveyards are about to get a whole lot busier.
The cement needed to make concrete – the most widely used man-made material – is a major source of global emissions. Researchers are working on a green replacement that could transform the sector.
Hundreds of Canadian municipalities have declared climate emergencies but many have yet to take action.
As the share of renewable energies in the energy mix rises, policymakers must understand how renewable energies can influence electricity prices.
There is evidence for catastrophic climate change from protracted volcanic eruptions in the past, but since the 1950s the emissions we produce far exceed those from volcanic activity.
In New Zealand, where more than 80% of electricity is renewable, the carbon footprint of electric cars is 62% lower than that of fossil cars. But their lithium battery has other environmental impacts.
Polls show that climate change is one of the top-three issues for Canadians heading to the ballot box.
Australia's entire coal fleet will retire in the next few decades. The federal government's response to the Hazelwood coal plant closure has left a mess – it must do better.
Vehicle emissions and industrial facilities are contributing to climate change, but many conservatives don't believe it.
Ahead of the UN climate summit, we take stock of the world's best and worst performers on climate action - including some surprise success stories.
The United Nations is calling on world governments to step up action against climate change. Can China, the world's biggest carbon emitter, fulfill its pledges?
