Countries such as Mauritania have contributed little to climate change, yet face the worst impacts such as crop failure.
The countries that have contributed the least to climate change will experience the worst of its effects.
Larry Marshall is right that the question of global warming has been answered. But there are many more climate questions to answer.

CSIRO's climate scientists haven't "finished" just because climate change is real. Without their expertise, we could waste billions on drought or flood planning that's not backed by the latest science.

New data have revealed a disturbing trend in forest loss: the hearts of the world's forests are disappearing. To stop them bleeding out, we'll have to say 'no' to some developments.

Australia's greenhouse emissions are once again rising, after a decade of consistent declines. But the right policies are already in place to turn things around - they just need to be ramped up.
To lawn or not to lawn, that is the question.
As summer rolls on once again you're despairing at a brown lawn. Perhaps you should embrace a shabbier backyard.
Trees take more planning than you might think.
Planting more trees in our cities is a good idea, but we need to remember to plan ahead for conditions those trees might encounter when they mature in half a century's time.
You need to keep a close eye on croc numbers for several decades before knowing how many eggs to harvest.

Former PM's business advisor Maurice Newman recently claimed that satellite temperature data tell a different story to data collected on the ground. He's right - but that's how it's meant to be.
Fighting fires in remote wilderness requires a different way of thinking.
Fires in Tasmania have burnt thousands of hectares of wilderness. Other remote fires it's better to put them out quickly.

What killed off Australia's giant wombats and other megafauna? New dating once again points the finger at human hunters, rather than abrupt changes to the climate.
Pencil pines are found nowhere else in the world, and are extremely sensitive to fire.
Bushfires are threatening Tasmania's World Heritage area and ancient plants, warning us of a possible future under climate change.

'Energy productivity' is the new buzz-phrase in energy and climate policy, what even is it?
What’s hiding in your garden this summer?
Have a look in your garden - you might be surprised at some of the native animals that thrive there when the weather's hot.
Rural southern Australia has been drying out over the past several decades. Pictured here, Burra in South Australia.
Australia is the land of drought of flooding rains, driven by events such as El Nino. But despite this variability, some parts of Australia are clearly drying out.
The urban landscape is complex and ever-changing in cities such as Perth, but digital aerial photography can now monitor even the smallest changes.
Constant, complex changes in cities and mine sites are hard to monitor. Drawing on digital aerial photography, it's now possible to track land-use and vegetation changes in areas as small as 10-20cm.
The land may be dry, but Western Australia’s waters are full of life.
The Great Barrier Reef might get all the attention, but what about our western coral reefs? Warmer waters and human impacts mean these reefs are in trouble.
