How will the world actually deliver on the Paris climate ambition to hold global warming to no more than 1.5℃? It's a tough scientific and technical challenge.
Things we know: we need a bigger climate target. Thing we don't: how to reach it.
Under the Paris climate agreement, Australia has stated that it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 26-28% by 2030 compared to 2005 levels. How will we achieve this?
Despite its vital role in the development of Australia's economy, the future of coal looks grim in a world aiming to limit warming to below 2℃.
The climate agreement is littered with references to a whole range of new and expanded market-based tools.
Despite there being no reference to the words “market mechanism” or “carbon market” in the agreement, the agreement clearly establishes a new international carbon market mechanism.
The Paris Agreement is an extraordinary achievement. But there is much work to be done to ensure global warming does not exceed dangerous levels.
The Paris Agreement will leave activists demanding direct action on fossil fuels and energy market reform.
COP21 ended with an agreement that is at once both historic, important – and inadequate
At the Paris climate talks, the world has signed up to the first truly global treaty to tackle global warming. Our experts react.
Countries have signed up to the Paris climate deal, but they have not yet promised the necessary cuts to emissions.
The Paris climate agreement doesn't specifically address cutting down on coal, but the tide is turning against coal mining anyway.
The climate will change, no matter what's agreed in Paris.
Even oil companies have started asking for a price on carbon, not least because it could help them avoid other, stricter forms of regulation.
1.5 or 2 degrees? What matters is how we get there.
