China wages 'war on air pollution', but turning away from fossil fuels towards natural gas has its challenges.
The vast majority of climate scientists agree that rising CO₂ is driving climate change, yet barely 50% of the public agrees. Did scientists get the story wrong? No, as the fossil record makes clear.
A new study lays out what must happen immediately for any hope of limiting global warming to 1.5°C.
A key tool for capturing and storing carbon may have been hiding in plain sight all along.
If the climate is in peril, why has the federal government approved a pipeline that will ship close to 600,000 barrels of oil per day from Alberta to British Columbia?
By enacting a legislative framework to achieve carbon neutrality, France and the United Kingdom are making a difference in the fight against climate change.
Mexico is a leader in climate change action in the developing world. But renewing its commitment to oil may stymie further progress.

Natural gas supplies are growing, but so are other markets for it besides power generation.
In the eastern reaches of Siberia, scientists discovered plants with exceptional cold tolerance that could be the key to sustainable bioenergy production.
Recent pipeline explosions have brought the problem of Mexico's black market for oil into tragic relief.
While countries recognise the urgent need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by favouring greener energies, the ever-increasing demand for electricity has led to rising coal consumption.
There are precedents regarding power generation and ethanol but no nation has ever achieved as comprehensive and dramatic this fast.
