Amazon, Facebook and Google have lofty goals for their effects on global society. But people around the world are still waiting for the positive results. Here's what the tech giants could do.
Burning natural gas produces less greenhouse gases than coal or oil. But the methane emissions associated with natural gas production and liquefaction threaten to erode its environmental benefits.
Raising livestock has clear impacts on the environment, but contrary to what many critics say, it is not the biggest driver of climate change.
With consultation underway to improve the New Zealand emissions trading scheme, experts argue that a reserve price on emissions units could help rebuild confidence in low-emission investment.
Water and energy use are becoming more efficient, which is good news for both the economy and the environment. But Australia has yet to realise the value of national environmental accounting.
If the US were to stop dumping these valuable metals in landfills and to cease exporting them as cheap scrap, its imports could fall, and there would be less of these metals being made from scratch.
Nigeria can make some changes to harness its energy resources and lower its carbon footprint while providing power to its people.
