Rainforest species didn't co-evolve with fire – and even a low intensity wildfire can kill half the trees.
The species which surround a tree in a forest make up the character of its neighbourhood. Good neighbours can make forests resilient to climate change.
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.
By enacting a legislative framework to achieve carbon neutrality, France and the United Kingdom are making a difference in the fight against climate change.
A nanotube innovation using waste plastic could help solve one of the world's energy problems.
South Africa will introduce the carbon tax which should be used to ensure benefits to poor communities.
Don't let stock markets reports convince you that when the markets are up, all is well in the world. When the market is up, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is up, and the global environment is down.
Recent extreme rains and weather in the Midwest are causing a multitude of problems in the topsoil that much of the nation's food supply relies on.
The Earth’s past shows the key role of CO₂ on climate for 4.45 billion years, and how human industrial activity has disrupted its cycle at an unprecedented rate over the past 160 years.
Democrats such as Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Markey are proposing an ambitious decarbonization plan that critics are calling unaffordable. A green economist explains how the US could pay for it.
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.
Ponds are good for more than just decorating the garden – they could be your best tool in fighting climate change.
When did eating become so confusing? In the 1960s, studies began to show a link between heart disease and dietary fat, and fat was demonized. As it turns out, fat is nuanced and may not be so bad.
Whether forged by geological processes or laboratory techniques, diamonds are diamonds. Their unique properties mean they have applications that are not bling-related as well.
One big problem with plastics is that they're largely made of petroleum. Sourcing bio-polymers from plants and bacteria has some big benefits – and the technology is starting to take off.
A too rapid transition to a low-carbon economy would threaten financial stability. A slow transition would run the risk of exceeding irreversible ecological thresholds.
The carbon tax is an unpopular and deeply unequal measure. And Sweden, given as an example in this field, needs to be examined more closely.
Canada has made strides, but we're still far from being a climate leader. Budgeting our emissions would help bring us to the front of the pack.
AGL has announced plans to use coal to make hydrogen fuel at its Loy Yang A station in Victoria's Latrobe Valley. Wait, isn't coal made of carbon, not hydrogen? Yes, but here's how the process works.
Tropical deforestation can release a huge amount of carbon into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change.
