Canada's top-down approach to designing its climate policy has failed. It needs to find ways to engage with individuals.
Three years after the Paris Agreement, negotiators have finally agreed (most of) the rules for its implementation. But there is still no way to compel countries to deepen their climate ambitions.
For the second year in a row global greenhouse emissions from fossil fuels have risen, putting 2018 on course to set a new record, according to an annual audit from the Global Carbon Project.
We may only have 12 years to stop climate change and the landmark Paris Agreement of 2015 seems more in doubt than ever. What can we hope to come out of COP24?
As leaders and negotiators head to Katowice, Poland for this year's round of UN climate talks, it is clear that there is still much work to be done to meet the goals set in Paris three years ago.
At a time when the rules-based trading system is being shredded and the Paris Agreement risks unravelling, it is vital that the G20 meeting between the two superpowers is a constructive one.
Making the transition to a sustainable energy future also means ensuring that affected communities - such as Australia's coal workers - aren't left by the wayside.
Bill C-69 will slow down Canada's efforts to transition to a decarbonized and sustainable economy.
While extreme weather conditions represent a considerable challenge globally, some communities have been living with (and adapting to) similar events for centuries.
Staying below 1.5°C will require urgent, deep and radical changes in almost every aspect of our lives.
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 UK was part of the EU's collective pledge of emissions cuts ahead of Paris.
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.
Nuclear energy should be a possibility for African countries.
In 2017 18.8 million people were displaced by natural disasters, with floods accounting for 8.6 million. Climate change is poised to drive those numbers higher still.
We need to move past biased, opaque models for energy policies.
If there were enough floor-crossers to sink the package's emissions reduction legislation, that would effectively (though not literally) amount to a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister.
Keeping global warming to 1.5°C could significantly decrease the frequency of extreme climate events across Africa.
Canada wants to move towards a green economy and meet its Paris Agreement targets, but it has also just taken ownership of a pipeline. How can the federal government deal with this paradox?
Global warming will be most noticeable where the weather doesn't normally vary much, such as the tropics. But these places are also home to many of the world's poorest and least culpable nations.
