There are calls for Australia’s onshore gas to flow much more freely.
Rising gas prices and energy security issues have led to calls for more gas to be pumped into our energy system. But we need to balance that with the equally pressing need to limit greenhouse emissions.
Plant species are reacting to climate change by adapting or migrating to better conditions. But this is not an option for gardens, so gardeners will have to be smarter about what they plant and where.
As politicians debate the causes of South Australia's power failures, separating fact from rhetoric has become difficult.
Rain made a welcome comeback to Australia in 2016 after several years of deepening drought. But Tasmania and the Top End were among several places that did not fare so well.
Here are some short- and medium-term strategies for transitioning to renewable, reliable and affordable energy in South Australia.
Taxing carbon has always been a tricky political sell for conservatives. But a group of establishment US Republicans is touting the idea of a carbon "tax and dividend" as a way to break the deadlock.
Glencore has admitted responsibility for air pollution in Mount Isa, but its latest report puts the onus on residents to minimise their exposure to lead contamination in their homes.
Labor has been criticised for vacillating about about its 50% renewable energy ambition. But its proposed emissions intensity scheme could boost green energy without any hard target at all.
During a Q&A discussion about climate change, Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie said it was four degrees hotter 110,000 years ago. Is that right?
There will be huge environmental impact if we keep using raw materials as we did in the 20th century.
Here's the real problem behind Australia's electricity woes: the rules that govern decisions about what infrastructure to build, and when, are inflexible and outdated.
Australia is near the back of the pack of rich nations when it comes to policies for clean energy. But there are things we can do about it.
Heat records have tumbled across New South Wales as the state suffered through the weekend's heatwave. A new analysis shows that climate change made this kind of event much less of a rarity.
More than 400 whales have died on a beach in New Zealand.
Areas like the Flinders Ranges have provided refuge for flora and fauna when the climate has changed. But rapid temperature increases and human intervention may stop them doing so again.
But should we care if the extreme marine frontier is not clean?
Think you couldn't possibly do without your car? There are more options than you might think.
Privatisation and competition were supposed to make electricity cheaper. Instead, Australia's quasi-federal energy system has made it easier to pass the buck when things go wrong.
The latest heatwave put huge pressure on our electricity grid, as Australians turned on their air conditioners. Smarter design and regulations could solve the problem.
Scientific and technological innovations and economic policies promoting growth at all costs have created a consumption and production vortex on a collision course with the Earth system.
We should be building wildlife bridges on the US-Mexico border – not walls.
LIfeguards could potentially have a new ally in the fight to reduce shark incidents: drones that can spot when a shark swims nearby, and automatically alert authorities.
South Australia's government was angry about the blackouts enforced by electricity regulators. But with much of the state's gas power offline, the regulators had little choice.
High-quality climate records only go back to the start of the 20th century. But using handwritten letters, journals and tables, researchers have access to data going back to the 18th century.
New research shows that global warming has already begun to exacerbate extremes of rainfall in the Pacific region – with more to come.
The notion of using dingoes to protect Australia's wildlife is based on wolves in the US, but research cast doubts on the link.
