Extreme weather is behind much of the crisis, but it will make the transition to new energy sources more complicated.
The government can no longer delay decisions on the future of gas in Britain’s energy system.
The development strategy based on foreign investment in natural resources projects has not delivered economic growth or security. What’s needed is an inclusive vision based on local realities.
The opportunity won’t last forever. Countries that move first will gain an advantage in new industries, technologies and export markets. Those that wait may never catch up.
The conflict has put a temporary lid on plans that have been in the making for more than a decade since rich liquefied natural gas reserves were discovered in the Rovuma Basin.
In Australia, methane emissions from fossil fuels are rising due to expansion of the natural gas industry, whereas agriculture emissions are falling.
Every few years, the idea of using gas to transition to a zero-emissions economy seems to re-emerge. Woodside’s Burrup Hub proposal shows why it’s still a bad move.
The benefits of gas-fired power are badly overstated, and will take Australia further in the wrong direction on climate change.
The assassination of the Iranian general could have lasting effects on energy markets. Which countries could benefit from it and which could be negatively affected?
Carbon emissions will hit a record high for the second year in a row, but there is a small silver lining: the rate of emissions growth has slowed dramatically.
Coal and gas have been proposed as a way to make ‘clean’ hydrogen. But that road is full of challenges.
In the same decade we are supposed to be cutting emissions under the Paris goals, our coal production is projected to increase by 34%.
If Australia is the biggest gas exporter in the world, why are we shipping it back in? Because the gas market is dysfunctional - and it means consumers are suffering.
The costs, and the pain, of climate change only increase the longer we wait to act.
Ahead of the UN climate summit, we take stock of the world’s best and worst performers on climate action - including some surprise success stories.
Australia is one of the sunniest and windiest countries on the planet, but emissions are still rising. How do you justify that?
Only an optimist would expect prices to fall after a series of announcements, some of which are to “consider” doing something.
South Africa’s policymakers see a greater role for liquefied natural gas in the country’s energy mix, reduce the country’s over-reliance on coal and drive re-industrialisation.
A fifth of the world’s oil travels through the narrow waterway.
The federal government claims that Australia’s rising emissions are offset by savings around the globe when Australian gas exports replace other fossil fuels. But the numbers don’t stack up like that.
