It's high time the international shipping industry radically curbed its emissions. The industry must set a net-zero target and adopt a realistic plan to meet it.

Under a Biden administration, fireside chats in the White House will come with new expectations that Australia significantly increases its ambitions under the Paris agreement.
Modern agriculture releases lots of different greenhouse gas emissions, each with complex effects on the global climate.
The coronavirus pandemic caused the UN's annual climate conference to be postponed by a year, but it was also responsible for a drop in carbon emissions. Is it enough and will it last?
Climate activists gather outside the Supreme Court of the Netherlands on Dec. 20, 2019, ahead of a ruling in a landmark case in which the government was ordered to slash greenhouse gas emissions by 25 per cent by 2020.

A ground-breaking court case in the Netherlands could influence the way Canadian courts rule on the government's actions on climate change.

The Paris climate change agreement aims to limit global warming to 1.5C above pre-industrial temperatures — and the federal carbon pricing plan was meant to help Canada meet its commitments.
The report by the World Meteorological Organisation shows that with large and rapid emissions cuts, we can still avoid the most severe climate change. But worryingly, we also have time to make it far worse.
Three decades of growing scientific certainty about climate change have yielded little progress.
The Trump presidency has been a godsend for an Australian government apparently uninterested in significant climate action. But with Trump well behind in the polls, that's set to change.
Debris covered Khumbu glacier in the Everest region of Nepal.
How speculation came to be presented as scientific fact and inspired a decidedly non-glacial race to discover the future of Himalayan glaciers.
To limit warming to 1.5℃ above pre-industrial levels, we'll need to cut global emissions by 7.6% each year this decade. It's difficult, but not impossible.
Australia abandoned its moral obligations under Kyoto. By carrying our mistakes into the Paris deal, we risk firming our status as a global climate pariah.
Strict physical distancing restrictions have resulted in cleaner air, but atmospheric carbon dioxide levels continue to rise.
Despite clear air as a result of the pandemic reducing human activities, our emissions still soar.
A decentralised climate organisation, based on blockchain, could help get the world to work together to act against climate change.
Bullet trains are back on the agenda. But a new analysis shows that rather than helping cut emissions, such a project would drive them up for at least 24 years.
The long-awaited paper sets a positive tone. But it's not clear if the government grasps the sheer scale or urgency of the emissions reduction task.
New research reveals which sectors of the global economy fuelled the emissions decline during COVID-19. We have a narrow window of time to make the change permanent.
The coronavirus slowdown provides an opportunity to reset the economy to address climate change.
