Cold snaps are becoming less and less likely as the world warms. But that doesn’t mean they don’t happen. An expert helps you put the colder-than-normal start to winter in context.
Extreme heat waves are putting lives in danger, with some of the hottest urban neighborhoods 10 degrees hotter or more than their wealthier neighbors. Often, these are communities of color.
Exposure to hot and dry conditions can damage the DNA of nestling birds in their first few days of life – meaning they age earlier and produce less offspring.
Thanks to humans, the concentration of planet-warming carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is now 50% higher than before the industrial era. These gases are raising Earth’s temperature.
Thwaites Glacier’s ice shelf appears to be splintering, and scientists fear it could give way in the next few years. A polar scientist takes us on a tour under the ice to explain the forces at work.
The collapse of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation would profoundly alter the anatomy of the world’s oceans and climate. New research explores the consequences.
We calculate that this project will add about 41 megatonnes per year to Australia’s national emissions from around 2030.
The concept of the carbon footprint can do more than just make us feel guilty about the climate cost of our everyday lives.
A study found $1.4 trillion in oil and gas industry assets would be at risk if governments follow through on their pledges to deal with climate change.
The EU energy label, showing customers the energy consumption of what they’re buying, can be upgraded to help make more homes and buildings energy efficient.
I implore the Labor Party to govern like every decision, and every year, matters. Because it really, really does.
The war in Ukraine threatens to turn back the clock on Russia’s climate progress, with some calling on the country to leave the Paris Agreement and roll back environmental regulations.
Coastal erosion in West Africa is a cause for global concern. The global community must rally to address climate change which is causing the retreat.
Australia’s policies prevent the necessary action to not only address cities’ contribution to climate change, but also to protect cities from its impacts.
La Niña is only part of the problem. The long-term driver of increasing drought – even in areas getting more rainfall overall – is the rapidly warming climate.
A 50-year experiment shows warmer, ‘thirstier’ air may have cut the lifespan of Queensland’s tropical trees in half since the 1980s.
Understanding how our ancestors may have benefited from industrialisation and colonialism could help us become more climate-friendly citizens.
We asked six experts to nominate books that might help us avert environmental catastrophe. Here’s what they said.
Climate change is affecting hydropower in different ways across the country.
Our research shows NZ’s potential to burn forestry waste and capture the emissions in geothermal wells. But we’ll need new partnerships between power generators, manufacturers and the forestry sector.
