The 1.5℃ global warming limit is not impossible – but without political action it soon will be

Humanity can still limit global warming to 1.5°C this century. But political action will determine whether it actually does. Conflating the two questions amounts to dangerous, misplaced punditry.

Wake up, Mr Morrison: Australia’s slack climate effort leaves our children 10 times more work to do

We hear a lot about the Morrison government 'kicking the can down the road' on emissions reduction. New research reveals the precise burden that forces onto young Australians.

New research suggests 1.5C climate target will be out of reach without greener COVID-19 recovery plans

Several countries have made pledges to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to zero by mid-century. But new research finds the remaining carbon budget will be depleted before we get there.

Canada finally has a climate plan that will let it meet its carbon targets by 2030

None of Canada's past climate targets or plans has been credible. But the math on the latest plan, which relies on a steadily increasing carbon price, could have Canada meet its 2030 goal.

The Paris Agreement at 5: Time’s running out. How to get the world back on track to meet its climate goals

The Paris Agreement set countries on a path to limit global warming. Five years on, some progress has been made, but not enough. Decarbonizing the economy will take leadership and imagination.
