Underground thermal networks have the potential to revolutionize how Canadians heat their homes while helping to reduce carbon emissions.
To fight global warming we will soon have to try to remove carbon dioxide from the skies or find ways to reflect the Sun’s heat. Such radical paths must be examined, but risky experiments avoided.
The most comprehensive Australian carbon budget assessment completed to date shows the nation flip-flops from source to sink of carbon emissions, depending on the prevailing conditions.
Carbon pricing can be a powerful tool to combat climate change and reduce emissions, but it needs to be accompanied by improved regulations, clean technology subsidies and financing mechanisms.
As Climate Change and Energy Minister Chris Bowen lands in Dubai for COP28, Australia has announced an extra A$150 in climate finance with a focus on the Pacific region.
How many years you reuse a fake holiday tree matters. So does what happens to a live tree when you’ve packed up the ornaments.
Record emissions are fast shrinking the remaining amount of carbon dioxide we can emit if we are to limit global warming. At current rates, we’ll use up the budget for a 1.5°C outcome in seven years.
We can’t prevent continued global warming without reaching net zero carbon dioxide emissions. New climate simulations show what might happen when we get there.
Australia’s latest climate change statement shows we have little hope of reaching net zero emissions by 2050. There’s good news on the 2030 target, but then what?
Electric arc furnaces can use up to 100% scrap steel as its raw material, resulting in a significant reduction in emissions.
Africans need to re-envision what climate resilient development means within unique African city contexts.
Temperature records are tumbling – how much progress is really being made towards tackling climate change?
A flight powered by sustainable aviation fuel is making a trip across the Atlantic. But is it really a greener way to fly?
Climate modelling that best accounts for the processes that sustain plant life predicts plants could absorb up to 20% more CO₂ than the simplest version predicted.
The idea that harm done today can be offset in the future is based on a basic misunderstanding of the carbon cycle. Planting more trees is important – but it’s no substitute for cutting emissions.
Climate action should be framed not as a sacrifice but as an investment that can generate economic savings and improve human and ecosystem health today.
Australia has the world’s biggest carbon footprint from fashion. This is one area where changing our personal clothing choices can make a big difference, just as it did in the second world war.
Could the data centres that power the internet be moved to the bottom of the ocean? It’s not as crazy as it sounds
SMEs could help the UK maintain its position as a climate change champion and ensure a long-term future for all businesses, large or small
California is the world’s fifth-largest economy. Laws tested there often spread across the U.S. and around the world.
