Global efforts to cut emissions fall well short of what’s needed to avoid dangerous warming. It’s becoming essential to develop carbon-removal strategies to get to net zero.
We used satellite data to create global maps of where and how fires are burning. Fire season lasts two weeks longer than it used to and fires are more intense. But there are regional differences.
Any smart climate strategy will need to simultaneously move away from fossil fuels and protect biodiversity, including through carbon sink preservation and a shift toward sustainable agriculture.
Our carbon budget is shrinking fast. We crunched the data to find pathways for G20 nations to act faster
The 142 fossil fuel producers collectively exceeded the limits on coal, gas and oil production required to achieve the Paris Agreement goals by between 63% and 70%.
One year away from the 2024 Olympic Games, the grim reality of climate change is impossible to deny. How do we make the mega-event sustainable and avoid the pitfalls of greenwashing?
Large stretches of the Arctic are carbon-rich peat bogs. As the region warms and dries, lightning strikes can spark underground fires that can burn for years.
Everyone loves a barbecue – here’s how to enjoy it while being mindful of our planet.
The environmental pawprint of pets is huge – and it’s mostly down to what we feed them.
Victoria’s native forests will be free from logging by the end of the year. That’s big news for our threatened species and fragmented forests
Look for hidden trade-offs, political contributions and what businesses are not telling you.
There’s more to sustainability than net zero. Using green ammonia for fuel and as a way to transport hydrogen could add to nitrogen pollution that already exceeds safe planetary boundaries.
Shipping companies have billions invested in fleets that were built to last decades. Now, the US is calling for zero emissions by 2050, and the EU is raising the cost of fossil fuel use.
An EV industry expert offers five reasons to be optimistic that the government’s ambitious proposed rules to clean up auto emissions can succeed.
All those Cinderella stories, buzzer-beating finishes and wild cheering sections have a high price tag – for the climate.
Speed limits are coming down to improve road safety. Expanding the policy to target high-carbon emission vehicles would be a simple and effective climate strategy.
In this podcast, Michelle Grattan and Greens leader Adam Bandt discuss climate change, the cost of living crisis and the Voice.
New Zealand is considering a plan to tax methane from cows. But while cows and cars both emit greenhouse gases, they don’t have the same impact over time.
As we modernise Australia’s power grid, we should look to superconducting cables to save energy, cut emissions and future-proof the system
The cost of sustainability is no longer a deal breaker for some business owners, but more can be done to encourage decarbonisation efforts.
