The science tells us this is our last chance to avert planetary disaster. Accepting our feelings of intense loss – for ourselves and the Earth – can propel us into action, writes Joelle Gergis.
Wildfires are intensifying, yet they’re one of the most poorly understood phenomena on Earth. New research shows that they can disturb both regional and global climate.
Extreme downpours caught people off guard from Las Vegas to Kentucky in July 2022.
Even some climate change scientists who sit on the IPCC think the organisation needs a rethink.
The big climate and biodiversity assessment reports are too few and far between. The world needs much more regular reporting for action and adaptation to keep pace.
Climate artists can offer a vision of tangible networks, activities, behaviours and lifestyles that, rather than damaging the planet, support planetary — and personal — health and well-being.
As the ocean temperature rises, many marine species are moving toward the north and south poles in search of cooler waters, thus rewriting the menus of seafood restaurants on the West Coast of Canada.
The Coalition’s climate policy is consistent with a very dangerous 3℃ of global warming. But one party is comfortably consistent with keeping warming at safe levels.
The IPCC’s latest climate report discusses how colonialism has shaped climate, a breakthrough for the climate justice movement.
Under certain conditions, climate can amplify security risks, with implications for lasting peace.
Solutions already exist. What’s holding humanity back is the will to get past the status quo and embrace innovation.
Using our oceans as carbon sinks could help achieve climate goals set in the most recent IPCC report.
Climate change is a real threat to people, planet and prosperity. Every strategy has a role to play in contributing to a net-zero future.
Emission of greenhouse gases is on the rise, an indication that the worst lies ahead.
In 2022, Australia is facing an election in which both major parties have little to offer on emissions reductions and moving away from fossil fuels.
While carbon dioxide removal from the air is not a replacement for emissions reductions, it can supplement these efforts. Experts are continually researching the best ways to do this.
China is committed to becoming carbon neutral before 2060 – and producing green hydrogen is key to the plan.
Solar geoengineering could temporarily address the worst impacts of global warming.
A period of high fossil fuel prices has mixed implications.
A new international report on climate change finds rapid changes could cut emissions from transportation by 80% to 90%. Three behavior change trends could bring big improvements.
