Holding climate change to 1.5 might be possible – but in the best case, we’ll blow past the limit first and then backpedal.
In a momentous case, young EU citizens will seek to draw among a range of principles from human rights, such as that of effectiveness, to arm-twist governments into impactful climate action.
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.
The International Energy Agency moved up the date when it expects oil demand to peak to before 2030. Electric vehicle growth is a big part of the reason.
Our research shows the world is not on track to achieve any of the Sustainable Development Goals. But with decisive action, we can still achieve a fairer, more sustainable and prosperous future.
A new report explores options for managing the period after global warming exceeds 1.5℃. This is called ‘climate overshoot’, because we’re pushing past the safe zone into dangerous climate change.
What makes a great climate leader and why are we not seeing more of them? I’ve been searching for good examples of climate leaders. This is the subject of our new documentary, Climate Changers.
July was the hottest month on record – and took us past 1.5 degrees. But one month isn’t the same as failing to meet our Paris Agreement goals
Zimbabwe’s climate action plan is on track to check emissions and promote development. Other countries can learn from it.
Rising seas are pushing coastal ecosystems to the limit of endurance. Now international research reveals a “tipping point” will be reached if we allow more than 2 degrees of global warming.
The report to be released on Thursday says an increase in global temperatures of 3-4°C would cost Australia $135 billion to $423 billion.
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%.
More than a century of research shows that burning fossil fuels warms the climate – that’s exactly why granting new North Sea oil and gas licenses is a bad idea.
Over the past three years, Earth’s climate system has accumulated an average of 11 Hiroshima bombs’ worth of excess energy per second. And it’s showing in the current surge in ocean temperature.
Temperature rise of more than 1℃ pushes us towards irreversible climate tipping points, yet Earth is 1.2℃ warmer than in pre-industrial times.
Study suggests that current national climate commitments could be enough to stabilise global warming within the century. But mitigation action needs to be turbocharged.
A free trade agreement between Australia and the United Kingdom has begun – and it failed to put climate change at the forefront.
When Buckingham Palace announced the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September, the news overshadowed reporting of a critical review of climate tipping points, published in Science. Did you miss it?
Governments are more than regulators — they are also major greenhouse gas emitters.
Making the green energy transition a success requires governments to pay attention to environmental factors and socioeconomic imperatives.
