Oil companies are pushing the world to believe they are the solution to, not the cause of, climate change.
The analysis of large amounts of ice from Antarctica’s Taylor Valley has helped scientists to tease apart the natural and human-made sources of the potent greenhouse gas methane.
Analysis of 12,000-year-old Antarctic ice reveals that methane leaks from fossil fuel extraction play a larger role than previously thought.
Plants and trees cool themselves and the surrounding environment like this building in Paris, France.
Greening cities have a huge impact. The trees go beyond just lowering temperatures. They help decrease the demand for indoor cooling like air-conditioners saving money.
Cities have always been more than a dense collection of people. They are labs of innovation, hotbeds of crime and inequality, architectural stunners, decaying ruins and everything in between.
Disruptive technology, Ming Dynasty-style.
In pulling out of the Paris climate agreement, Donald Trump has turned his back not just on the world but on the low-carbon economy. He should pay heed to a very apt lesson from China's history.
Solar energy is now powering much of the world.
New research shows it only takes a few countries to kick-start the kind of global transformation required to meet the Paris Agreement’s long-term goals.

It's thanks to decomposition brought about by beetles and fungi that we're not all buried under dead organic matter.
Some megafauna species are dangerous and costly for humans to live with.
Africa prioritises and makes more of an effort for large mammal conservation than any other region in the world.
Choerophryne frog from the Foja Mountains in New Guinea. This one is a calling male.
Tiny frogs that have spread across New Guinea's isolated mountains could face an uncertain future if a warming climate pushes them higher up the peaks.

During bird irruptions, hundreds or thousands of a single species show up outside their normal territory. Most of what we know about irruptions comes from data collected by citizen scientists.
