New research reveals the environmental impact of keeping tropical fish as household pets – but there are ways to reduce it.
Despite the meteoric rise of wind and solar, fossil energy sources have met most new demand in fast-growing economies.
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.
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.
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.
There’s nothing normal about the blast furnace heat much of the world has been experiencing, as an atmospheric scientist explains.
Zimbabwe’s climate action plan is on track to check emissions and promote development. Other countries can learn from it.
It’s not just ocean temperatures that determine whether we have El Niño or La Niña. Air circulation also plays a role, and it’s changing in unexpected ways.
We can construct buildings that reduce atmospheric CO₂ by more than their lifetime emissions. They now don’t cost much more – and a project involving 1.2 million homes would drive costs down further.
Taxing consumption that contributes to climate change hits the poor the hardest, while overlooking the huge profits tied to greenhouse gas emissions.
Humans (particularly those in the Northern Hemisphere) generally prefer the heat, a bias which has hampered effective climate communications for decades.
Figuring out who is responsible for cutting a city’s emissions and how their efforts will be coordinated is complicated.
Air travel emissions are proving difficult and costly to cut, but travellers can make a surprisingly big difference simply by changing how they travel to and from the airport.
Regulating greenhouse gas emissions is an important part of Canada’s strategy to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. However, a newly published study illustrates why enforcing regulation is key.
How much does human behavior influence climate change? Can it be changed, and how? In June, climate change experts and behavioral scientists came together to answer these important questions.
Australia has a lot of wind and sun, but will we actually become a world leader in renewable energy generation?
International shipping is a big contributor to climate change, and it doesn’t change quickly, but its companies are starting to invest in cleaner fuels.
Victoria has a plan for the state to electrify, but how do we make the transition fair and equitable for everyone? New research suggests a way forward.
Returns cost companies billions of dollars in lost sales. They also generate emissions and packaging waste. Two logistics experts offer some tips from psychology for more sustainable returns.
