Stopping the expansion of offshore oil and gas extraction is a critical but often overlooked step towards achieving global climate targets and protecting our oceans and planet.
Tracking CO2 emissions with satellites can help to support emission reduction efforts under the Paris Agreement.
Brazilian President-elect Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva says he will end land clearance in Brazil’s Amazon region. But powerful forces profit from rainforest destruction.
Carbon offsetting is often met with scepticism, but a new report suggests that if correctly designed it can be an important part of the net zero transition.
From planting mangroves to dumping minerals in the ocean, there are lots of ideas for ocean carbon dioxide removal – and even more questions.
Drones can be used to collect gas samples from active volcanoes, where it is too dangerous for researchers. This data can be then used to predict the frequency and severity of eruptions.
The cost of deploying a direct air capture unit must fall while the cost of emitting CO₂ rises.
Mosquitoes can track down potential hosts using the CO2 released by humans’ metabolic processes, a medical entomologist explains.
Cameroon has many potentially dangerous gas-charged lakes. But not much has been done to mitigate the risks they pose.
The landfill industry’s decision to speak out about the integrity of carbon credits provides an opportunity to put the system back on the rails.
Every year, air pollution kills 2,600 Australians. Australia’s new climate policy regime must account for this and other harms climate change wreaks on society.
Force oil and gas companies to dispose of a tonne of CO₂ for every one they emit.
More than 400 proposed fossil fuel extraction projects threaten to blow the world’s 1.5°C target.
Newspapers were writing about climate change more than a century ago. Here’s why it’s taken so long to start tackling it.
One estimate suggests at least a sixth of all emissions cuts expected from the Inflation Reduction Act would come from carbon capture.
Despite being a major contributor of global carbon emissions, concrete remains a popular construction material. Research suggests this needs to change.
A climate scientist looks at what works and some popular ideas that aren’t as cheap or effective as people hope.
A review of S&P 500 companies finds carbon disclosure doesn’t necessarily mean emissions fall.
Climate change’s assault on the natural world may explain mystery methane emission surge.
Thanks to their high concentrations of phytoplankton, African lakes emit less CO2 than their boreal counterparts, with important consequences for climate modelling.
