Scientists tend to study heatwaves and floods as discrete events – but this overlooks the crucial connections between them.
Climate change models predict tuna will leave the waters of Pacific Island nations, meaning they will lose a crucial revenue source.
Heat endurance specialists have warned for years that temperatures at Tokyo 2020 events would be extreme. Should future Summer Olympics become the Autumn Games?
Beekeeping changes how people see and relate to the environment – there’s a lot we can learn.
A bipartisan group of senators said it reached a deal on $550 billion in new spending on infrastructure.
New ABARES research examines the climate change challenge facing Australian farmers
For one of Earth’s most biodiverse forests, 21,000 years of natural change pale in comparison to modern, man-made climate breakdown.
The Army Corps of Engineers is planning a sea wall 6 miles long and flood gates. The infrastructure might protect downtown from a hurricane storm surge, but most of the area will still be vulnerable.
But with new commitments getting made by governments all over the world, we hope to see this progress improve soon.
With higher warming levels, most of the spaces in which species can survive will be lost and the potential for restoration will become more limited.
Globally, the temperature changed by half a degree Celsius, but it dramatically altered the likelihood of extreme local weather.
Last week the Bureau of Meteorology declared a negative Indian Ocean Dipole — a natural climate phenomenon set to bring wet weather. Let’s look at what you can expect, and the role of climate change.
The water cycle is intensifying as the world warms, bringing heavier downpours and longer droughts.
Friday’s decision from the World Heritage Committee doesn’t change the irrefutable evidence that dangerous impacts are occurring on the Great Barrier Reef.
Not every extreme weather event is caused by climate change, but heat waves that were once ridiculously improbable are showing up more often. Just ask Portland.
People can die when the federal government doesn’t work well with state and local governments – the COVID-19 crisis showed that. But the Biden administration has signaled an openness to collaboration.
The triple whammy of the moon’s wobble, sea level rise and more intense storms will bring worse tidal floods into coastal communities in the 2030s. This includes in Australia.
The results of Foote’s simple experiments were confirmed through hundreds of tests by scientists in the US and Europe. It happened more than a century ago.
It’s time to stop demonising cyclists and cycling activists as elitists — the accusation fails at the first test.
My new research shows Australia has spent more subsidising fossil fuel research indirectly via research and development tax credits than directly via grants.
