The real decisions on Australia’s emissions reduction are being made by state governments and civil society, or outside the country altogether.
Humanity faces an extraordinary threat - why are so many of us not motivated into action?
Halving Australia’s 2030 target would see Australia become a valued and relevant party to negotiations at Glasgow, rather than a resented freeloader. Here’s how we could get there.
Major international donors, including the US, China and UK, are pledging to stop funding fossil fuel projects overseas, but they aren’t making the equivalent cuts at home.
The problem of increasing plastic waste has been exacerbated by the pandemic, requiring better regulation and monitoring to solve.
This is a transcript of part 2 of Climate Fight: the world’s biggest negotiation, a series from The Anthill podcast.
Problems with affordable, accessible energy could be mitigated by making more energy providers publicly owned.
India and China are the cheapest places to install rooftop solar, while the US, Japan and the UK are the most expensive.
Four years after Hurricane Maria wreaked havoc on Puerto Rico, federal money to rebuild its electricity system is finally about to flow. But it may not deliver what islanders want.
While the outcome of the 2021 federal election offered little in the way of change, it may have left Canada better positioned to make progress on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Natural gas was once widely seen as a bridge fuel to renewable energy. But the industry’s methane leaks make it a larger global warming threat than people realized.
Good governance should be seen as the first and main tool for achieving climate change mitigation as policymakers pursue sustainable solutions for the environmental crisis.
To understand the CO₂ shortage, we need to look at fertiliser production – and why it has stalled in the UK.
A large amount of methane emissions come from natural gas infrastructure and landfills – all problems companies know how to fix.
The shipping sector’s emissions are equivalent to some industrial countries: here’s some innovative ways to help reduce them.
The way we use fossil fuels is wasteful and inefficient. A world based on renewable energy would need half as much as we produce now.
The world is moving away fossil fuels, and there’s nothing Australia can do about it. Racing to dig up and sell whatever fossil fuels we can before the timer stops is not a future-proof strategy.
Our new study reveals how tight the world’s remaining carbon budget is.
The world recently celebrated the end of leaded petrol, as sales ceased in Algeria.
New research shows how fracking could pose a threat to surface water quality, with consequences for human and environmental health.
