Embracing hope in the good, alongside recognizing the bad, can reduce eco-anxiety, improve mental health and may just be the key to driving strong and meaningful climate action.
As Climate Change and Energy Minister Chris Bowen lands in Dubai for COP28, Australia has announced an extra A$150 in climate finance with a focus on the Pacific region.
Carbon capture and sequestration can play a role in limiting warming but the nuances of its application are far more complicated than just planting trees. Getting it wrong could make warming worse.
The agreement still leaves many unanswered questions, as well as concerns from vulnerable countries about who will qualify, who pays and who is in charge.
Releasing reflective particles into the upper atmosphere would help us tackle climate change – but it’s not without risk.
We can’t prevent continued global warming without reaching net zero carbon dioxide emissions. New climate simulations show what might happen when we get there.
Australia’s latest climate change statement shows we have little hope of reaching net zero emissions by 2050. There’s good news on the 2030 target, but then what?
Commonly used schemes such as the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, B Corp certifications and the Global Reporting Initiative fail to hold businesses accountable on their green targets.
Through the Loss and Damage Fund, developed states and major emitters will compensate developing countries experiencing the most devastating effects of climate change. The fund is now operational.
Africans need to re-envision what climate resilient development means within unique African city contexts.
A recent study found one billion people are likely to die prematurely by the end of the century from climate change. Here are seven energy policies that could save their lives.
Temperature records are tumbling – how much progress is really being made towards tackling climate change?
In what’s likely to be the hottest year on record, nations are gathering to try and hash out faster action on climate change. Here are the three main issues facing negotiators.
Research shows that the distribution of temperate hardwoods (sugar maple, red maple and yellow birch) could be shifting northward, which would have serious consequences for the boreal forest.
Negotiating global progress on climate change involves walking a fine line, as a former UN official explains.
Is the disastrous impact we’re having on the planet affecting our decision about having children of our own?
Humanity’s ecological footprint takes many different and interconnected forms that are all getting worse.
From dark dragonflies becoming paler to plants flowering earlier, some species are slowly evolving with the climate. Evolutionary biologists explain why few will evolve fast enough.
Daily global temperature records keep breaking. It’s a sign we’re on a rapidly warming planet.
Climate modelling that best accounts for the processes that sustain plant life predicts plants could absorb up to 20% more CO₂ than the simplest version predicted.
