Our research shows the best changes individuals can make to cut carbon emissions and reduce the effects of climate change.
In a 6-3 ruling, the Supreme Court held that an Obama administration plan to regulate carbon emissions from power plants exceeded the power that Congress gave to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Thanks to their high concentrations of phytoplankton, African lakes emit less CO2 than their boreal counterparts, with important consequences for climate modelling.
The road map for a more sustainable future starts with clean energy and fossil-fuel-free transportation.
Thanks to humans, the concentration of planet-warming carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is now 50% higher than before the industrial era. These gases are raising Earth’s temperature.
The concept of the carbon footprint can do more than just make us feel guilty about the climate cost of our everyday lives.
The war in Ukraine threatens to turn back the clock on Russia’s climate progress, with some calling on the country to leave the Paris Agreement and roll back environmental regulations.
Bitcoin has lost over half of its value since November 2021.
A traffic light labelling system and making sustainable dishes the default menu option boosted their popularity.
War, famine and an energy crunch are affecting the world’s response to climate change, but there are reasons for optimism.
Drained peatlands contribute five per cent of global carbon emissions. Paludiculture, or agriculture on wet peatlands, protects peatlands and allows farmers to maintain their livelihoods.
Designed by scientists, a comic book empowers the reader to become a pioneer of cutting-edge, agro-ecological farming in developing countries.
When groundwater comes to the surface, sunlight and air convert organic molecules to greenhouse gases. That’s going to be a problem as we will need this water more as the world warms.
It is time to acknowledge and address the rapid shifts in Canada’s oceans. To meet this challenge, Canada’s marine conservation toolbox — starting with the Oceans Act — needs an overhaul.
The Earth is a resilient planet, but people are altering it in ways that may take centuries to reverse.
Using our oceans as carbon sinks could help achieve climate goals set in the most recent IPCC report.
Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions decreased by only one per cent between 2005 and 2019. A new climate plan charts the path to deep cuts in carbon emissions in only eight years.
Technologies like biomass gasification can help tackle the growing global problem of food waste.
As climate change pressures intensify, ecosystems may lose their ability to bounce back from disasters.
The SEC’s proposal would require companies to disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and other climate risks, but it’s not a done deal yet.
