New research finds that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and other ozone-depleting substances have boosted the effects of climate change in the Arctic.
Without a radical change of course on climate change, Australians will struggle to survive on this continent, let alone thrive.
For decades Australian scientists have, clearly and respectfully, warned about the risks to Australia of a rapidly heating climate. After this season's fires, perhaps it's time to listen.
There’s more than one way to frame the science of climate change.
The science says that more or better climate education won't convince sceptics. Here's what we can do instead.
