The distinction between ‘abated’ and ‘unabated’ fossil fuels is crucial, yet remains ambiguous.
Areas of the world where species are exposed to potentially dangerous temperatures are due to get much bigger.
Species will endure intolerable conditions long after the global average temperature stabilises.
Yes COP26 fell short, but we still have reasonable odds of limiting global warming to 2°C.
Most concerning is the long-term upward trends of CO₂ emissions form burning fossil fuels, which are far from trending towards net-zero by 2050.
Many scientists now think 3°C of warming is likely.
Discord and doubt are the last things the world needs at this critical moment.
Modern agriculture releases lots of different greenhouse gas emissions, each with complex effects on the global climate.
A new study lays out what must happen immediately for any hope of limiting global warming to 1.5°C.
Earth is fast approaching the red lines that scientists have urged temperatures cannot cross if we have any hope of avoiding catastrophic climate change. Here are the emergency measures we need.
Climate change conferences can be bewildering. Here’s a recap of how we got here, what to look out for at COP24 and what comes next.
Limiting human-induced warming will be tough, given where we start from.
Canada ratified the Paris agreement on climate change, but it hasn’t yet filled the leadership void left by the United States. Time is running out.
Phasing out greenhouse gas emissions entirely by mid-century is possible, and promising trends are emerging. But the next five to ten years will be the real test of whether we can make that happen.
1.5 or 2 degrees? What matters is how we get there.
