Scientists introduced credible climate change to the world in 1979, but it's taken decades for their message to sink in.
Could our best shot at stopping climate catastrophe be restoring forests on a massive scale?
The vast majority of climate scientists agree that rising CO₂ is driving climate change, yet barely 50% of the public agrees. Did scientists get the story wrong? No, as the fossil record makes clear.
A key tool for capturing and storing carbon may have been hiding in plain sight all along.
Carbon offsetting is one way of doing it – but sometimes the simplest methods work best.
Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are at 414 parts per million. But thanks to a recalculation of methane's warming power, the total amount of greenhouse gases is now equivalent to more than 500.
A scientist explains how global warming is affecting the entire world – from the mountains, to the sea.
Electricity consumption will grow as more people switch to electric cars – but this could drive up emissions, unless power is sourced from renewables.
Don't let stock markets reports convince you that when the markets are up, all is well in the world. When the market is up, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is up, and the global environment is down.
Thousands of years ago, carbon gases trapped on the seafloor escaped, causing drastic warming that helped end the last ice age. A scientist says climate change could cause this process to repeat.
Phytoplankton are tiny, but they do important work.
The Earth’s past shows the key role of CO₂ on climate for 4.45 billion years, and how human industrial activity has disrupted its cycle at an unprecedented rate over the past 160 years.
In the eastern reaches of Siberia, scientists discovered plants with exceptional cold tolerance that could be the key to sustainable bioenergy production.
The Drax biomass plant in Yorkshire is the first in the world to pioneer carbon capture and some specialists see it as it has a bright future. But hold the rosy headlines.
Many researchers have studied the impact of carbon dioxide and heat on crop growth inside greenhouses. But what happens in the real world? One team has just done this and the results are surprising.
Brexit may be an unexpected boon for the UK's climate leadership. Here's how the UK can seize the initiative.
For the second year in a row global greenhouse emissions from fossil fuels have risen, putting 2018 on course to set a new record, according to an annual audit from the Global Carbon Project.
Replanting the world's great forests should be a central demand at COP24.
Increase of carbon dioxide in the ocean affects the way fish detect predators, mates or food and could threaten not only individual fish but entire populations.
One big problem with plastics is that they're largely made of petroleum. Sourcing bio-polymers from plants and bacteria has some big benefits – and the technology is starting to take off.
