All those Cinderella stories, buzzer-beating finishes and wild cheering sections have a high price tag – for the climate.
Speed limits are coming down to improve road safety. Expanding the policy to target high-carbon emission vehicles would be a simple and effective climate strategy.
In this podcast, Michelle Grattan and Greens leader Adam Bandt discuss climate change, the cost of living crisis and the Voice.
New Zealand is considering a plan to tax methane from cows. But while cows and cars both emit greenhouse gases, they don’t have the same impact over time.
As we modernise Australia’s power grid, we should look to superconducting cables to save energy, cut emissions and future-proof the system
The cost of sustainability is no longer a deal breaker for some business owners, but more can be done to encourage decarbonisation efforts.
The UK space launch failed but it succeeded in releasing hazardous pollutants to multiple layers of the atmosphere.
The UK is focusing on carbon capture and storage technologies but the future is uncertain.
Already lacking the means to decarbonise their industry or turn to greener alternatives, poor countries could also be deprived of revenues from exports to Europe.
New research suggests it will be next to impossible to limit global warming to safe levels without relying on technologies to directly remove carbon from the air.
Millions of dollars have gone into California’s forest carbon offset program – with little new carbon storage to show for it, a new study suggests.
Tangible solutions would reduce livestock methane emissions, while also improving productivity and livelihoods.
Despite claims that lowering speed limits will harm the economy, evidence suggests journey times are hardly affected. And beyond reducing the road toll, there are health and climate benefits, too.
Constructing and running buildings accounts for roughly a third of global energy use and emissions. So it’s alarming that a report to COP27 shows the sector is veering off course for net zero by 2050.
A new study emphasises the huge potential and environmental benefits of hemp production and provides a road map to develop the nascent industry across the UK.
Sponsorship from fossil-fuel companies is worth millions to Australian sport. But growing opposition from the public and athletes themselves may force sports to rethink these deals.
The energy-intensive process of producing cement and concrete contributes significantly to global warming while depleting resources. Much more sustainable alternatives are being developed.
The oceans bordering West African countries are in grave danger from pollution; checking further degradation is crucial for human survival.
Vast amounts of digital data is stored on computer servers and never used.
The key to reducing green hydrogen costs in the future lies mainly in technological improvements.
