Australia risks becoming a ‘fossilised’ economy unless we take action on climate change without delay.
Economic studies on the costs of climate action share a common message: action on climate change is cheap, and delaying it will be costly.

Nearly half of 200 Australian species are threatened by climate change, according to new research, including the iconic mountain pygmy-possum.
Research by James Cook University was rapidly translated into policy that is helping to preserve Queensland’s regions against the effects of climate change.
It's rare for research to have an immediate impact on policy, but lessons learnt from a successful venture in Queensland can show how it can be done.
We cross the 2C threshold at our peril.

Increasing emissions from Canada’s oil and gas sector will make Canada’s post-2020 pledge very difficult to achieve.
This month Canada revealed its post-2020 climate target as 30% below 2005 levels by 2030. But current policies make it unlikely Canada will achieve the target within the country.

There is a way for governments to find out the consensus on global issues such as climate change. But it involves painstaking, complex work, and an end to the adversarial clash of competing ideologies.
Australia needs a better guardrail to stop emissions increasing.
While the recent emissions reduction auction in Australia was a success, much more needs to be done to build an effective climate policy.

California has been inundated with stranded, hungry sea lion pups, a result of warm waters causing fish to move.
The "warm blob" of remarkably warm water in the Pacific is changing weather patterns and impacting marine life, providing clues to how ecosystems may change in a warmer future.
Australia has committed to a long-term global average temperature increase to no more than two degrees Celsius – yet often envisions a future in which its is a major coal exporter.
When it comes to climate change and Australia's economic future, different crystal balls can produce vastly different results.
