Just four of Australia's 20 biggest super funds still have no emissions reduction targets or commitments.
Clouds can act as both blanket and parasol – warming our atmosphere at the same time as cooling it. But which effect will dominate?

Few white evangelicals in the U.S. say they believe in human-made climate change. This strand of science denial seems to have as much to do with conservative politics as the Bible's teachings.
The report by the World Meteorological Organisation shows that with large and rapid emissions cuts, we can still avoid the most severe climate change. But worryingly, we also have time to make it far worse.

How speculation came to be presented as scientific fact and inspired a decidedly non-glacial race to discover the future of Himalayan glaciers.
Western solutions to Pacific Island issues often end in failure. These countries must build their autonomy to survive climate change.

New research has found the window of opportunity for hazard reduction burns won’t actually get smaller, but instead change seasons.
A new assessment found substantial warming is much more solidly assured than we thought.
In Australia, methane emissions from fossil fuels are rising due to expansion of the natural gas industry, whereas agriculture emissions are falling.
The "winners" evolved in the warm, subtropical regions. Those that evolved in cooler temperate ecosystems – the "losers" – risk becoming extinct.
Heatwaves have become longer, hotter and more frequent. This trend is accelerating from climate change.
The super fund for health workers plans to dump its shares in companies that mine fossil fuels. The super fund for university staff is a long way behind.
The study examined patterns of Twitter rage in hot and cold weather. Given anger spreads through online communities faster than any other emotions, the findings are important.

High temperatures, periods of increased relative humidity and more rainfall are likely to happen more in Nigeria's coastal region under future global warming.
Strict physical distancing restrictions have resulted in cleaner air, but atmospheric carbon dioxide levels continue to rise.
Despite clear air as a result of the pandemic reducing human activities, our emissions still soar.
All of Australia's 71 wine regions will become warmer this century. That means big changes for the industry. Tasmania, for example, may become better known for shiraz than pinot noir.

Older records can tell us a lot about Australia's pre-industrial climate, before the large-scale burning of fossil fuels tainted global temperature records.
Poverty and inequality affect the likelihood of your home overheating during heatwaves.

The new values are a worrying outcome that no one wants, but one we must still grapple with.
