An update on Australia’s climate trends finds the view unchanged: warming, driven by record CO2 emissions, will mean hotter days, warmer nights and more drought.
Business needs to know if emission reduction policies are part of a serious and enduring trend, or just a passing fad.
What’s the whole truth about climate change – and should we tell it?; plus wacky winters; nuclear winters; ‘Chasing Ice;’ and Jim Hansen.
As climate change grows more disruptive to daily life around the world, it’s more likely the faces of that disruption will be those of women.
Surging oil prices are having the same economic impact as a $190 carbon price, the merit order effect is killing gas in Europe, Chinese solar companies are losing billions; solar is nearly as cheap as fossil fuels; and our coal miners are crazy.
Australia remains wedded to a model of international climate action that is no longer credible.
Perhaps the most appropriate backers of Greenpeace’s anti-coal campaign should be our superannuation funds and the government itself. The risks from a global carbon budget and technological change are growing rapidly. Even the head of Tata Power says “why invest in coal.” But our miners don’t want to know.
Geoengineering gone crazy; natural gas a false hope; a painful primer at the pump; and Seuss on the loose, too.
The world’s oceans may be acidifying faster today from human CO2 emissions than during four major extinctions in the last 300 million years.
A new scientific report has tied polar ice melt to the extreme winters that have hit the US and Europe over the past two years.
