A major new report assessing the climate performance of 274 of the world’s highest-emitting publicly-listed companies finds that almost half (46%) do not adequately consider climate risk in operational decision-making.

Australia is on a path to being one of the worst contributors to the climate emergency if the pollution from its fossil fuel exports are factored in

"Weather is chaotic," said Melissa Lau, a sixth-grade teacher in this bedroom community outside of Oklahoma City. "What does that mean to you?"

Government to reward those who achieve neutral status

Carbon emissions from existing and planned fossil fuel energy plants and projects will exceed the amount needed to curb global warming, jeopardising a 1.5 degree Celsius temperature limit goal, sci

Renewable energy is a key solution and the most practical action tool to address climate change. With rapid uptake of renewables, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions would be about 70% lower than today, analysis by International Renewable Energy (IRENA) shows.

Australia’s share of global CO2 emissions from domestic use of fossil fuels was about 1.4% in 2017. Accounting for fossil fuel exports lifts Australia’s global carbon footprint to about 5%. This is equivalent to the total emissions of Russia, which is ranked the fifth biggest CO2 emitter globally.

Cement, responsible for 7% of global CO2 emissions’s contribution, is especially immense because of the chemical process required to make it

The last year has seen growing public concern and the formation of global movements pushing governments for serious action in the face of rising emissions and escalating climate impacts.

EU leaders will this week discuss setting a target of zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, European officials said on Monday, following elections that highlighted climate change fears.
