The coronavirus slowdown provides an opportunity to reset the economy to address climate change.
While we fixate on coronavirus, Earth is hurtling towards a catastrophe worse than the dinosaur extinction
The risks to nature from man-made global warming – and the imperative to act – are clear.
Arctic climate change – it’s recent carbon emissions we should fear, not ancient methane ‘time bombs’
The wet and low-lying East Siberian Arctic is likely to be a major methane source in the coming decades.
Arctic cod are key prey for seals, whales and seabirds. What happens when ship noise drives them away?
COVID-19 is the latest new infectious disease arising from our collision with nature.
The heatwave highlights the connectedness of our climate systems: from the monsoon tropics to the southernmost continent.
From a scientific perspective, the results are fascinating and world-first. From a personal perspective, what I saw will stay with me for a long time.
The coronavirus is devastating, but failing to tackle climate change because of the pandemic only compounds the tragedy.
New ways of ‘being together apart’ can work for us and the planet long after coronavirus crisis passes
Travelling to conferences and meetings has become a way of life for many of us – and has driven up emissions. Now COVID-19, not climate change, is forcing us to explore and develop alternatives.
In a rapidly warming world, temperature increases are a challenge to mental well-being. A group of economists quantified the relationship.
New research shows how deeply entrenched "us" and "them" attitudes make it much harder to make a fair energy transition.
Governments can staunch the current economic collapse without returning to the status quo.
Buildings grown by bacteria — new research is finding ways to turn cells into mini-factories for materials
Researchers are turning microbes into microscopic construction crews by altering their DNA to make them produce building materials. The work could lead to more sustainable buildings.
Water is essential for health, economic well-being and social equity, but too many people around the world still don't have access to clean drinking water and sanitation.
Half-a-dozen strategies are effective for cooling urban areas. Used in combination, these strategies can drop the temperature even more.
The policy response to COVID-19 has been dramatic, unlike the response to climate change, for several reasons. But it shows there's hope for real action on climate change.
From coronavirus to climate change, it's easy to be misled by some reporting.
It's common to encounter people who are misinformed, but don't know it yet. What's the best way to talk to someone else about what they think is true?
A move towards working from home, less air travel and prudent stimulus spending could flatten emissions growth in the longer term.
COVID-19 is showing us we must work collectively to put resilience alongside efficiency as the primary drivers for the systems we depend upon each and every day for food.
