Melbourne's wild January weather explained
Hailstorms in summer, and sub-20-degree days closely followed by plus-40-degree days. Is it a harbinger of our changing climate, a response to some major atmospheric unrest, or just a series of unfortunate events?
Zeroing in on climate change
More and more, companies are adjusting to the risk of climate change and incorporating carbon neutral plans. Are you one of them?
Bushfire smoke and your health
Melbourne is again blanketed in smoke from bushfires, but the health implications from it may not be known for years.
How to reduce your festive footprint
Plastic packaging, damaged decorations, gift wrapping, food waste – trailing the Christmas celebrations is a mountain of rubbish. What can we do to limit it?
Protecting our protected areas
Conservation sites are being compromised by commercial and population growth, putting pressure on ecosystems and threatened species.
Episode 3: The Mess We're In
We’re not going to recycle our way out of this one. It takes awareness and education to change our behaviours surrounding waste. Find out what you can do.
Episode 1 : Trash Talk
Susan Carland is joined by researchers and behaviour change experts from BehaviourWorks Australia – together they talk global waste.
Where there's a will...
Rather than reacting when disaster strikes, there's plenty we can do to prevent catastrophic bushfires.
Early bushfires a scary sign
The NSW and Queensland fires are unprecedented in terms of seasonality, and ominous for the summer ahead.
ClimateWorks: Leading the way to global emissions reductions
In its 10th anniversary year, ClimateWorks continues to lead the way for real-world emissions reductions. ClimateWorks CEO Anna Skarbek works with a diverse range of industries with the aim of achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
On the frontline of climate wars
As CEO of the Climate Council, Amanda McKenzie is on the frontline of the climate wars between those who accept the science and urgency of climate change, and those who don't.
Tracking corporate net zero pledges
Some of Australia's biggest property companies are making ambitious emissions-reduction pledges – but how well are they really doing?
Overcoming the hydrogen hurdle
A water electrolysis breakthrough has huge potential to make hydrogen generation more economically viable.
A call for action, from Townsville to Tuvalu
A new report says policymakers need to address the impact of environmental changes on health in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
Digging deeper on the Amazon fires
Some of the claims regarding the blazes need to be put into context. It’s not the number of fires, but rather the cumulative destruction that rightly has the world worried.
What lies beneath
The fires in the Amazon are already a major threat to the environment, and a potentially bigger disaster awaits below the ground. Could we reach the tipping point for climate change?
Turning plastic into fuel
With China no longer accepting Australian waste, an innovative home-grown solution is planned to turn plastic and used tyres into fuel.
Reinventing how the public service works
Public servants are eager to become innovative public problem-solvers, but their leaders are standing in their way.
Nuclear power versus renewables
Is nuclear energy the right technology for the transitioning Australian energy market?
Meat substitutes and alternatives might play a positive role but they aren't going to save the planet.
Greening up the health sector
Work is under way on how to best teach our future health workforce about environmental sustainability and its impacts.
Reframing our future technology fears
Don’t worry, your self-driving car won’t kill you – as long as research focuses on people and society, too.
Why old-school climate denial has had its day
Ten years ago, politicians would routinely voice disdain for climate science. Now, while the policy debate remains fierce, the battleground has shifted to economics and jobs.
'New low' for journalism?
Lack of scrutiny of the Coalition, a barrage of criticism aimed at Labor; News Corp's coverage of the election campaign has been the definition of partisan.
