The lasting impacts of the recent bushfires reach far and wide. Watch A Different Lens to find out why we’re still seeing them.
Rewriting the climate story
Coronavirus and stimulus spending creates a golden opportunity for low-carbon transition.
Not drowning, waving – for now
COVID-19 has highlighted the cruise sector's lack of scrutiny, and questions remain whether it can regain the trust of the travelling public.
Coronavirus, and changing behaviour
A period of great upheaval can be the best time to embed new habits.
Most people don't realise that the stars are the reason for our existence, and we're learning more about them all the time.

Pope Francis is working to overturn centuries of tradition in the Catholic Church, unlike his predecessor, but his reformation project is a double-edged sword.
Episode 09: Right Here, Right Now
What should we do when confronted by right wing extremism in our daily lives? Our behaviour change expert shares the best strategies.
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?
A new technology for rechargeable batteries overcomes many of the problems with the ones we use today.
When the truth goes up in flames
The catastrophic bushfires have highlighted the connection between threats to the natural environment and the media environment, through which misinformation is spreading at a disturbing rate.
Turning e-waste trash into treasure
The World Economic Forum estimates e-waste to be worth US$62.5 billion annually, but only 20 per cent is recycled through appropriate channels.
Build it and they will (hopefully) come
Can Indonesia solve the problems of overcrowded Jakarta by building a new capital on the island of Borneo?
Preserving Indigenous languages

We usually speak of the sun setting in the west, but technically it only sets due west at the spring and autumn equinoxes.
Rethinking plastic to change the system
Although bans on single-use plastic products can be effective, we need to change our mindset on their value.
Overcoming the hydrogen hurdle
A water electrolysis breakthrough has huge potential to make hydrogen generation more economically viable.
Opioids – where to from here?
Opioids are among the most powerful analgesics available to medicine, but they have huge capacity to cause harm. In trying to solve one problem, is a bigger one being created?
