CSIRO climate scientists present to Royal Commission
Six key messages about climate change and natural disasters from CSIRO climate scientists, presented to the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements.
Novel interventions are more than a ‘cool idea’ for the Great Barrier Reef
The best scientific minds are applying novel interventions to help the Great Barrier Reef fight and adapt to climate change. From freezing coral larvae to shading and cooling measures, learn how we're hoping to help the Reef.
Capturing fugitive methane emissions
Three technologies that mitigate methane emissions, either by destroying the gas or capturing it, are gaining the attention of miners seeking to reduce their emissions.
A dry landscape and a dire season: we explain the current bushfire environment
Sydney and New South Wales (NSW) north coast residents continue to battle poor air quality as a result of fires burning through the state. Our bushfire expert Andrew Sullivan delves beyond the smoke haze to explain the current crisis and the tough conditions ahead.
Climate change and extreme events – quantifying the changing odds
The field of climate change event attribution research has emerged recently and can provide new insights into Australian climate extremes.
IPCC flags risks and response options for polar and ocean environments in latest report
A new report into polar regions, mountains, oceans and coasts shows the impacts of climate change on these sensitive areas are worse than previously thought, with implications for Australia.
When disasters collide: helping Australia adapt to new risks under climate change
A collision of severe weather events can destroy lives and infrastructure, destabilising economies and ecosystems. In a rapidly warming world the frequency and magnitude of these compound events will only increase, according to the latest report from the IPCC.
Eastern China pinpointed as source of rogue ozone-depleting emissions
For several years, emissions of CFCs have been rising, in apparent defiance of a global ban in place since 2010. A new global detective effort has traced the source to two eastern Chinese provinces.
