Right now, the world is moving too slowly, on track for 2.7 C of warming by 2100, far short of the 1.5 C goal that’s in the Paris Agreement. There’s no longer time for niceties. We need a climate tech startup that’s going to throw its weight around and force evolution on sclerotic governments and companies.
The Albanese government has passed its climate bill through the lower house with a number of amendments. The new bill locks in a 43 per cent emissions reduction by 2030 and net zero by 2050 which is an update to Australia's obligations under the Paris Agreement.
Cawthron Institute has partnered with Westpac NZ Government Innovation Fund, Port Nelson and forestry company OneFortyOne to launch a seagrass restoration project that aims to fight climate change and improve ecosystem health.
Australia’s fast-emerging climate tech industry has received a $100 million booster shot from Qantas employees’ superannuation fund and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, helping it remain immune to the malaise infecting the broader technology sector.
Thousands of kilometers of shoreline would qualify as cost-effective candidates for mangrove forest and coral reef restoration, thanks to their ability to reduce flooding, new research shows.
For decades, carbon markets have been seen as part of the solution to climate change. They have mostly been dominated by the private sector, but this will soon change
Australian electric vehicle charging firm JOLT Charge and Endeavour Energy have partnered in a plan to install up to 1000 electric vehicle chargers in Sydney, as the electricity network provider positions itself to capitalise on an expected rise in zero emission vehicles.
The dam at Mt Keith is a leading global example of “mineral carbonation”, a chemical reaction triggered when the mine’s magnesium-rich wastes interact with air, leading to carbon dioxide being sucked out of the atmosphere and locked away in secure mineral crystals.
Giant Leap has become the first VC fund in Australia to set a minimum emissions reduction target for climate technology investments.
Climate change connects crucial Australian interests, and we are the developed country that has most to lose from climate disruption.
A new study illustrates how geoengineering doesn’t just turn back the clock on climate change, it alters the climate in new and perhaps profound ways
Climate tech has seen the biggest gain since its last run-up and subsequent bust in the early 2000s, according to a new report Silicon Valley Bank provided exclusively to Axios
It’s easy to feel pessimistic when scientists around the world are warning that climate change has advanced so far, it’s now inevitable that societies will either transform themselves or be transformed. But as two of the authors of a recent international climate report, we also see reason for optimism.
Carbon capture can help both reduce the carbon footprint of certain industries and, uniquely, remove legacy carbon from the atmosphere; even the most ambitious emission-reduction scenarios maintain a share of fossil fuels usage, suggesting carbon capture solutions are needed to achieve full decarbonisation.
UN scientists are likely to weigh up technology to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, as they gather to finalise a key IPCC report.
Up to 80 per cent of the carbon credits issued by Australia’s clean energy regulator are flawed, leaving buyers holding “sham” assets that have failed to reduce the nation’s carbon burden, says Andrew Macintosh, the Abbott government’s former chair of a key market oversight integrity committee.
Society will need a variety of tech solutions – that will help mitigate, adapt to, and understand climate change – in order to respond effectively to the climate challenge
Avarni is developing a new format to report the Scope 3 emissions of Qantas.
Avoided deforestation’ projects do not represent genuine abatement, say researchers who liken the Coalition policy to ‘cheap tricks and hot air
