Global emissions are down by an unprecedented 7% — but don’t start celebrating just yet
The pandemic, along with other recent trends such as the shift towards clean energy, have placed us at a crossroad: the choices we make today can change the course of global emissions.
New research: nitrous oxide emissions 300 times more powerful than CO₂ are jeopardising Earth’s future
Agriculture is the dominant cause for the increasing N₂O concentrations. Emissions must be reduced if we hope to stabilise Earth's climate.
Turning methane into carbon dioxide could help us fight climate change
In a paper published today in Nature Sustainability, we propose a new technique to clean the atmosphere of the second most powerful greenhouse gas people produce: methane. The technique could restore the concentration of methane to levels found before the Industrial Revolution, and in doing so, reduce global warming by one-sixth.
