New research shows global CFC emissions are declining
New research shows global CFC-11 emissions, which unexpectedly and concerningly began to rise in 2013, are lowering once again.
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.
Carbon dioxide levels over Australia rose even after COVID-19 forced global emissions down. Here’s why
Throughout the pandemic, atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO₂) levels continued to rise. Our scientists at the Cape Grim Baseline Air Pollution Station explain why.
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.
Australian shipping emissions identified
Ship engine exhaust emissions make up more than a quarter of nitrogen oxide emissions generated in the Australian region according […]
