TTIP aim to lift US oil export ban goes against climate targets

"Early this year US climate campaigners claimed a totemic victory when president Obama used his veto to block the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline. This proposed pipeline would carry dirty Canadian tar sand crude oil to refineries along the Gulf coast."

The UK must be at the centre of the fight to limit climate change

"In November, representatives from 196 countries will meet in Paris to try to agree a deal to prevent dangerous increases in global temperatures."

"Efforts to date aim to begin the “peaceful divorce” between greenhouse gas emissions and economic growth: no longer do the two need to go together. Last year was the first year where the world economy grew but greenhouse gas emissions did not. We wait to see if this is an indication of a broader trend or a blip."

I’m doing my bit to stop the sixth mass extinction – letting my garden go wild
Michele Hanson

"Depressing news. The earth’s sixth mass extinction is on the way, and it’s our fault. I could have told you that ages ago, which is why my friend Clayden and I have been doing our bit to avert it and are clinging to the last remnants of biodiversity by letting our gardens grow rather wild. It’s easy for me, because it’s my garden..."

Live Q&A: How can water systems prepare for 9 billion people?

"The world will face a 40% shortfall in freshwater by 2030, according to the UN’s 2015 World Water Development Report. If the estimation comes true, the consequences could be catastrophic. Food and energy production would suffer and people would be forced to move away from water-stressed areas. Conflicts could follow."

More evidence that global warming is intensifying extreme weather

"Just this week, a new article appeared in the journal Nature that provides more evidence of a connection between extreme weather and global warming. This falls on the heels of last week’s article which made a similar connection. So, what is new with the second paper? A lot."

GM wheat no more pest-resistant than ordinary crops, trial shows

"A major field trial of GM wheat that is designed to repel aphids has found the crop is no better protected against the pests than conventional wheat."

"The results come from two years of trials that compared aphid attacks on standard wheat plants with those suffered by a GM version modified to release a natural aphid repellant."

Six bright ideas for switching on sustainable energy for all

"Universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy is one of the proposed sustainable development goals (SDGs), but with 1.1 billion people having no access to electricity of any kind, and nearly 3 billion still relying on polluting and dangerous fuels such as kerosene and charcoal to cook and heat their homes, what will it take to make meaningful progress on achieving this goal? Six experts provide answers."
