Governments must bring engineers to the table to combat climate change

Statement from Engineers Australia on the IPCC climate change study “The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report presents a stark and accelerating risk to all communities, impacting the current and future work of engineers.” “The findings further confirm what engineers are already grappling with heightened risks to our built environment and communities. All countries […]

Greening Australia and WWF-Australia announce new Climate-ready Restoration partnership[1] in response to increasing natural disasters

The partnership will experimentally test, validate and scale practical climate-ready restoration approaches nationally, designed by eminent scientists across Australia. In an example of just one of the series of innovative projects within the partnership, Greening Australia and WWF-Australia will employ eco-evolutionary approaches to identify ‘super seed’ that has enhanced climatic and fire-tolerant traits to replant […]

‘They just kept on rising’: data reveals alarming increase in greenhouse gases

If we are to reduce net carbon emissions to zero by 2050, we haven’t made a good start – governments, industry and individuals need to do much more, a new study shows. More greenhouse gases were produced in 2018 than any previous year, despite more than 20 countries reducing their carbon emissions since 2000, research […]

Guiding coal companies to meet the dual challenge of net zero and a just transition

As the build-up continues to the pandemic-delayed UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), all eyes – and hopefully all agendas – are on how to reach net-zero carbon emissions. And as the International Energy Agency (IEA) made clear in its recent Net Zero by 2050 report, this aim will fall short without a radical decrease this […]
