Sydney Knitting Nannas and Friends wants the NSW government to change the status of gas from low to high-emissions energy. Kathy McKenzie reports.

PM Scott Morrison said Australia would achieve net zero by 2050 ‘the Australian way’. It is pure spin, argues Petrina Harley.

The climate science says we are running out of time to avoid climate catastrophe but, as Friends of the Earth says, this COP26 did not deliver what was needed.

COP26 identified the worst polluter culprits, ranking Australia worst in the world for climate policy. Gideon Polya looks at why.

Cattle and sheep are blamed for contributing to greenhouse gases, belching out methane, and farmers in the future are likely to be taxed because of it. The recent Green Left Weekly climate change liftout [issue #1078] calls for a drastic reduction in sheep and cattle numbers. There is a TV advertisement, urging people to “go vego to save the planet”. This is a gross misunderstanding of the ruminant carbon cycle.
