Australia ’s apocalyptic bushfires earlier this year weren’t just unprecedented in their scale and ferocity —they weren’t even supposed to be possible yet. Over the last 20 years, the average percentage of Australia’s “temperate broadleaf and mixed” forests—lots of eucalyptus, basically—that burned each year was 1 percent.

Global methane emissions soar to record high

Mon, 20 Jul 2020 13:31:00 +0200technology (en)

Global emissions of methane have reached the highest levels on record. Increases are being driven primarily by the growth of emissions from coal mining, oil and natural gas production, cattle and sheep ranching, and landfills. Between 2000 and 2017, levels of the potent greenhouse gas barreled up....
