I’m a climate scientist – Labour’s green U-turn has left me hopeless

Keir Starmer should think long and hard about the consequences

Volcanoes across the globe are now erupting. Should we be worried?

With volcanic activity being reported everywhere from Iceland to Italy, should we be concerned that a catastrophic event is coming?

I thought the government’s plan to protect Britain from extreme heat would be bad. It’s worse than that

Politicians seem to have no idea of the action required if we want to keep a functioning society and economy

Labour’s oil and gas ban shows it’s ready to fight the next election on climate issues

While the Tories’ dire record on green issues gets worse by the day, Keir Starmer’s pledges show an impressive commitment

How could the UK’s net zero plan involve new oil and gas? It’s mind-bogglingly stupid

The Conservatives are cynically using carbon capture and storage as a get-out-of-jail card for the fossil fuel sector

Let’s face reality. Fossil fuel interests have destroyed the Cops – we need something new

It beggars belief that the UN thought it a good idea to allow an authoritarian petro-state to host an already compromised Cop28

The 1.5C climate target is dead – to prevent total catastrophe, Cop27 must admit it

Acknowledging that climate breakdown is unavoidable is key to making fossil-fuel companies and governments take action

The big takeaway from Cop27? These climate conferences just aren’t working

Rather than a bloated global talking shop, we need something smaller, leaner and fully focused on the crisis at hand

Why we should forget about the 1.5C global heating target

The goal of 1.5C by 2030 is arbitrary and now unachievable – yet working to prevent every 0.1C rise can still give us hope

Whether you’re a climate ‘doomer’ or ‘appeaser’, it’s best to prepare for the worst

While more extreme threats are unlikely to be realised, sticking to the precautionary principle is just plain common sense

The terrifying truth: Britain’s a hothouse, but one day 40C will seem cool

This extreme heat is just the beginning. We should be scared – and channel this emotion into action
