In the next two weeks, leaders of developed countries can show they are serious about climate by ending their financing for coal mines and power plants abroad. Will they do it?
I've been an environmentalist for 25 years now... Some people might think I'm a bit of a fanatic. Jeremy Clarkson would, no doubt, belittle my desire for a greener, healthier world for this and future generations by saying I'm an 'arty-farty, Lycra-clad cycling leftie-weftie who knits his own muesli' - or, more likely, would just punch me in the face. But I don't care. Because I know that unless every one of us does our bit (and is clearly told what 'our bit' is), we face a very unpleasant future.

This hard reality creates the need for business and the conservation community to come together in concerted action.
The government deserves some credit for having provided clarity on the funding available to renewable energy projects out to 2019. But delaying its acceptance of the Fourth Carbon Budget any longer is bad for business, consumers and the UK's energy security alike.
If you ask any non-wrestling fans about wrestling, the three wrestlers they are most likely to mention are Hulk Hogan, the Undertaker and Ultimate Warrior. The intensity of his character twinned with his brightly coloured face-paint and trunks made him an unforgettable international presence.
“If you really want the biggest bang for your buck, do something self-destructive, get exiled and still come back to headline
You may have seen apocalyptic headlines in the press recently. Headlines warning that climate change will be felt 'on all continents and across the oceans', and that the world faces a 'violent, sicker, poorer future'. Well stay with me, and I'll explain why we might not be facing 'apocalypse now'.
