You know the world is ending when dicks start to take over entire beaches. No, I’m not talking about a penis havers-only nude beach. I’m talking about the fat innkeeper worm, or Urechis caupo if we’re talking sexy. The best version of its name, though, is penis fish because this worm looks like a fucking dick, man. And thousands of these pink uncircumcised dick lookalikes covered the shores of Drakes Beach at Point Reyes near San Francisco last week, leaving one man extremely puzzled.

I moved to Sydney less than five weeks ago and the city has been shrouded in smoke haze on and off since then. I joke this is my “Sydney hazing” but it’s only now – having worked on climate change for over a decade – that I’m suddenly feeling burnt out. This is not in any way to compare my experience to those who have lost their homes, communities and loved ones to the bushfires.
There was a stark juxtaposition outside of Sydney's Town Hall before Wednesday's climate rally: as thousands of protesters gathered in the hour preceding the event, a giant Christmas tree loomed over them while people dressed in clashes of red and green, some in Santa hats, hurried to seasonal parties and pub crawls.
The Green New Deal is a massive proposal that aims to take on the climate crisis—the greatest threat humanity has ever faced—while creating millions of jobs and boosting economic equality. That’s going to take plans for everything from electricity to housing to flood control, not to mention a fuckload of political will and, if it’s done right, a commitment to social justice and democracy. These changes are all necessary and urgent, but the scope is still enough to make you dizzy.
Climate change is altering conditions that sustain food production, with cascading consequences for food security and global economies. Recent research evaluated the simultaneous impacts of climate change on agriculture and marine fisheries globally.
Greenland’s melting ice sheet is the world’s single biggest contributor to sea level rise. In a new study, scientists used drones to show how water flows through cracks in the ice, which creates dramatic waterfalls—and could be making it more unstable.
It's long been documented that Australia's Great Barrier Reef is facing a tough time due to the effects of climate change and general human interference. New research suggests a radical new approach might be able to help its degrading coral cover and it involves mimicking the sound of a thriving coral reef using speakers.
Endesa is the largest electric utility provider in Spain and the country’s biggest corporate greenhouse gas polluter, emitting some 60 million tons of carbon each year. It’s also a sponsor of the United Nations’ international climate conference (known as COP25) that began in Spain on Monday.
Behind every climate strike, airport sit-in, or pipeline shutdown is a group of hard-working individuals who’ve made it their life’s mission to save the world. Some organisers are employed full-time by major environmental organisations; others may be contractors. Either way, they can attest that the work is never easy—and their employers don’t always give them the compensation they rightly deserve.
Summer is likely to start off hot and dry, according to the Bureau of Meteorology’s summer outlook, released today.
Sydney was swathed in thick smoke on Tuesday morning amid more than 50 bushfires on the state’s east coast, the Guardian reported.
