Speedy charging driving a global boom in electric cars
Without a whisper or a whiff, electric cars seem to be gaining ground in the UK and elsewhere.
According to Ecotricity, the company that has installed a network of charging stations along the UK's motorways, we are seeing a "revolution".
Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders indicated that electric car sales have now topped the 10,000 mark in the UK.
As well as government incentives that have cut ownership costs, a key development is the roll-out of a network of superfast chargers at motorway stations.
Over the past year, Ecotricity say they have installed around 170 of these units, covering 90% of the network.
Coral munching bumphead fish give insight into conservation
Life is tough if you're a blundering, buck toothed, bumphead.
You're far, far bigger than all the rest of the parrotfish in the Pacific.
Science minister has tough job to follow
As the youngest member of the Cabinet, Liz Truss will be welcomed by many as marking a distinct change from the divisive Owen Paterson.
Mr Paterson's views on climate change, genetically modified foods and especially the badger cull earned the deep distrust of environmental campaigners while generating support among farmers.
Is Obama's climate 'regime change' unstoppable?
"It is not just about disappearing polar bears and disappearing ice caps," said Gina McCarthy, head of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as she outlined the heavily-trailed Clean Power Plan proposal.
Cutting carbon emissions by a third by 2030, she said, was about "protecting our health and protecting our homes".
US set 'to take very significant step' on climate
President Obama is set to unveil the most significant American attempt yet made to curb carbon dioxide emissions when he announces new restrictions on existing power plants on Monday.
The president is likely to endorse a set of rules drawn up by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that will seek to limit emissions from 1,600 existing facilities that are responsible for about a third of US CO2 emissions.

The IPCC, Elvis and the elephant in the room
Everywhere you go in Berlin there are nostalgic echoes of the past - in the shadow of the wall's remnants, old Trabants take tourists on nostalgic car rides to times long gone.
And at the conference centre where IPCC delegates have been ensconced for a week deliberating on how to save the world from dangerous climate change, other ghostly voices have been making their presence felt.
Climate report: Creating a sense of urgency or alarm?
The cool blue cover of the latest IPCC report on the impacts of climate change belies the rather hot stuff within.
Perhaps taking inspiration from their neon loving Japanese hosts, the report is heavy with reds, greens and yellows.
Climate report aims to blossom in Japan
Haiku, high towers and the scent of cherry blossom all come into play as government officials and scientists discuss the global impacts of climate change.
"There are no strangers under the cherry blossoms," said Mr Nobuteru Ishihara, Japan's minister for the environment, as he welcomed members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to what's likely to be a fractious session here in Yokohama.
Taking the war out of global warming
I once had a dream (or was it a dram?) in which the things we thought we knew for certain about the world were suddenly turned upside down.
In this strange universe, the cold war seemed to suddenly return, Ireland began to perform consistently at rugby, and arch-climate sceptics began to believe in dangerous levels of global warming.
