Study analyzes how the Arctic drives Eurasian climate variability

In recent years, a cooling trend in Eurasia and a warming trend in the Arctic have been observed by various sources. The presence of a cause and effect relationship in this scheme has been much debated for a long time. Schematic view of multisphere interactions.

The year of climate change

The year in climate news Welcome to the latest edition of Climate Fwd: for 2021! Despite the bizarre state of limbo this year (as our friends at the Styles office described it), a lot has happened this year on the subject of climate change and the environment. We rounded highlights from our coverage here. It […]

Where’s the vaccine against climate change? It is not so easy.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who occasionally contemplates the similarities between the current pandemic and the greatest threat we face, climate change. Much of what has happened over the past few years has plunged me into spirals of desperation for the future, horrified by political venality and lack of global cooperation, or in […]

Can you solve climate change better than world leaders?

En-ROADS is fun (and depressing) to explore. Spoiler alert: the magnitude of the combined actions needed to keep warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius is quickly becoming evident. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. Users can grasp any combination of scenarios, from pricing carbon to reducing deforestation to electric vehicles to ending fossil fuel subsidies, and instantly […]

Africa cannot face climate change alone by Kristalina Georgieva & Félix Tshisekedi

Despite having played a negligible role in creating the climate crisis, African countries are already finding themselves paying the price. More creative and proactive forms of international support are needed to help African countries adapt and sustain progress towards broader sustainable development goals.

Why tornadoes are the hardest disasters to link to climate change

After tornadoes hit six U.S. states late last week, killing at least 88 people and razing warehouses, nursing homes and factories, many were quick to blame global warming for at least part damage. Over the weekend, numerous media speculated that global warming may have played a role and lobbied policymakers for answers. Deanne Criswell, the […]

Argonne scientists advance global climate models by embarking on two new field campaigns

Newswise – Campaign data will help improve the accuracy of weather and climate models. Climate projections suggest that rising global temperatures will increase the intensity of extreme weather conditions, such as droughts, hurricanes and heat waves. But when, where and how specifically these events will emerge is still uncertain. To better predict future changes, scientists […]

The man who predicted climate change

In late 1966, in the sprawling computer lab of the Washington, DC office building that housed the United States Meteorological Bureau, Syukuro Manabe was waiting for a print job to finish.

“An ESG framework should enable organizations to mitigate the risks associated with climate change”

Climate change has serious consequences for people and the planet. A robust industrial infrastructure, which aims to meet the demand of a growing population, places significant pressure on the environment and the resources available to us. Consequently, the role of industries in mitigating these climate risks will be critical and organizations must develop an ESG […]

Climate variability will increase in the 21st century • Earth.com

A new study published in the journal Earth system dynamics explored predicted future changes in climate and ecosystem variability. Scientists have found that in addition to causing changes in average temperatures and precipitation levels, global warming will also trigger the onset of more pronounced extreme weather events during the 21st century, ranging from mighty storms […]
