It’s ‘AGU Week,’ so the first of a series of onsite posts from the annual fall conference written by several regular contributors to The Yale Forum.
Abrupt climate change — and also associated abrupt ecological and economic impacts sometimes triggered by more gradual climate change — gets a renewed look from a National Research Council science panel, which recommends development of an ‘early warning system.’
This month’s Yale Forum ‘This Is Not Cool’ video explores scientific research raising questions about whether projections of sea-level rise in a warmer climate have been overly conservative.
Scientist Jim Hansen and a stream of co-authors throw the kibosh on the generally accepted view that a 2 degree C (3.6O F) warming would leave the world in good shape. They point to inevitable feedbacks and urge strong and [...]
Climate Central’s respected climate and weather writer and analyst Andrew Freedman dissects the ins and outs of the Philippines’ devastating Super Typhoon Haiyan and looks to what the future may hold. Reposted with permission.
