  • Meeting the climate change challenge

    I thank you for this kind introduction and for inviting me today. The Engineering Institute of Canada should be commended for hosting this event. I am here to outline some of the things that CSA is doing in the area of climate change. There is understandable uncertainty at the moment on the road Canada will choose to address this issue. However, there is more certainty about climate change itself ...


  • Thermodynamics of climate change

    Climate modelling is discussed from a thermodynamic point of view, using a control volume approach in which the environment and a superficial layer of the earth form the volume, concentric spherical shell of predominantly gaseous content with a thin layer of the earth. An energy equation that includes anthropogenic heat is suggested based on the mass balance of fossil fuel introduced into the ...

  • Resourcing for climate change

    Climate change is scientifically, widely recognised to be happening as a result of the anthropogenic input of greenhouse gases (GHG) into the atmosphere. Consequently we need to look at adaptation and mitigation to limit the social, environmental and economic impacts.

  • The Corporate Risk of Climate Change

    We all know climate change is happening. And we here at TriplePundit spend a lot of time making the business case for action. There are indeed many reasons for companies to respond to the threat. Those near the coast might face flooding, and those with production overseas could see disruption in supply. However, when it comes to reporting on this risk — there are few benefits to making the ...

  • Climate change, adaptation and water

    Impacts of climate change Observational evidence from all continents and most oceans shows that many natural systems are being affected by anthropogenic climate changes. The socio-economic impacts of climate change are significant: between 2000 and 2006, the frequency of disaster from extreme climate events worldwide increased by 187 per cent as compared with the previous decade, ...

  • Global climate change

    Qn October 12, 2007, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Al Gore for their efforts to develop and disseminate greater knowledge about climate change and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract climate change. In bestowirig the award, the Norwegian Nobel Committee noted: “Indications of changes in the earth’s ...

  • Climate change and human insecurity

    Recently, the question of link or the relationship between the global climate change and the level of economic activity becomes the major issue and comes to the focal point of research. In this study, we try to find out the linkage between environment and economic growth. Let us consider a certain level of income, up to which one may reasonably expect high green house gas-intensive income growth ...
