  • Climate change case study

    European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) commissioned a team of scientists to assess the change in vulnerability of EU Member States to infectious disease over the next fifty years as a result of projected changes in climate. Vose lead the modelling part of the project, developing a range of indices that allowed ‘heat maps’ to be produced showing regions down to ...

  • Betting Wrong on Climate Change

    Whether companies agree with the science of Global Climate Change or not, the business implications are too great are too great to be ignored. Climate Change will change how business is conducted and should be managed like any other strategic asset or liability on the corporation’s balance sheet. Trends Executives view Climate Change as having as much of an impact ...

  • A Climate Change Reality Check

    The world spent $50 billion dollars per year on weather-related disasters in the 1980s, according to the World Bank. Today, we spend roughly ...

  • Why Are CHP Closing All Over The World?

    Burning of coal nowadays has become a big problem. The main reason for this is a rapid increase of mankind. So, China burns half of coal in the world. Since 2000 the share of coal in world energy production has increased from 25 to 30%, and the Chinese economy is responsible for 82% of this growth. In Beijing, it is customary to use ...

  • Get more out of Water Resources Engineering Models

    The effort required to develop water resources engineering models can be significant. But once developed, in many instances the models are only evaluated for a limited, or a single set of conditions. The results and predictions obtained from these evaluations are the ones used in design, presented in reports and conveyed to decision makers and the public. This approach might serve ...

  • Climate change and wheat production in Argentina

    The aim of this work is to assess the impact of past and future climate changes on wheat productivity in the Pampas region of Argentina. The study was based on long-term climatic and crop productivity data, regional climatic scenarios and a crop simulation model. Our results demonstrate that the potential wheat yield has been declining at increasing rates since 1930 mainly due to minimum ...

  • Climate change a threat to sewage systems

    Many cities could face problems with their sewage in the future. A research study for Stockholm shows that a change in precipitation, combined with a population increase, could bring disruptions as early as the middle of the century. Climate change could put more pressure on the sewage systems in the future. Climate scenarios indicate critical factors such as increased volumes of rain and rising ...

  • Digging for data on Africa’s climate future

    The cardboard box is covered with a layer of dust so thick it must have been tucked away in this Kenyan basement for decades. The researcher wipes off the dust and rummages through the papers stored inside by someone long since retired. Sheet after sheet of neatly typed paper emerges, the faded rows of numbers detailing rainfall, temperature and wind speed. In a way, the researcher is hunting for ...

  • Reservoir management under predictable climate variability and change

    The potential effects of climate change on future water budget components and streamflow in the Mississippi River (Ontario) are assessed. Analyses of historic hydrometric data indicate an increasing trend in winter streamflows due to the rising winter air temperatures across the region over the latter half of the 20th century. These temperatures have resulted in reduced snow accumulation and ...

  • Endogenous Land use and the Ricardian Valuation of Climate Change

    The Ricardian technique uses cross-sectional variation in the capitalized value of climate in land to infer the agricultural costs or benefits of dynamic climate change. While a practical approach for predicting the consequences of global warming with readily available data, it may yield biased results when land-use decisions depend on the climate attributes being valued and when land has ...

  • A comparison of legislative climate change targets in the 110th congress

    The World Resources Institute’s analysis of emissions targets and cumulative emissions budgets attempts to objectively, fairly and accurately compare GHG reductions from explicit carbon caps and complementary policies contained in climate proposals submitted in the 110th Congress. Emissions from capped sectors are calculated based on the text of the respective legislation. For sectors that are ...

  • Freeze thaw cycles in Toronto, Canada in a changing climate

    Freeze thaw cycles are examined in Toronto Canada. Using data from 1960 to 1989 for three Toronto area weather stations, trends in freeze thaw activity, the relationship to mean monthly temperature and projections of freeze thaw activity are examined. For downtown Toronto the annual frequency of freeze thaw cycles is decreasing significantly, most notably in the shoulder months of October and ...

  • Trends of climate with rapid change in Sinai, Egypt

    This study presents evidence for rapid climate change in the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt. Analyses of data for temperature and rainfall from 1970 to 2014 show a clear tendency towards decreasing rainfall and increasing average temperatures. This trend caused severe droughts for many years that were suddenly interrupted by high and unpredictable rainfall that fluctuated heavily in space and time. If ...

  • Climate Change - Right response for the wrong reasons?

    Simple questions don’t always have simple answers. Why is our climate warming? Clearly the most popular answer lies in the theory that a rise in greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide is escalating the atmosphere’s insulating effect. We have Al Gore’s graph of CO2 increases to prove it, with recent years’ data climbing ladder high ...

  • Systematic monthly climate changes in the northern and southern hemispheres

    A new comprehensive analysis of the monthly surface temperatures published data in the northern and southern hemispheres is presented. Linear regressions between surface temperatures and CO2 concentrations at consecutive latitude geographical regions indicated that there is a systematic opposite global warming effect between mirror regions on the northern and southern ...
