  • The Rationale for Accelerating Regionally Focused Climate Intervention Research

    Abstract Ten years ago, Paul Crutzen asked whether the time had come to consider undertaking research into intentionally intervening in the climate system so that it might be considered a policy option comparable to reducing emissions for limiting human-induced climate change. Crutzen’s article pointed out how little progress had been made in reducing emissions and suggested that ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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. Allen & York are market leading environmental recruitment specialists with 15 years experience and an expanding Energy team ...

  • 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 and Wealth Creation

    Sir Richard Branson, Chair of the Virgin Group of companies, was once quoted as saying “Climate Change is the biggest wealth creating opportunity of our generation”. He is probably right. Every environmental problem, challenge or risk factor carries with it the potential for solutions, and those solutions often have the makings of a business opportunity. That is ...

  • Heat waves and climate change

    There has been a remarkable run of record shattering heat waves in recent years, from the Russian heat wave of 2010 that set forests ablaze to the historic heat wave in Texas in 2011 and the Summer in March in the U.S. Midwest in 2012. These events typify the ongoing trend driven by climate change. Climate change is already affecting extreme weather. The National Academy of Sciences reports that ...

  • Adapting to climate change

    This assessment addresses climate change vulnerabilities and adaptation (1). Global climate observations, science and physical impacts as well as mitigation — the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions — are covered in separate analyses (2). To achieve the EU's objective of limiting the global temperature increase to 2 °C above pre-industrial levels, global GHG emissions need ...

  • Regional climate change and adaptation

    Spanning the centre of continental Europe, the Alps play a crucial role in accumulating and supplying water to the continent. Recognised as the 'water towers of Europe', the mountains host most of the headwaters of the rivers Danube, Rhine, Po and Rhone; as such, they deliver vital ecosystem services both within and beyond the region, underpinning social and economic wellbeing in vast lowland ...

  • Changing the Business Climate in 2015

    The business of climate change has changed. Six years ago, when an international climate treaty in Copenhagen seemed distinctly possible, there was still a discernible gap between the concept of a low-carbon global economy and the capital market’s ability to deliver it. Nascent and costly clean energy technologies, skepticism of climate science and a still deeply-embedded reliance ...

  • 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 ...

  • Climate change connections

    MY son has a friend whose mother loves him very much. She loves him so much that she is terrified, absolutely terrified, that something might hurt him. Because she loves him so much and is so afraid that something bad might happen to him, she seems determined not to let anything happen to him. He is not allowed to take city buses, go to his high school football games or ride his bike in the city ...

  • Assessing the impact of projected climate change on drought vulnerability in Scotland

    Although Scotland is relatively water resource rich in a UK and European context, water resource scarcity can occur during exceptional dry periods such as those experienced in North West Scotland during July 2012. Precipitation and flow anomaly indices have been recently developed and introduced operationally by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, in order to assess the severity of dry ...

  • Simulating streamflow and the effects of projected climate change on the Savage River, Maryland, USA

    The Savage River in western Maryland and its associated reservoir and watershed serves many purposes including recreation, drinking water supply, and auxiliary water supply for Washington DC. Streamflow on the Savage River was modeled using a simple hydrologic model and validated with historical streamflow observations. Future projected climate data were used to drive the model to assess the ...

  • Climate change and watershed mercury export: A multiple projection and model analysis

    Future shifts in climatic conditions may impact watershed mercury (Hg) dynamics and transport. We apply an ensemble of watershed models to simulate and evaluate the responses of hydrological and total Hg (HgT) fluxes from the landscape to the watershed outlet and in‐stream HgT concentrations to two contrasting climate change projections for a watershed in the southeastern Coastal Plain of the ...

  • The impact of projected changes in climate variability on the reliability of surface water supply in Scotland

    Projected changes in precipitation and evapotranspiration under climate change and their impacts on the reliability of six water storage reservoirs and two river intake schemes in Scotland are examined. A conceptual rainfall–runoff model was used to simulate catchment runoff which, together with evapotranspiration, served as inputs into a reservoir model. Outputs from a regional climate ...

  • EU action against climate change

    Climate change is happening. The February 2007 science report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shows that the world has warmed by an average of  076º Celsius since pre-industrial times and the temperature rise is accelerating.  Sea levels rose almost twice as fast between 1993 and 2008 as during the previous three decades.  Man made emissions of greenhouse gases ...

  • 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 ...

  • Adaptation of transport to climate change in Europe

    Climate change threatens to compromise transport services that are indispensable for Europe's economy and society Transport remains a critical support system for the smooth functioning of our societies and economies. It facilitates accessibility of services that are vital for business and for the quality of life of citizens. It also enables economic growth and job creation. Gradual ...
