Alaska's global warning
- The Heat Is On. Revkin, Andrew // Discover;Oct2010, Vol. 31 Issue 8, p38
The article, part of a section on scientific advancements in the 30 years leading up to 2010, focuses on global warming and human reaction to it, pointing out the apparent disinterest in acting on the issue.
- Climate change brings environmental burden. Sheffield, Thomas C. // Jackson Advocate;8/27/2015, Vol. 77 Issue 47, p5B
The article offers the author's insights in the effects of climate change and global warming for the environment, community, and economy.
- Human activities will warm surface temperatures 2...F by 2050. MacCracken, Michael C. // World & I;Dec97, Vol. 12 Issue 12, p158
Cites evidence that global warming has been strongly influenced by human activities. Global average surface temperature; Retreat of mountain glaciers; Rising sea level due to the addition of glacial melt-water; Humanly introduced aerosols; Increased concentrations of carbon dioxide and other...
- Implications of simultaneously mitigating and adapting to climate change: initial experiments using GCAM. Calvin, Katherine; Wise, Marshall; Clarke, Leon; Edmonds, Jae; Kyle, Page; Luckow, Patrick; Thomson, Allison // Climatic Change;Mar2013, Vol. 117 Issue 3, p545
Most research on future climate change discusses mitigation and impacts/adaptation separately. However, mitigation will have implications for impacts and adaptation. Similarly, impacts and adaptation will affect mitigation. This paper begins to explore these two veins of research simultaneously...
- Improving the assessment and valuation of climate change impacts for policy and regulatory analysis. Marten, Alex; Kopp, Robert; Shouse, Kate; Griffiths, Charles; Hodson, Elke; Kopits, Elizabeth; Mignone, Bryan; Moore, Chris; Newbold, Steve; Waldhoff, Stephanie; Wolverton, Ann // Climatic Change;Mar2013, Vol. 117 Issue 3, p433
An introduction is presented in which the editor discusses various reports within the issue on topics including the evolution of uncertainty analysis, issues related to the impacts of climate change, and role of climate change and environmental stresses in exacerbating violent conflicts.
- Modeling climate change feedbacks and adaptation responses: recent approaches and shortcomings. Fisher-Vanden, Karen; Sue Wing, Ian; Lanzi, Elisa; Popp, David // Climatic Change;Mar2013, Vol. 117 Issue 3, p481
This paper offers a critical review of modeling practice in the field of integrated assessment of climate change and ways forward. Past efforts in integrated assessment have concentrated on developing baseline trajectories of emissions and mitigation scenario analyses. A key missing component in...
- The Politics of Global Warming. Derr, Thomas Sieger // First Things: A Monthly Journal of Religion & Public Life;Aug/Sep2007, Issue 175, p17
The article discusses the politics of global warming. The author profiles several scientists and scientific studies that suggest that climate change may not be caused by carbon dioxide emissions over the last century. The author states that such information is often demonized as unscientific or...
- Developments in modelling of climate change-related migration. McLeman, Robert // Climatic Change;Mar2013, Vol. 117 Issue 3, p599
Climatic variability and change is known to influence human migration patterns. Researchers increasingly see migration as one of a range of potential means by which populations may adapt to the future impacts of climate change. Modelling of climate change-related migration is a relatively new...
- Confronting the challenge of integrated assessment of climate adaptation: a conceptual framework. Wing, Ian; Fisher-Vanden, Karen // Climatic Change;Mar2013, Vol. 117 Issue 3, p497
Key limitations of integrated assessment models (IAMs) are their highly stylized and aggregated representation of climate damages and associated economic responses, as well as the omission of specific investments related to climate change adaptation. This paper proposes a framework for modeling...
