Global warming leads to more rain – but little of the change occurs over land. An international team of researchers, led by Bjørn H. Samset at the Norwegian CICERO Center for Climate Research, used ten global climate models to study how precipitation changes when just one factor in the climate system was allowed to change at a time.
How much carbon can we still emit while keeping the rise in temperature below 1.5°C?
COMMENTARY: The carbon intensity is a useful indicator, but also fraught with difficulties. Depending on the data choices, the policy implications could be quite different.
Oil nations, those who allow major polluters to pollute and profit from the pollution, are increasingly finding themselves at the receiving end of lawsuits. The ongoing court case in Oslo is the latest example.
Global carbon dioxide emissions were almost flat for three years (2014-2016) bringing much needed optimism, but emissions are expected to increase in 2017.
