Our previous post focused on a study indicating climate change can lead to a net decline in African agricultural productivity – at least for five major food staples, with maize being the most important. The study also showed that it … Continue reading
Climate change is just one driver of the Holocene-Anthropocene Mass Extinction. But it will be a powerful one, as global emission reduction commitments – that will be discussed in the following two weeks in the German city of Bonn during … Continue reading
In our previous article of the series we’ve looked at an overview of global sea level rise forecasts for the year 2100 – and seen that these forecasts have a very large spread, and also seem to increase with time … Continue reading
Let’s keep this one short, because in essence there’s nothing new. Before the start of the Paris climate summit we saw that if you combine all the world’s nations’ 2025 & 2030 emission reduction targets you get to a pathway … Continue reading
Today’s Graph of the Day has a really sobering message. Within four months of the crucial UNFCCC climate conference in Paris (‘COP21′) countries have submitted grossly insufficient emission reduction targets for the year 2030 – the target year for the … Continue reading

As for weather extremes, for the climate average too a smaller-chance-higher-risk range exists, as indicated by the light-blue climate model members to the right.
If we can’t bring actual emissions down to within the IPCC projections range – than why don’t we bend the spectrum upwards. It’s easier.
