A new paper co-authored by climateprediction.net team members shows changes such as bioenergy expansion have considerable influence on projections of temperature extremes. The motivation for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report of 1.5°C stems from the need to understand how the impacts of climate change may evolve for half a degree of global warming.

The world’s largest Earth and space science meeting – the AGU Fall Meeting – took place in New Orleans, Louisiana, from 11-15 December. Post-doctoral Research Associate Dr Sihan Li (Meredith) attended the meeting to give several presentations on behalf of the climateprediction.net project. Her presentation Changing frequency of flooding in Bangladesh: Is the wettest place […]
A new index of warming due to human influence on climate was released this week in the journal Nature Scientific Reports. It exceeded 1°C above mid-19th-century levels in 2017 and is rising faster than ever before, leaving little time to achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. “Global temperatures may be pushed up temporarily […]
Climate scientists, including climateprediction.net’s Dr Friederike Otto and Professor Myles Allen, are calling for an overhaul of the way climate change pledges are assessed, in order to avoid ‘indefinite procrastination’ on designing efficient mitigation policies.
