Survey: Biophysical Scientists on Climate Change

The climate change consensus extends beyond climate scientists. Abstract Excerpt: The existence of anthropogenic climate change remains a public controversy despite the consensus among climate scientists. The controversy may be fed by the existence of scientists from other disciplines publicly casting doubt on the validity of climate science.... [W]e report on a survey of biophysical scientists across disciplines at universities in the Big 10 Conference.... [Our] results suggest that scientists who are climate change skeptics are outliers and that the majority of scientists surveyed believe in anthropogenic climate change....

Experts discuss the IPCC 5th Assessment Report

Nicholas Stern Report

"Growth, Climate, and Collaboration: Towards Agreement in Paris 2015" discusses 4 key elements for a successful COP21:

  • The risks from unmanaged climate change are potentially immense and delay is dangerous.
  • The path to a low-carbon economy can be highly attractive, embodying strong and high quality growth, investment and innovation in the context of rapid global structural transformation
  • The agreement should be based on a shared commitment to creating “equitable access to sustainable development”
  • The agreement should be structured to facilitate dynamic and collaborative interactions between parties. Governments should not insist that an agreement be an internationally legally-binding treaty.

    Study: CO2 Emissions Affect Earth Sooner than Previously Known

    Short videos, access briefing & full text of "Maximum warming occurs about one decade after a carbon dioxide emission" published in Environmental Research Letters by researchers Caldeira & Ricke (Carnegie Institution of Washington in CA).
    From the Abstract: "[N]o previous study has focused on examining how long it takes to reach maximum warming following a particular CO2 emission.... [W]e find the median time between an emission and maximum warming is 10.1 years ... [which means] that benefit ... from avoided ... emissions will be manifested within the lifetimes of people who acted to avoid that emission."
