As scientists’ predictions of a climate emergency grow more urgent- and frankly bleak- the world would do well to heed their warnings. Yet it is always difficult to plan for futures that differ substantially from the recent past, and this is where a presentation of multiple future scenarios – underpinned by the latest climate science and wisdom of experts- can be tremendously useful. This is what riskthinking.AI offers
Due to global warming, the United States is today more than twice as likely to endure a devastating “dust bowl” scenario than during the Great Depression, researchers said Monday.
This is one of the many impacts of climate change-which in turn will have implications for food security and human settlements- for which Riskthinking.ai’s scenarios can help plan.
Within the Colorado River basin, management laws dictate how water is allocated to farms, businesses and homes. Those laws, along with changing climate patterns and demand for water, form a complex dynamic that has made it difficult to predict who will be hardest hit by drought.
Hurricanes have become stronger worldwide during the past four decades, an analysis of observational data shows, supporting what theory and computer models have long suggested: climate change is making these storms more intense and destructive.
Climate scientists use mathematical models to project the Earth’s future under a warming world, but a group of the latest models have included unexpectedly high values for a measure called “climate sensitivity.”
