The importance of protecting forests – particularly old growth and tropical forests which act as carbon sinks- as a climate mitigation measure can hardly be overstated. Pricing the risks associated with not adequately protecting forests would underscore their value and is core to the scenarios development work Riskthinking.ai does.
We agree that it’s time for governments to take action on climate to avoid the worst consequences of disasters like the bushfires that hit Australia, but they need the right tools – like the scenarios tools developed by riskthinking. AI- to be able to properly assess and respond to climate related risks.
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.”
