The Growing Impact of Attribution Science in Climate Science

Credit to Author: Guest Contributor| Date: Sun, 12 Mar 2023 03:15:01 +0000

Attribution science, which is about understanding the role of climate change versus natural weather patterns and climate variability, can help us better understand the connections between extreme weather and climate change, provide new insight into what specific emissions are driving the worst impacts, and help shape climate solutions. Two types of climate attribution science — […]

One Earth climate solutions electric vehicles solar powerHuman society will not look the same in 2050 as it does today. We all know that. What we don’t know yet is how much it will be destroyed and disrupted by an out-of-control climate catastrophe. Various scientists and policymakers have tried to determine and show the best path forward to limit the catastrophe, to […]

Urban trees can suck carbon out of the air and help protect people from heat National Park Service, Public DomainAs I write this, it’s 83 degrees Fahrenheit in Washington, DC, and I can’t help but long for those years when I was a kid, when spring felt like spring and seasons were demarcated. Each year, summer-like temperatures arrive all too soon during spring, thanks to human-induced climate change. Research finds that even if we halt heat-trapping […]
