Rajendra Pachauri describes the kinds of adaptations humanity must make to the changes already underway, including protection from flooding; preventing water scarcity; and retooling agriculture. Developed nations have a head start in these, and must help out developing nations, or risk global conflicts. Yet adaptation alone "cannot cope with all the projected impacts of climate change," says Pachauri, so greenhouse gas mitigation efforts are urgent.
Rajendra K. Pachauri leads fellow members of the Nobel Prize-winning IPCC in a remarkable public session of soul-searching. Now that the IPCC has helped make climate change a signal issue of our times, what next?
From Nicholas Stern's market perspective, climate change constitutes an "externality" that, like traffic grid lock in a city center, arises when some people's actions affect the welfare of others, at no cost to the perpetrators.
If you'd asked Ronald Prinn a decade ago whether human activity played a significant part in global warming, he would have given you an "equivocal" answer. Today, he is no longer straddling the line.
The hacking of emails from the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit in November rocked the world of climate change science, energized global warming skeptics, and threatened to derail policy negotiations at Copenhagen. These panelists, who differ on the scientific implications of the released emails, generally agree that the episode will have long-term consequences for the larger scientific community.
This panel offers some evidence that sustained alliances between academia and other organizations may help us more effectively address climate change issues.
MIT is working to solve many of the vexing challenges facing humanity. Amid increasing scientific evidence of global warming, MIT thought-leaders are focused squarely on climate change. On this challenge the Institute has work to do at home, according to a team of students working through MIT Sloan's Sustainability Lab. Team member Nick Hofmeister told correspondent Scott Rolph that even though MIT has an array of carbon-reduction opportunities, the famously decentralized Institute faces organizational hurdles. It's an illustration, says Hofmeister, that moving toward more a more sustainable enterprise is about more than identifying opportunities and calculating return on investment.
