3 strategies to beat climate change
Try Dashlane here: http://dashlane.com/simonclark Get 10% off now with my promo code: simonclark ! In a video that is guaranteed to not be controversial, I propose three points we should focus on in the fight to stop climate change. This is largely based on my read of the Global Status Report (6), the document produced by REN21, and my time in Berlin at the REN21 Academy. My video at the REN21 academy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmX_SOaIV-o Why climate change (so far) is irreversible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dC7A9FHLreI The renewable energy transformation is the most important part of any plan to bring down carbon emissions and stop climate change. In this video essay I discuss how we can best move from fossil fuels to renewable energy like solar, wind, geothermal, and hydro power. Not just in electricity generation but also in other sectors: transport, and heating. Please share this video far and wide. This is the moment in history where we must make the sane decision, economically, politically, and socially, to take a stand against global warming. There is no time for politics or petty arguing. We know the science. We know what we must do. Let's get on with doing it. REFERENCES/FOOTNOTES (1) This summary is taken from The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars by Michael Mann.

Climate Change Adaptation: it's time for decisions now | GIZ
"We know enough about climate change -- It's time for decisions now!" Animated film. Length: 5'42" The impacts of climate change destroy people's livelihoods and homes. They damage our infrastructure and disrupt communication and trade. Moreover, climate change is endangering development successes and the poor and marginalized are often affected the most. Even if we were to stop emissions instantly, the world would not stop warming immediately due to the amount of gases we have already emitted. That's why we must do both: reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to inevitable climate change. But how can we adapt, considering that the precise extent and form of climate change aren't known?

How Bangladesh has adapted to climate change | The Economist
Bangladesh is highly susceptible to climate change. Floods, cyclones and droughts are likely to increase as the Earth warms. Poor farmers are already trying to adapt. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.st/2Hea5EK Melting glaciers, droughts, rising sea-levels - these are just some of the environmental disruptions that are likely to worsen with climate change. But dangerous climate change is not just something that might happen in the future. The earth is already warmed by almost 1 degree Celsius since the dawn of the Industrial Age - the effects are already being felt now. Vulnerable communities are trying to adapt. Bangladesh is more at risk from climate change than almost any other country. It's prone to flooding, cyclones and drought. Climate change may already be exacerbating those things. Bangladesh sits at the bottom of a Delta plane were three main rivers converge. It's straddled by the melting Himalayan glaciers in the north and the rising waters of the Bay of Bengal in the south. That makes it highly susceptible to flooding. In 2009, cyclone Aila tore through Bangladesh, uprooting trees, flattening homes and destroying crops. Along the southern coastal regions the storm left behind salty water in areas it had inundated. Fields that had once support agriculture were deemed useless. To adapt to their newly saline environment, locals have had to change their source of food production. Through a project funded by the World Bank villagers have switched to raising crabs which thrive in saltwater. Villagers rear the crabs and sell them at a local market where they're then resold by buyers who shipped them to Dakha. Adding to this problem, in some areas farmers deliberately inundate their lands with salty water so they can farm shrimp rather than crops, which is more profitable but problematic for the environment. But the salinity creates another daunting problem - it pollutes local groundwater and makes it more difficult to access safe drinking water. Climate change is worsening this effect. Cyclones are more common, river flow has diminished, and salty water from the Bay of Bengal has been reaching ever farther into the coastal lands travelling up rivers and polluting freshwater supplies that are used for drinking and irrigation. NGOs working with the Community Climate Change Project has sought to address this problem. They've provided water tanks so locals can harvest rainwater and have helped fund a desalination plant that provides clean drinking water. In the north of the country, local livelihoods have also been threatened by water. Many villagers are beholden to the rivers. When the rivers flood, the soil used for agriculture has disappeared. Not only have they lost their homes and their crops but also their means of survival. In Ranpur, villagers have learned a new farming technique that works on sandbars or chars where all the soil has been eroded. Farmers dig out holes in the char fill them with compost and plant pumpkins. Pumpkins are preserved and can be sold during the rainy season providing income throughout the year. Adaptation projects such as the ones being carried out in Bangladesh have had a huge impact on those involved but Bangladesh is not the only place where the effects of climate change are already being felt and adapted to. Rotterdam is building floating pavilions to pilot a city that rises with its sea levels. London will improve the Thames Barrier so it can better protect the city from floods. A decade ago adaptation was almost taboo in international discussions about climate change because it was believed to distract attention from the vital task of stopping global warming altogether. Now those are recognized as important. But can keep them in poor countries like Bangladesh adapt quickly enough? We don't know yet. Richer countries are better able to withstand the potential shocks that climate change will bring. If change is slow enough, it gives people more time to act and increases the odds of success. World leaders tend to talk about stopping climate change. It would help poor farmers enormously if it could only be slowed down. Daily Watch: mind-stretching short films throughout the working week.

ESA and climate change
Climate change is high on the global agenda. To tackle climate change, a global perspective is needed and this can be provided by satellites. Their data is key if we want to prepare ourselves for the consequences of climate change. While our Earth Explorers gather data to understand how our planet works and understand the impact that climate change and human activity are having on the planet, the European Union’s Copernicus Sentinels provide systematic data for environmental services that help adapt to and mitigate change. The video offers an overview of how European satellites keep watch over our world. It includes interviews with Josef Aschbacher, our Director of Earth Observation Programmes, and Michael Rast, our Earth Observation Senior Advisor. ★ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/ESAsubscribe and click twice on the bell button to receive our notifications.

Explaining Climate Facts - 3/3 - Adaptation & Mitigation
Episode 3 – Adaptation and mitigation (Subtitles available in English) More information on the GreenFacts website: http://www.greenfacts.org/en/digests/climate-change.htm Climate change has already had clear impacts on natural and human systems. Over the coming decades, based on the various scenarios of emission of greenhouse gases, the range with which climate can change is quite wide, and depends on policy decisions that we take now. The risk of negative impacts results from the interaction between the climate-related hazards and the vulnerability and exposure of both natural systems and human populations. The precise level of climate change that would trigger abrupt and irreversible change remains uncertain, but the higher the global temperature gets, the more risk there is. How can we, as individuals, contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions? As individuals we can substantially lower our carbon footprint and emissions by changing our lifestyle : diet habits, reducing food waste, and modifying our consumption patterns such as our demand for mobility and modes of transportation, energy use in households, and choosing longer‐lasting products. Such changes in behaviour may improve energy efficiency by up to 20 to 30 % already in 2030 and in developed countries, by up to 50% by mid‐century. The decisions and actions that are taken now will have a long-lasting impact on the climate. At a political level or in our daily lives, we can make a difference.

The side of climate change we must debate: how do we adapt | Jessica Hellmann | TEDxMinneapolisWomen
There is a part of climate change that we are not debating and developing enough, and it's called "adaptation." Though we know how to stop climate change (and we should), we do not yet know how to live with it. So that humans and other living things can survive--and perhaps thrive--in a changing climate, we need a generation of adaptation doctors to develop therapies and strategies that treat the climate change disease. Jessica Hellmann is the director of the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota, an internationally recognized organization working to solve grand environmental challenges. Her research led an important paradigm shift in ecology and natural resource management by showing that living with climate change is just as crucial to the future of humanity and Earth’s ecosystems as slowing and stopping greenhouse gas emissions. Hellmann regularly counsels with a variety of government and corporate organizations, is a frequent contributor to leading scientific journals, and is routinely called upon by leading media outlets like CNN, NPR, Fox News, The Telegraph and the Chicago Tribune to provide expert input on topics related to global change. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

PhD reviews climate change in Civ VI: Gathering Storm
In this video I put my PhD in atmospheric physics to use and review the climate change in Civ VI: Gathering Storm! I talk about the game's mechanics, the frequency of extreme weather events, and the knock-on effects on human behaviour in the game. In short, the game does a very good job, way beyond a crude depiction of global warming. Thanks to 2K and Firaxis for providing early access to the game! (1) See http://www.trillionthtonne.org/questions.html (2) As ever, SkepticalScience has your back: https://www.skepticalscience.com/Climate-Change-The-40-Year-Delay-Between-Cause-and-Effect.html (3) For a cool interactive report about how hurricanes have changed with anthropogenic climate change, see https://nca2014.globalchange.gov/report/our-changing-climate/changes-hurricanes (4) Note here that I'm talking about the mean 'waviness' of the jet stream, leading to more frequent and more intense outbreaks of Arctic air. The recent cold outbreak over North America was likely exacerbated by this effect, but not caused by it - the root cause was a SSW, which current science indicates was not made more likely due to climate change. (5) See e.g. http://oxfordre.com/climatescience/view/10.1093/acrefore/9780190228620.001.0001/acrefore-9780190228620-e-344 (6) Natural variability in the atmosphere is something of a politicized and so thorny topic. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hockey_Stick_and_the_Climate_Wars for an idea of why I didn't want to delve into this in detail. There are a few things which I didn't mention in the video because I recorded it in a great hurry. Here are three of them. Firstly the game only specifically addresses CO2 emissions rather than a multitude of gases such as methane - this is technically inaccurate but I can understand why they simplified it. Secondly I didn't talk about any quantitative aspects of X emissions equating to Y warming or Z sea ice loss as that would require a standardised unit of emissions in the game, which it doesn't provide! Besides, there's no reason to believe that all other geophysical parameters would be the same as our Earth, making any kind of quantitative analysis difficult at best (and, to be honest, not that interesting!). Lastly, arguably the most unrealistic part of the game is that all world leaders in it believe that climate change is a significant issue!

Mitigation to Climate Change
Climate change mitigation involves identifying ways to reduce heat trapping gas emissions, as well as finding ways to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Humans have many choices to reduce carbon dioxide and other emissions, and some local and state initiatives are showing some success. Still, says Tony Janetos, convening lead author of the National Climate Assessment’s Mitigation chapter, in order to meet the lower future emissions scenarios described in the report, it would require “very ambitious transformations of the energy economy.” To learn more about climate change impacts in the United States, go to NCA2014.globalchange.gov
