klimaforandringer

Latin: Sammensat begreb. Forandringer i naturens klima og vejr.
Herunder nutidens meneskeskabte klimaforandringer som først og fremmest skyldes:
1. industrialiseringens produktionsformer og produkter,
2. militarismens forbrug af fossile brændstoffer samt
3. landbrugets dyrkningsmetoder og forurening.
Se også: Istider ; klimaflygtninge ; klimasikring ; uvejr.

Banking on Climate Change 2019 - Fossil Fuel Report Card / : Alison Kirsch et al
Rainforest Action Network (RAN) et al..
https://www.ran.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Banking_on_Climate_Change_2019_vFINAL.pdf For the first time, this report adds up lending and underwriting from 33 global banks to the fossil fuel industry as a whole. The findings are stark: these Canadian, Chinese, European, Japanese, and U.S. banks have financed fossil fuels with $1.9 trillion since the Paris Agreement was adopted (2016–2018), with financing on the rise each year. This report finds that fossil fuel financing is dominated by the big U.S. banks, with JPMorgan Chase as the world's top funder of fossil fuels by a wide margin. In other regions, the top bankers of fossil fuels are Royal Bank of Canada in Canada, Barclays in Europe, MUFG in Japan, and Bank of China in China.
Accelerating extinction risk from climate change. / : Mark C. Urban Science 348 (6234), 571-573., 2017.
Current predictions of extinction risks from climate change vary widely depending on the specific assumptions and geographic and taxonomic focus of each study. I synthesized published studies in order to estimate a global mean extinction rate and determine which factors contribute the greatest uncertainty to climate change–induced extinction risks. Results suggest that extinction risks will accelerate with future global temperatures, threatening up to one in six species under current policies. Extinction risks were highest in South America, Australia, and New Zealand, and risks did not vary by taxonomic group. Realistic assumptions about extinction debt and dispersal capacity substantially increased extinction risks. We urgently need to adopt strategies that limit further climate change if we are to avoid an acceleration of global extinctions.
Assessing Impacts of Climate Change on Coastal Military Installations: Policy Implications. / : The Defense Technical Information Center, 2013.
The effects of climate change will adversely impact military readiness and Department of Defense (DoD) natural and built infrastructure unless these risks are considered in DoD decisions. Considerations of future climate conditions need to be incorporated into the planning, design, and operations of military facilities, as well as into the strategic infrastructure decisions facing the military Services and DoD as a whole. This paper discusses the policy context and technical considerations related to these issues, drawing on lessons learned to date from four studies funded by the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP). This paper focuses on coastal installations, but may inform the Department s overall approach to climate change.

Mellemøstens vandmangel skaber apokalyptiske scenarier og sender mennesker på flugt : Klimaforandringer og forværrede miljøforhold forstærker vandkrisen i Mellemøsten og risikerer at gøre dele af regionen ubeboelig ved århundredeskiftet. »Glem fremtiden,« siger en international ekspert: »Apokalyptiske scenarier i regionen udspiller sig allerede for vores øjne, og vi er ikke engang begyndt at tale om det« / : Waleed Safi.
