Climate anxiety: Psychological responses to climate change (Journal of anxiety disorders)Climate change will affect psychological wellbeing. Substantial research has documented harmful impacts on physical health, mental health, and social relations from exposure to extreme weather events that are associated with climate change. Recently, attention has turned to the possible effects of climate change on mental health through emotional responses such as increased anxiety. This paper discusses the nature of climate anxiety and some evidence for its existence, and speculates about ways to address it. Although climate anxiety appears to be a real phenomenon that deserves clinical attention, it is important to distinguish between adaptive and maladaptive levels of anxiety.
The human imperative of stabilizing global climate change at 1.5°C (Science)Climate change will be the greatest threat to humanity and global ecosystems in the coming years, and there is a pressing need to understand and communicate the impacts of warming, across the perspectives of the natural and social sciences. Hoegh-Guldberg et al. review the climate change–impact literature, expanding on the recent report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. They provide evidence of the impacts of warming at 1°, 1.5°, and 2°C—and higher—for the physical system, ecosystems, agriculture, and human livelihoods. The benefits of limiting climate change to no more than 1.5°C above preindustrial levels would outweigh the costs.
Tackling climate change with machine learning (ACM Computing Surveys)Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity, and we, as machine learning (ML) experts, may wonder how we can help. Here we describe how ML can be a powerful tool in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helping society adapt to a changing climate. From smart grids to disaster management, we identify high impact problems where existing gaps can be filled by ML, in collaboration with other fields. Our recommendations encompass exciting research questions as well as promising business opportunities.
Climate Change Knowledge Portal (World Bank)The Climate Change Knowledge Portal (CCKP) provides global data on historical and future climate, vulnerabilities, and impacts. Explore them via Country and Watershed views. Access synthesized Country Profiles to gain deeper insights into climate risks and adaptation actions.
Earth Overshoot DayEarth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year.
Net Zero ClimateThe world has a goal to reach net zero emissions. Our platform, informed by leading climate researchers and hosted by the University of Oxford, brings together principles and policies, practical tools, and progress tracking to help businesses and policymakers achieve that goal.
Project NeutralTogether, we can create a beautiful future powered by clean energy and a new generation of climate optimists. Climate change is real, it's a big deal and it's happening right now. It's causing bigger storms, it's affecting our economy and it's impacting our health. Together, we can take action on our climate impact and "be the change" that supports a pollution solution.
Talk Climate to MeTalk Climate to Me was born out of a desire to share information in a manner that is community-based and collaborative. We know that people trust the friends and influencers in their community for important information. This program is about giving women the tools to understand the crisis, share useful information, and unleash the power of social contagion. Project Neutral, a project of MakeWay’s shared platform, has set out to bring this experience to women across Canada.
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UN)The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. The IPCC provides regular assessments of the scientific basis of climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for adaptation and mitigation.
Canadian Institute for Climate ChoicesWe are Canada’s leading climate change policy research organization, producing the rigorous analysis and evidence-based recommendations that are needed to advance climate resilience, chart net zero pathways, and drive long-term prosperity. The strength of our work is rooted in our independence, in the diversity and depth of our staff, board and advisors in fields from climate mitigation to adaptation and clean growth, and in the breadth of the stakeholders and rights holders we engage through our research.
