Does replacing coal with wood lower CO2 emissions? Dynamic lifecycle analysis of wood bioenergy published in Environmental Research Letters
Research reveals that displacing coal with wood for power generation can make climate change worse for decades or more. Read more…
Linking models of human behavior and climate alters projected climate change in Nature Climate Change
This research combines social and climate modeling to reveal how interactions between perceived climate risks and greenhouse gas emissions influence projected climate change. The results suggest that policies emphasizing the attribution of extreme events to climate change and infrastructural mitigation may reduce climate change the most. Download the pdf.
After President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, hundreds of cities, states, and other entities committed themselves to reducing CO2 emissions in line with the Paris Agreement’s goals to limit climate change. We added up those commitments and put them on the map. This tracking effort was concluded in 2017.
Climate Interactive and the Internal Displacement Monitoring Center built a livelihoods and displacement tool for the Horn of Africa. When floods and droughts occur, pastoralists can lose their livelihood resulting in a displacement. This tool modeled that effect and could be used for humanitarian responses to disasters as well as evaluating climate impacts and development interventions. This project was concluded in 2016.
