Climate Scientist. Hi.

Climate Scientist

Sustainability is the investment opportunity of the year: Kurt Vogt, HSBC. We sat down with Kurt Vogt, Managing Director of Sustainable Financing at HSBC, to learn about the landscape of sustainable finance, and where the opportunities lie.

Sustainability is the investment opportunity of the year: Kurt Vogt, HSBC

HSBC hosted the second annual Sustainable Finance Briefing during Climate Week NYC on September 19, which focused on the latest developments in global climate finance and saw the launch of the Bonds & Climate Change: State of the Market 2016 report by the Climate Bonds Initiative. What are the barriers to investment in the low carbon economy and how can the market be reformed to scale-up climate finance? There are a couple of big opportunities I see to develop climate finance. Firstly, green investment opportunities, such as investments in energy efficiency, are often small scale and can be very fragmented. A mechanism to aggregate green projects would make it easier to do more business efficiently. Welcome - Steve Schein. Dr.

April 09 2014 | Research Reports New Commentary Urges Climate Scientists to “Set the Record Straight” We just published a commentary in Earth’s Future, a new online, open-access journal published by the American Geophysical Union.

Project on Climate Change Communication

The commentary is entitled: “Climate Scientists Need to Set the Record Straight: There is a scientific consensus that human-caused climate change is happening.” In the commentary, we argue that the climate science community needs to do more to communicate the scientific consensus because: (a) most Americans don’t know there is a scientific consensus on this point; (b) this lack of awareness undermines people’s engagement in the issue; and (c) research by our team – and others – has shown that simple messages that communicate this basic scientific conclusion are highly effective, especially with political conservatives.

We encourage you to download the commentary and join the effort to set the record straight. Continue reading Continue reading Continue reading Topics. Lex_1_Lecture_3_Videotranscript.pdf.

Assess the U.S. Climate. Scientific assessments are essential tools for linking science and decision making.

Assess the U.S. Climate

They survey and synthesize science, within and between disciplines and across sectors and regions. They highlight key knowledge that can improve policy choices and identify significant gaps that can limit effective decision making. Assessments also track progress by identifying changes in the condition of the Earth, changes in human response, and advances in science over time. Assessments have been integral components of USGCRP since our inception. We have a legal mandate to conduct a National Climate Assessment (NCA) every four years, the third and most recent of which was released in May 2014.
