Réchauffement climatique : les banques centrales face à leurs responsabilités. Les désastres économiques qu’il entraîne sont tout aussi patents : désertification, hausse des niveaux de la mer, perturbation des circulations océaniques, pollution, catastrophes dites « naturelles » [1], détérioration des santés publiques et des bien-être.

Réchauffement climatique : les banques centrales face à leurs responsabilités

Devant ces sombres perspectives, il est naturel que les institutions financières se saisissent du problème. Elles sont en effet les premières – à commencer par les compagnies d’assurance – concernées par les pertes spécifiquement financières qu’ils impliquent. Deux problèmes se posent. Comment gérer (ou financer) les pertes occasionnées par les dégâts causés par le réchauffement climatique ?

Comment financer les investissements nécessaires pour lutter contre le réchauffement climatique, ou plutôt pour ralentir sa progression dans les limites résultant de l’accord de Paris ? Une banque centrale est fondée à se préoccuper des questions climatiques parce que celles-ci impliquent potentiellement un risque de crise financière systémique. Science returns to the House.

How Climate Scientists Feel About Climate Change Deniers - Jason Box Tweet Controversy

"You find yourself in the center of this political theater, in this chess match that's being played out by very powerful figures—you feel anger, befuddlement, disillusionment, disgust. " The intimidating effect is undeniable, he says. Surprise! Looks like 2016 is going to be the hottest year in history. The European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service has announced that 2016 will be the warmest year in recorded history — by a lot.

Surprise! Looks like 2016 is going to be the hottest year in history.

The Arctic had an especially warm year, and experienced the sharpest rise in temperatures, while Africa and Asia also felt unusually high temps. Globally, surface temperatures climbed to an average 58.6 degrees F, 2.3 degrees F higher than before the Industrial Revolution, when humans got serious about burning fossil fuels. The warming temps continue a well-established trend: Last year was also the hottest year on record at the time, and 2014 was the hottest year on record before that. In fact, 10 of the hottest years on record have occurred since 1998. This warming trend has name — it’s called climate change, if you weren’t aware — and these rapidly accelerating temperatures come with severe consequences, including worsening storms, wildfires, droughts, and other extreme weather events.

World heat shatters records in 2016 in new sign of global warming. Non, le réchauffement climatique ne s’est pas arrêté en 1998. La « pause » observée entre 1998 et 2012 était liée à l’introduction d’une nouvelle technique de mesure.

For the last time, warming is not slowing down! That’s according to a new study in Science Advances, the latest installment in a debate that has refused to die.

For the last time, warming is not slowing down!

The controversy started in 2013 with a report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change suggesting that global warming had stalled. Researchers scrambled to explain what looked like a “warming hiatus,” while skeptics seized on those weird numbers to attack climate science. The confusion should have been cleared up in 2015, when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) found that a shift from ship-based measurements to ocean buoys could explain the low values. There was no “hiatus” at all. Republican Rep. This latest study “shows that NOAA got it right,” says Zeke Hausfather, a data scientist at UC Berkeley.

Your kids may be getting a confusing education on climate change

Kids are a vital part of the climate change conversation; they’re the ones, after all, who have to live in the world the rest of us are screwing up. But if they go to a public school, they could be getting a very confusing education on the subject. On Thursday, researchers published the first peer-reviewed national survey of science teachers on whether and how they teach about climate change, in the journal Science. Capitalocène plus qu'anthropocène. Christophe Bonneuil, signe, dans « Le Monde Diplomatique » de novembre 2015 un intéressant article dans un « dossier climat » par ailleurs très riche.

If the EPA relaxes deadlines for CO2 cuts, will the U.S. still be able to keep its climate promises? Education increases belief in climate change — everywhere except in the U.S. In China, people are more likely to understand the risks of climate change if they live in the city instead of the countryside.

Le grand bétonnage, une bombe climatique. We broke a whole lotta climate records in 2014. As has been seen year after year, the warming of the Earth is causing major changes in many aspects of the planet’s climate, and 2014 was yet another year that showed this trend in stark relief, a report released Thursday says. Numerous records were broken last year, according to the State of the Climate report, an annual checkup of the global climate published in a special issue of the journal Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. Supreme Court Rejects Obama's Drive To Cut Mercury Emissions From Power Plants. WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Monday ruled against an Environmental Protection Agency regulation limiting mercury and other toxic emissions from power plants, undermining the Obama administration's drive to cut pollution from electricity generators. The case looked at the EPA's regulation of mercury and other emissions from power plants under the Clean Air Act, which Republicans have attacked as a "war on coal" and an example of presidential overreach.

The EPA interpreted the law "unreasonably" when it failed to consider the costs of compliance with the new regulations, the court ruled 5-4 in an opinion written by Justice Antonin Scalia.

Here’s something rare in climate reporting: a bit of good news. Or, more accurately, not disastrous news. Laurent Fabius : « Le financement est un point clé pour un accord sur le climat »

Un Nobel d’économie peut-il raisonner comme un abruti ? Avec raison, les deux auteurs relèvent que l’actuel système de négociation ne peut être efficace car chaque pays invité à faire connaître sa contribution à la lutte contre le réchauffement « est fortement incité à laisser aux autres la charge de réduire les émissions de gaz à effet de serre». 6 Climate Tipping Points: How Worried Should We Be? This is a guest post from Ilissa Ocko, senior vice president of strategy and communications at Environmental Defense Fund. One of the biggest fears about climate change is that it may be triggering events that would dramatically alter Earth as we know it.

Known to scientists as “tipping events,” they could contribute to mass extinction of species, dramatic sea level rise, extensive droughts and the transformation of forests into vast grasslands – among other upheavals our stressed world can ill afford. Here are the top six climate events scientists worry about today. 1. 85% des Français ignorent la cause réelle de l’effet de serre, selon un baromètre ADEME.

Détails Les molécules d'au moins trois atomes, ou gaz à effet de serre, piègent les rayons infrarouges du soleil. Grâce à eux, la température moyenne au sol est actuellement de l'ordre de 15°C contre -18°C s'ils n'existaient pas. Beneath the tar sands is even dirtier oil, and industry is salivating over it. The price of crude oil has slumped to its lowest point in six years, and that has sent some major oil companies scrambling to get out of expensive tar-sands projects in Alberta, Canada.

Shell has pulled out of one of its largest lease applications, and Petrochina is attempting to get rid of its tar-sands assets. Environmentalists have watched the slowdown with great hope.

There’s good climate news from the United Kingdom. On Saturday, the leaders of the country’s three major parties — Conservative, Liberal Democrat, and Labor — all signed a joint pledge to aggressively fight climate change and phase out the use of coal. This isn’t because politics is any less divisive or partisan in the U.K. than in the U.S. Rather, it reflects key differences between our political cultures. Changement climatique : des solutions existent pour 9 Français sur 10. Le Monde.fr | • Mis à jour le | Par Pierre Le Hir. India may be the next big polluter to announce a climate plan. India is poised to unveil a new climate plan as soon as January, an Indian business publication is reporting. That’s yet another bit of good news that makes a 2015 global climate agreement look just a little more likely. Up until now, India, the third-largest annual emitter of greenhouse gases, has been resistant to calls for limiting emissions.

If you think climate politics in the U.S. are crazy, wait till you see what just happened in Australia. Hold on to your hats! Australia’s already-bizarre carbon price adventures veered into the utterly surreal overnight. Picture this: An eccentric billionaire mining baron, most famous outside Australia for commissioning a replica of the Titanic, appearing alongside the world’s most recognizable climate campaigner and former U.S. vice president, Al Gore, to announce Australia’s relatively new carbon tax will be scrapped, and a new emissions trading scheme proposed, effectively screwing over the sitting conservative prime minister, Tony Abbott, who is hell-bent on getting rid of carbon legislation altogether.

It’s a big blow to a prime minister who said recently in Canada that he has “always been against” an emissions trading scheme, and believes fighting climate change will “clobber the economy.” For watchers of Aussie politics, it was a visual feast of weirdness.
