  The naysayers of climate change would rather not hear these stories. They are very good at shutting climate into an echo chamber of spurious scientific uncertainty.   This book aims to come up with views to address the queries of planners, policymakers, and general people for water resources management under uncertainty of climate change, including examples from Asia and Europe with successful adaptive measures to change the challenge of climate change into : Springer International Publishing.

  The NOOK Book (eBook) of the Climate of Uncertainty: A Balanced Look At Global Warming and Renewable Energy by William Stewart at Barnes & Noble. FREE Due to Pages: This paper presents a general assessment approach for evaluating the resilience of hydroelectricity projects to uncertainty in climate and other risk factors (e.g., financial, natural hazard). The process uses a decision analytic framework based on a decision scaling approach, which combines scenario neutral analysis and vulnerability-specific.

The perfect book for anyone seeking an unbiased understanding of all sides of the climate change issue, Climate of Uncertainty explores the topic in a way all readers will understand. Without taking sides, Stewart examines the major questions of today: global warming, renewable energy, expanding populations, and sustainability. This book reviews ways of addressing these new risks within central banks’ financial stability mandate. However, integrating climate-related risk analysis into financial stability monitoring is particularly challenging because of the radical uncertainty associated with a physical, social and economic phenomenon that is constantlyAuthor: Patrick Bolton, Morgan Després, Luiz Awazu Pereira da Silva, Frédéric Samama, Romain Svartzman.

Your next choice, Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer (), could be described in many ways. Among those, perhaps, is that it portrays a world, or a phenomenon that defies normal human understanding.

I’m guessing that compared to this book researching climate uncertainty is quite straightforward. In The Climate Casino, economist William Nordhaus considers how we should respond to climate change according to economics. The first policy recommendation of the book is a carbon tax.

Climate change is caused by greenhouse gases, especially CO2, but no one pays for the consequences of putting carbon in the atmosphere--as far as economics is concerned, it's an externality.4/5.

The Future We Choose, a new book by the architects of the Paris climate accords, offers two contrasting visions for how the world might look in thirty years (read the best case scenario here Author: Christiana Figueres And Tom Rivett-Carnac.

Book Description. Why is uncertainty so important to politics today. To explore the underlying reasons, issues and challenges, this book’s chapters address finance and banking, insurance, technology regulation and critical infrastructures, as well as climate change, infectious disease responses, natural disasters, migration, crime and security and spirituality and religion.

Climate projections have demonstrated the need to adapt to a changing climate, but have been less helpful (so far) in guiding how to effectively adapt. Part of the reason is the ‘cascade of uncertainty’ going from assumptions about future global emissions of greenhouse gases to what that means for the climate to real decisions on a local scale.

by Judith Curry. Doubt and Certainty in Climate Science is an important new book that everyone should read. And its free. It is a privilege to make available to you the book Doubt and Certainty in Climate Science, by Alan Longhurst [link Longhurst print to download the book]. The book is pages long, with footnotes/references.

Uncertainty in climate projections arises from several different sources. For example, the future emissions scenario is not known, so the usual approach is to run several to compare plausible futures.

In addition, each climate model produces a different change in climate. The Climate Casino NPR coverage of The Climate Casino: Risk, Uncertainty, and Economics for a Warming World by William Nordhaus.

A better approach to climate policy, drawing on recent research on the economics of uncertainty, would reframe the problem as buying insurance against catastrophic, low-probability events.

Managing Water Resources in the West Under Conditions of Climate Uncertainty examines the scientific basis for predictions of climate change, the implications of climate uncertainty for water resources management, and the management options available for responding to.

Climate change is profoundly altering our world in ways that pose major risks to human societies and natural systems. We have entered the Climate Casino and are rolling the global-warming dice, warns economist William Nordhaus. But there is still time to turn around and walk back out of the casino, and in this essential book the author explains.

"There is a lot of abstract theorising around climate adaptation in the developing world; and competing claims are made about what knowledge or technology is most needed. Stephen Whitfield's Adapting to Climate Uncertainty in African Agriculture is a rich empirical study of what actually happens on the ground among small-scale Kenyan farmers.

There are now a variety of climate models with differing implications, so how to confront cross-model uncertainty seems pertinent to an assessment of uncertainty. In this paper, we apply an approach to model ambiguity that applies the Hansen and Miao () recursive implementation of the smooth ambiguity model originally proposed and Cited by: 1.

Human influence has been detected in nearly all of the major assessed components of the climate system. Taken together, the combined evidence increases the overall level of confidence in the attribution of observed climate change, and reduces the uncertainties associated with assessment based on a single climate variable.
