Uncertainty in global warming reduced, a new study published in the journal Nature by CRESCENDO scientists revealed

Uncertainty surrounding the extent of future climate change could be dramatically reduced by studying year-on-year global temperature fluctuations, new research has shown. For detailed explanations on this study, watch online the webinar below by Mark Williamson, co-author of the study. A team of scientists from the University of Exeter and the Centre of Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) […]

CRESCENDO event at COP23: 15 November 2017, 10:00 – 11:15 European Union Pavilion, Bonn, Germany

Using advanced Earth system models to deliver reliable estimates of future global change Realizing the Paris Agreement: A rapidly closing window of opportunity Human activity, notably the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), is changing the climate. Presently, only ~50% of emitted CO2 remains in the atmosphere causing the climate to warm. The remaining 50% is […]

The science of climate change communication: CRESCENDO workshop to gain confidence, experience and knowledge. 25th Sept 2017, Paris, France

By Alberto Muñoz (UNIVLEEDS, UK), Nada Caud (IPSL-CNRS, France) and Asher Minns (UEA, UK). There is a wealth of scientific evidence for climate change – enough to fill five IPCC reports – but there is much less known about how to communicate this climate change research to the public. On September 25th CRESCENDO organised a […]
