Share Local and Global Impacts of Climate Change: Predictions of the 5th IPCC Report

Event Details

In September, the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published the first of four reports providing updates on the scientific community’s knowledge of climate change and its effects. The report from the first Working Group, Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basisstrengthens the panel’s degree of certainty that climate change is man-made and is the cause of melting ice, rising global sea levels and various forms of extreme weather. 

SCEPA’s Economics of Climate Change lecture series will present a panel discussion with leading climate change scientists on the major findings of the report. They will discuss its local and global predictions and what it forecasts for urban areas, agriculture, food production, and developing economies.

Speakers:

Peter Schlosser, What Does the the 5th Assessment Report Tell Us?
Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Columbia University 
Deputy Director and Director of Research, The Earth Institute at Columbia University

Robert Kopp, Local and Global Impacts of Extreme Weather
Assistant Professor, Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences, Rutgers University 
Associate Director, Rutgers Energy Institute

Wolfram Schlenker, Effects of Weather Change on Agricultural, Food Production & the Developing World
Associate Professor, School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University
