Case Studies - Climate Change
Currently, studies on all dimensions of global warming and climate change impacts are being conducted most sectors of society and in many regions of the world. The prospects of severe impacts from climate change are forcing governments to pay close attention to scientific research about climate change, and are creating a demand for more research, particularly in the study of adaptations. Mitigation studies concern the reduction and capture and storage of greenhouse gas emissions, and usually concern technological innovations and changes in consumption patterns. Adaptation studies look at responses to climate change impacts, are quite varied in type, and could range from research into drought resistant crops to relocating entire communities. Further research is required, particularly to clarify our understanding of the ethical implications of certain climate change related choices.
