The planet's average surface temperature has risen about degrees Fahrenheit ( degrees Celsius) since the late 19th century, a change driven largely by increased carbon dioxide and other human-made emissions into the atmosphere. 4 Most of the warming occurred in the past 35 years, with the five warmest years on record taking place since Not only was the . Executive Order of November 1, Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change. By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to prepare the Nation for the impacts of climate change by undertaking actions to enhance climate preparedness and resilience, it is hereby ordered .
Since climate change is such an overt paradigm, hopefully its ultimate failure will change these things for the better. False paradigms have come and gone. But, climate change, the mother of all false paradigms, won’t be as easily forgotten. (although we will try) Its high visibility will be of great help to science when it ultimately fails. Pervasive misinformation about climate change might be reduced if colleges were to include the topic within general education curriculum. This paper analyzes the general education (or “core”) curriculum in the top universities and liberal-arts colleges in the U.S. to assess the proportion of core courses that highlight climate change or climate by:

Evaluating Progress of the U.S. Climate Change Science Program is the first review of the CCSP's progress since the program was established in It lays out a method for evaluating the CCSP, and uses that method to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the entire program and to identify areas where progress has not met expectations.
The Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) was the program responsible for coordinating and integrating research on global warming by U.S. government agencies from February to June Toward the end of that period, CCSP issued 21 separate climate assessment reports that addressed climate observations, changes in the atmosphere, expected climate change.

Moreover, climate change has emerged as a preeminent challenge to both the environment and to development. Evaluating Environment in International Development provides international perspectives and in-depth knowledge of evaluating development and the environment and applies evaluation knowledge to climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Establishes consistent methods for evaluating climate impacts in the U.S. in the context of broader global change; Provides input to Federal science priorities and are used by U.S. citizens, communities, and businesses as they create more sustainable and environmentally sound plans for the nation’s future.
Evaluating Progress of the U.S. Climate Change Science Program: Methods and Preliminary Results The U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) coordinates the efforts of 13 federal agencies to understand why climate is changing, to improve predictions about how it will change in the future, and to use that information to assess impacts on human.
observations of climate-related environmental change, and identify key climate concerns and adaptation strategies. Climate science observations and projections of climate change, specific to the Seward Peninsula (Nome region) were used by community members to understand potential future risks.

Climate Change Science Program. From Dr. Judith Curry’s Climate Etc. Posted on Aug by curryja |. by Judith Curry. A new book by Oppenheimer, Oreskes et al. entitled ‘Discerning Experts: The Practices of Scientific Assessment for Environmental Policy‘ makes a case against consensus seeking in climate science assessments.

Kolstad is an energy and environmental economist with a research focus on regulation. Much of his applied work is in the area of climate change and energy markets.
He has been a Convening Lead. In the end, the U.S. bowed to pressure from European finance ministers who pressured the U.S. to acknowledge the climate crisis. The New York Times noted that the inclusion of "climate change" on the third page of the document at the bottom of a long list of potential risks was a subtle, but notable acknowledgement by the U.S.
that there are risks. Molly has contributed to several national climate change efforts including the U.S. National Climate Assessment, the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies guidance on incorporating climate change into state wildlife action plans, and the Climate-Smart Conservation guide to climate adaptation.
She is the Science Advisor to the WCS Climate. In its Global Risks Report, the World Economic Forum listed the top five environmental risks—including extreme weather events and temperatures and failures of climate change mitigation and adaptation—in terms of both likelihood and the impact on the global economy.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) Assessments, Thought Leadership, and Learning Project has been working to synthesize promising practices and identify and adapt the most appropriate tools to assess risks and evaluate initiatives to strengthen resilience to the effects of climate change.
Progress is the movement towards a refined, improved, or otherwise desired state. In the context of progressivism, it refers to the proposition that advancements in technology, science, and social organization have resulted, and by extension will continue to result, in an improved human condition; the latter may happen as a result of direct human action, as in social enterprise or.
