A warmer world will cause more health problems

Global warming can have detrimental effects on public health, as hotter weather increases air pollution and raises the risk of developing heart and lung diseases, scientists say.

Western Norway to see more heavy rain and flooding in the future

The last week of September, Western Norway saw the heaviest rainfall in 13 years. Such downpours will become more common in the future as global warming leads to more water in the atmosphere, climate scientists warn.

Better forecasts could lead to huge savings for industry

CICERO Center for International Climate Research is working to develop more reliable and informative seasonal forecasts. This could lead to huge savings for both energy traders and farmers, as well as for other weather-dependent industries.

Stories to prepare us for weather extremes

How could academics improve their physical understanding of climate change to help us better imagine what weather the future might hold? By way of narratives and storytelling, some researchers suggest.

Double trouble: Climate change and air pollution

Smog is already damaging crops in northern India. What  will happen when both air pollution and temperature increase?

Airborne studies human dimensions of air pollution in China in a historical perspective. How do people’s experiences and fears of air pollution transform into new visions of sustainability and creative forms of action?

ClimateXL

Weather and climate extremes are likely to be one of the largest societal challenges associated with climate change in this century. Under climate change, these extreme events will intensify and become more frequent, and consequently the risk of severe and costly damage for humans and infrastructure will increase.

Translating Weather Extremes into the Future – a case for Norway

TWEX-Future.no will be taking a novel “Tales of future weather” approach. This approach suggests that scenarios tailored to a specific region and stakeholder in combination with numerical weather prediction models will offer a more realistic picture of what future weather might look like, hence facilitating adaptation planning and implementation.

CiXPAG - Interaction of Climate Extremes, Air Pollution and Agro-ecosystems

Future food production, and consequently food security, is very sensitive to both climate change and air pollution. So far, little is known about how climate extremes and ozone pollution interact to affect agriculture or about the relative effectiveness of climate change adaptation and ozone regulation measures for various crops and regions.
