The Document Library

If you’ve browsed through our continuously updated documents, you’ll have appreciated their breadth of scope and their seriousness.

We have peer reviewed international references that are often overlooked in mainstream media and other climate sites.

We have documents that criticise things that haven’t worked, and since we’ve concentrated on science and tried to factor out ideology, some of our documents may seem controversial.

This Synthesis Report is based on the assessment carried out by the three Working Groups (WGs) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It provides an integrated view of climate change as the final part of the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report (AR4). Topic 1 summarizes observed changes in climate and their effects on natural and human systems, regardless of their causes, while Topic 2 assesses the causes of the observed changes. Topic 3 presents projections of future climate change and related impacts under different scenarios. Topic 4 discusses adaptation and mitigation options over the next few decades and their interactions with sustainable development.
Excellent example of the thinking and methodology, but not the most recent data. moreless

This paper proposes a modification of the IPPC mitigation scenario MESSAGE whereby large scale deployment of nuclear reactors are deployed from 2020 rather than 2060, thereby greatly reducing the need for yet unproven carbon capture. moreless

Tropical reforestation (TR) has been highlighted as an important intervention for climate change mitigation because of its carbon storage potential. TR can also play other frequently overlooked, but significant, roles in helping society and ecosystems adapt to climate variability and change. For example, reforestation can ameliorate climate-associated impacts of altered hydrological cycles in watersheds, protect coastal areas from increased storms, and provide habitat to reduce the probability of species’ extinctions under a changing climate. moreless

James Hansen, et.al. Assessment of impacts of global warming using ongoing observations and paleoclimate data. We use Earth’s measured energy imbalance, paleoclimate data, and simple representations of the global carbon cycle and temperature to define emission reductions needed to stabilise climate and avoid potentially disastrous impacts. moreless

A forest is much more than what is seen, says ecologist Suzanne Simard. Her 30 years of research in Canadian forests have led to an understanding of how trees interrelate, often over vast distances. Understand the delicate balance of the forest and the concept of tipping points in forest health. moreless

US commitment to COP22. This document lays out a strategy to deeply decarbonize the U.S. economy by 2050. This document has been presented immediately after the US 2016 election results. At this point in time, little is known about the future of these very worthwhile commitments. moreless

An international team of scientists suggests that we must ramp up energy production by nuclear power if we are to succeed in warding off the worst effects of climate change. Writing in the International Journal of Global Energy Issues, the team suggests that beginning in 2020 we could achieve an annual electricity output of 20 terawatts without needing to develop carbon dioxide trapping and storage technology for the tens of billions of tons of emissions that would otherwise drive global warming to catastrophic levels. moreless
