Local & Global Impacts of Extreme Weather: Controversial Predictions of the 5th IPCC Report

Sponsors: New SchoolSCEPA Economics of Climate Change project, Fritz Thyssen Foundation & the German Research Foundation

In September, the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 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 Basis", strengthens 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. However, its language has proven controversial both to those who downplay or deny the report's claims and to those who think the conclusions are too conservative.
