This research review discusses work to improve risk assessment of extreme weather events across past, present, and future
In the U.S. alone, 3 feet of sea level rise by 2100 threatens 4 million people with inundation, increasing to 13 million people with 6 feet of sea level rise. What policies can mitigate rising damages and population migration from sea level rise, and which role should managed retreat play in adapting to risk?
This research review explores what nature’s self-reinforcing feedback loops and climate change tipping points portend for our future.
This research review explores the state of research on increasing wildfires across the Western U.S. and attribution to climate change.
This research review explores progress made on expanding clean energy achieving a stable climate, as well as challenges remaining, from 1998 to 2018.
This research review proposes several alternative pathways and potential actions to avoid dangerous global warming and achieve a 1.5C future.
This research review provides an overview into different methods to produce energy from hydrogen for use in electricity, transportation, and energy storage.
This research review provides an overview into climate science covering possible linkages between amplified Arctic warming temperatures and winter extremes in the U.S.
Lower costs, enhanced capabilities, and an abundance of resources have set the United States and much of the world on track to increase renewable energy deployment and decrease carbon emissions from the energy sector. Still, the question of whether the U.S. can reliably and affordably integrate large amounts of wind and solar confronts policymakers – so we’re giving you four reasons 30% wind and solar is technically no big deal.
Mexico was the first developing country to release its post-2020 national climate action plan, committing to reduce its emissions 22 percent by 2030 or up to 36 percent under certain conditions . New WRI analysis finds that it’s not only possible for Mexico to meet these goals, it’s economically beneficial—reducing emissions by 22 percent would save the country $26 billion between 2017 and 2030.
