A financial comparison of climate change impacts at 1.5C and 2C

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog

An article caught my eye recently: Scientists compare climate change impacts at 1.5C and 2C by Carbon Brief. We have some insight into the interconnectedness of extreme weather events and climate change, so we decided to take a look at the effect a 1.5°C at 2°C world might have on the expected financial loss and damage arising from extreme weather […]

Carbon Dioxide: Why is it bad, or is it just hot air?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is  a naturally occurring gas that is vital to life on earth.  Carbon dioxide exists in our atmosphere as a trace element of about 400 ppm (parts per million).  It is part of the Earth’s ‘carbon cycle’.  It is produced by plants (photosynthesis), produced by animals (a product of respiration) and by combustion […]

What is a carbon price and why do we need it?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog

A carbon price is a cost applied to carbon emissions to motivate polluters to reduce the quantity of carbon and greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere. Those emissions have been accumulating since the advent of the  Industrial Revolution and are considered the most significant contributor towards climate change.  The associated cost of current and future damage to the environment […]

Temperature Anomaly: what is it, how is it used?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog

A temperature anomaly is the difference between the current temperature and the long term average.  A positive temperature anomaly indicates that it is warmer that the long term average.  Likewise a negative anomaly indicates that it is cooler than the long term average. Temperature anomaly is dependent on the period being used.  The average temperature over the […]
