About this book

Seven interviews with leading climate scientists cover both fundamental research (climate modeling, global warming, sea level change, melting of the ice caps, natural hazards) and impact assessment (adaption, mitigation, economic impacts and costs of climate change). Experts on different aspects of the topic explain their own field and give their opinion on general questions concerning climate change. The goal is to provide the reader with first-hand information on the current state of climate research.

- Erland K#ll#n: Time means are more predictable than the instantaneous state

- Stephane Hallegatte: When deciding about long-term strategies, irreversibility is a key point
- J. Donald Hughes: The Montreal Agreement is a good example of how to deal with a global environmental problem
