1. To quote Leo 'Climate change is not hysteria. It is fact.'

    Based on these facts, the in-house science service of the European Commission, better known as the Joint Research Center, is doing their work. In their recently published PESETA study, they have calculated the economical and physical impacts of climate change in Europe until 2080.
    Our task was to present the principles behind the calculations and conclusions of this study in a short animation.

  3. Climate Change — The state of the science

    Produced by the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme and Globaia and funded by the UN Foundation for the launch of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report.

    The data visualization summarises and visualizes several of the most significant statements in the IPCC's latest summary for policymakers published September 2013. This summary covers the physical science basis of climate change. In 2014, IPCC will publish summaries concerning societal impacts, mitigation and adaptation.

  4. With photography by Robin Hammond and produced by Panos Pictures, this multimedia piece looks at the island nation of Tuvalu, as the Tuvaluan people become some of the first environmental refugees, a direct result of man-made climate change.

    In December this year a treaty to replace the Kyoto protocol will be drawn up at the climate change conference in Copenhagen. At a preliminary summit in March, scientists presented new information that revised previous estimates of future sea level rise. The new figures suggest that by the end of the century the oceans could be one metre or more above their current levels. Coastal regions will be flooded and low-lying nations such as the tiny South Pacific country of Tuvalu could be submerged.

    The impact of rising seas and the increase in extreme weather events can already be seen in Tuvalu. It is one of 22 Pacific island nations with 7 million inhabitants between them that contribute only 0.06% of global greenhouse gas emissions but are three times more vulnerable to climate change than countries in the North.

    At the primary school in Funafuti, children are taught about climate change from the age of six. They are also learning what it means to emigrate, because this could be the last generation of children to grow up in Tuvalu. Its people are already in flight. More than 4,000 live in New Zealand, and the Tuvaluan government is planning the migration of the remaining 10,000.
