The Science of Climate Change

Climate change is no longer a distant threat or just a possibility, it is now a reality for all of us. In this pathway, Kevin Trenberth, a renowned climatologist, delves into the science behind climate change. He first introduces the climate system, its main components and forces.

Tackling the Plastic Crisis

Plastic pollution is by far the biggest threat to our oceans and this remains an incredibly tough problem to solve. Plastic credits could potentially serve as one of the much needed solutions for this crisis.

The Scale of the Net Zero Challenge

The price of meeting net zero is estimated to be between $100-150 trillion over the next 30 years. Regardless of this cost, we need to reach net zero before climate change does irreversible damage to the environment and the economy.

ESG, Sustainability and Impact Jargon Buster

ESG, sustainability, impact… they all just mean green, right? Not quite. Despite being used often interchangeably, there are distinct differences between these terms.

Climate Models and Projections

Climate change is a pressing issue facing humanity and one of the most important steps in addressing it is to understand the causes and impacts of the changing climate. This is where climate models come in. Climate models are sophisticated computer simulations that allow climate scientists to simulate and predict long-term climate patterns. In this pathway, Kevin Trenberth, discusses the use of climate models, the evolution of different types of models and the distinction between climate predictions and projections. Kevin then explains the potential impacts of different levels of global warming, including the differences between 1.5°C and 2°C warming, as well as the projections of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

  • Climate Models

    In this video, Kevin Trenberth provides a deep dive into climate models by outlining the importance of models and the approach to modelling. He also discusses Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models, climate models and the challenges faced. Lastly, he discusses the difference between predictions and projections.

  • 1.5°C vs 2°C Global Warming

    It is crucial to limit and slow down global warming, and this cannot be emphasised enough. Every small increase in temperature is accompanied by a corresponding increase in hot extremes, severe storms, droughts, rising oceans etc. Join Kevin, as he talks us through the importance of rates of change vs one-off climate events, along with the differences the planet will see at 1.5 vs 2 degrees of warming.

  • IPCC Projections

    In the previous video, Kevin outlines the differences between the effects of 1.5 vs 2 degrees warming. In this video, Kevin discusses the various emissions scenarios pathways as projected by the IPCC. In doing so, Kevin also elaborates on the multitude of physical threats that accompany these pathways.
