Science can inform response to climate-change impacts
By Summit Voice
FRISCO — Climate scientists need to deliver their information in a context that can help find practical applications to deal with global warming impacts, according to a new paper published by an international team of scientists.
That could show that the scientific capability and organizational structure to begin responding to emerging climate-related issues already exists — what’s missing is better engagement between the scientific community and the stakeholders they are seeking to inform, the researchers wrote in the Policy Forum section of the journal Science.
“Adaptation is required in virtually all sectors of the economy and regions of the globe,” they wrote. “However, without the appropriate science delivered in a decision-relevant context, it will become increasingly difficult – if not impossible – to prepare adequately.”
