Hurricane Florence’s Unusual Extremes Worsened by Climate Change

Researchers estimate the storm’s rainfall forecast is 50 percent higher because of warmer oceans and more moisture in the atmosphere brought by global warming.

The news comes after the EU-funded Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) concluded that 2018 was Earth’s 4th-warmest on record, with the past 4 years serving as the planet’s hottest seen since instrument records began in 1880 (and likely well before that).


Emissions Gap Report 2018

Prof. Kevin Reed and Ph.D. Alyssa Stansfield

The goal of the Paris Agreement on climate change, as agreed at the Conference of the Parties in 2015, is to keep global temperature rise this century to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. It also calls for efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
The annual UN Environment Emissions Gap Report presents an assessment of current national mitigation efforts and the ambitions countries have presented in their Nationally Determined Contributions, which form the foundation of the Paris Agreement.

The Human Influence on Hurricane Florence

Prof. Kevin Reed and Ph.D. Alyssa Stansfield

Prof. Kevin Reed and Ph.D. Alyssa Stansfield, along with colleagues at LBNL and NCAR, have for the first time used a climate model (CAM5) to produce near real-time experimental forecasts of Hurricane Florence to assess how much human induced climate change has altered the anticipated rainfall, intensity and size of the storm.
