Biotechnology for Climate Change Adaptation of Crops. Biotechnology for Climate Change Adaptation of Crops. Adaptation Technologies per Sector. genetically modified crops. Superior genes or alleles can often be found within other lines or races of the same crop and their efficient accumulation can be greatly speeded by molecular breeding where the presence of desirable genes or alleles can be directly and immediately identified, even in seeds or very young plants not exposed to the stress in question. Conventional crop breeding for tolerance to these effects has had considerable success but is slow and largely limited to exploiting the existing genetic variation in crop plants and their very close relatives. Biotechnology and genetic engineering give us the prospect of making more dramatic changes to crop responses to stress than is possible with conventional breeding and making them more rapidly. A major reason for the relatively slow progress in conventional breeding responses to the stresses related to cli...

From injuries and noncommunicable conditions to food-borne, waterborne and vector-borne infectious diseases, local health systems in cities will have to cope with and adapt to additional needs brought about by changing climate patterns and increasing average temperatures. Our work focuses on urban health vulnerability assessment and adaptation to climate change, mainly through relevant research and policy advice.The generation of retrospective and prospective evidence of urban linkages between climate and health is a fundamental step towards an effective and equitable adaptation of cities to climate change impacts. The idea is to generate city-based scientific evidence on the links between climate change and health, assess local vulnerability to climate impacts and contribute to making urban settings prepared for and resilient to climate-induced risks – disease...

What’s more, we know what we have to do to solve the problem: reduce carbon pollution and begin adapting to the inevitable climate change impacts we’ve already caused with past emissions. On the adaptation front, we have to begin preparing our communities for the worsening floods, droughts, and water pollution  we’re already beginning to see. In the absence of Congressional action, the Obama administration has been making progress on a couple fronts. The administration has also been making quiet progress on climate adaptation. In mid-March this task force  released a progress report on their efforts including a number of key elements to be included in a national adaptatio...

Top scientists are saying that climate change will complicate and worsen existing global security problems, such as civil wars, strife between nations and refugees. That's a big change from seven years ago, the last time the IPCC addressed how warming affected Earth, said report lead author Chris Field of the Carnegie Institution of Science in California. The summary that political leaders read in early 2007 didn't mention security issues will, he said, because of advances in research. There's enough smoke there that we really need to pay attention to this, said Ohio University security and environment professor Geoff Dabelko, one of the lead authors of the report's chapter on security and climate change. For the past seven years, research in social science has found more links between climate and conflict, study authors say, with the full report referencing hundreds of studies on climate change and conflict.

At the same time, warm air will flowing into the Arctic to replace the cold air spilling south, which drives more sea ice loss. Less sea ice and more ocean surface will lead to a warmer Arctic, and a warmer climate. Extraordinary melting of sea ice in the Arctic in 2012 shattered the all-time low sea ice extent record set in September 2007. A Manmade Problem Increased water temperatures and air temperatures due to human-caused global warming are the dominant reasons for the record melting of the Arctic sea ice. Sea level rise Direct effect: The melting of the Arctic sea ice will not change ocean sea levels appreciably, since the ice is already floating in the ocean. The freshening of Arctic sea water due to manmade climate change could lead to exceptional changes in the world's ocean circulation and thus Earth's climate as well.

The Poverty Impacts of Climate Change: a Review of the Evidence. by Emmanuel Skoufias, Mariano Rabassa and Sergio Olivieri - This paper conducts an up-to-date review of three main strands of the literature analyzing the poverty impacts of climate change : i economy-wide growth models incorporating climate change impacts to work out consistent scenarios for how climate change might affect the path of poverty over the next decades; ii studies focusing on the poverty impacts of climate change in the agricultural sector; and iii studies exploring how past climate variability impacts poverty. The analysis finds that the majority of the estimates of the poverty impacts tend to ignore the effect of aggregate economic growth on poverty and household welfare.

... Sandwatch Climate Change. What is climate change. Climate change is defined as a change in climate which is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere and is observed over long periods of time many decades. Climate on earth has changed continually as the planet has evolved geologically. Natural causes include changes in the amount of the sun's solar radiation reaching the earth, and volcanic eruptions that can shroud the earth in dust thereby reflecting the heat from the sun back into space. Most of the historical changes in climate have occurred on time scales far longer than a human life - centuries, millennia or millions of years. Natural causes, however, can explain only a small part of the present warming trend that has been observed during the second half of the 20th century. There is now unequivocal evidence that the earth's climate is changing as a result of human activities, principally, increased carbon dioxide emissions since pre-in...

Reports. REPORTS - ASSESSMENT REPORTS. Preface This report is the first complete assessment of the science of climate change since Working Group I WGI of the IPCC produced its second report Climate Change 1995: The Science of Climate Change in 1996. The report analyses the enormous body of observations of all parts of the climate system, concluding that this body of observations now gives a collective picture of a warming world. The report catalogues the increasing concentrations of atmospheric greenhouse gases and assesses the effects of these gases and atmospheric aerosols in altering the radiation balance of the Earth-atmosphere system. The report assesses the understanding of the processes that govern the climate system and by studying how well the new generation of climate models represent these processes, assesses the suitability of the models for projecting climate change into the future. Projections of future climate change are presented using a wide range of scenarios of future emissions of greenhous...

... Changes in long term environmental conditions that can be collectively coined climate change are known to have had enormous impacts on plant diversity patterns in the future and are seen as having significant current impacts. Direct impacts of climate change Changes in distributions. Indirect impacts of climate change Higher level changes Challenges of modelling future impacts See also References Further reading External links. Focus is on identifying the current impacts of climate change on biodiversity, and predicting these effects into the future. Because individual plants and therefore species can only function physiologically, and successfully complete their life cycles under specific environmental conditions ideally within a subset of these, changes to climate are likely to have significant impacts on plants from the level of the individual right through to the level of the ecosystem or biome. 8 Effects of temperature.

Climate Change Action Plan 2001. As of 2008, Alberta's electricity sector was the most carbon-intensive of all Canadian provinces and territories, with total emissions of 55.9 million tonnes of equivalent in 2008, accounting for 47% of all Canadian emissions in the electricity and heat generation sector. In 1990, Ontario’s greenhouse gas emissions were 176 megatonnes Mt of CO 2 equivalent. Ontario’s emissions were 171 Mt in 2010, an amount that represented 25% of Canada’s total emissions for that year. In August 2007, the Ontario government released Go Green: Ontario’s Action Plan on Climate Change.

(1/1431) Shifts in phenology due to global climate change: the need for a yardstick.

Climate change has led to shifts in phenology in many species distributed widely across taxonomic groups. It is, however, unclear how we should interpret these shifts without some sort of a yardstick: a measure that will reflect how much a species should be shifting to match the change in its environment caused by climate change. Here, we assume that the shift in the phenology of a species' food abundance is, by a first approximation, an appropriate yardstick. We review the few examples that are available, ranging from birds to marine plankton. In almost all of these examples, the phenology of the focal species shifts either too little (five out of 11) or too much (three out of 11) compared to the yardstick. Thus, many species are becoming mistimed due to climate change. We urge researchers with long-term datasets on phenology to link their data with those that may serve as a yardstick, because documentation of the incidence of climate change-induced mistiming is crucial in assessing the impact of global climate change on the natural world.  (+info)

(2/1431) Protistan diversity in the Arctic: a case of paleoclimate shaping modern biodiversity?

BACKGROUND: The impact of climate on biodiversity is indisputable. Climate changes over geological time must have significantly influenced the evolution of biodiversity, ultimately leading to its present pattern. Here we consider the paleoclimate data record, inferring that present-day hot and cold environments should contain, respectively, the largest and the smallest diversity of ancestral lineages of microbial eukaryotes. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We investigate this hypothesis by analyzing an original dataset of 18S rRNA gene sequences from Western Greenland in the Arctic, and data from the existing literature on 18S rRNA gene diversity in hydrothermal vent, temperate sediments, and anoxic water column communities. Unexpectedly, the community from the cold environment emerged as one of the richest observed to date in protistan species, and most diverse in ancestral lineages. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: This pattern is consistent with natural selection sweeps on aerobic non-psychrophilic microbial eukaryotes repeatedly caused by low temperatures and global anoxia of snowball Earth conditions. It implies that cold refuges persisted through the periods of greenhouse conditions, which agrees with some, although not all, current views on the extent of the past global cooling and warming events. We therefore identify cold environments as promising targets for microbial discovery.  (+info)
