Will economic measures against climate change ruin the economy?
As more and more decisionmakers recognise the need for putting a price tag on greenhouse gases emissions, concerns appear that such solutions would curb economic growth. However the question worth asking is not whether carbon taxes or other regulations such as emission trading systems (described in depth here) could ruin the economy, but how the […]
How will we cope with sea level rise?
An estimated 13% of the world’s population lives less than 10m above sea level. Even if the greenhouse gases emissions decline, the sea level rise is going to affect many coastal areas through seasonal and permanent flooding. This situation urges city planners and engineers to develop adaptation strategies, some of which stretch our technological capabilities […]
What do we know about future sea level rise and how do we know it?

Projections paint a grim picture of affected regions and populations, but there are also voices downplaying the scale of the problem in the future. How have scientists been able to observe the rise in sea levels? How can they […]
