Quantifying the irreducible uncertainty in near‐term climate projections
Published Online: Nov 28 2018
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.563
Even if CO2 emissions fall after 2020, there is a one‐in‐three chance that global warming will speed up until 2035 instead of slowing down—and we cannot tell right now.

Why the social cost of carbon will always be disputed
Published Online: Nov 12 2018
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.558
The ~1°C‐wide band of reconstructed, Common‐Era global mean temperatures contrasts sharply with future projections from DICE‐2016R, a leading climate‐economy model, of 4.1°C “optimal” and 7.2°C “baseline” peak global warming. The “climate damage function” assumed by such projections, and the associated Social Cost of Carbons (SCCs) used to guide some climate policies, cannot be tested scientifically.

Adaptation pathways for conservation law and policy
Published Online: Sep 26 2018
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.555

Overview

Climate change vulnerability assessment of species
Published Online: Oct 11 2018
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.551
Assessing species' vulnerability to climate change is becoming a prerequisite for conservation planning, but choosing approaches, methods and data can be challenging. Key to informing such choices is consideration of the full range of climate change pressures and their likely mechanisms of impact on individuals, subpopulations and species. Navigate a sound path through do's and don'ts, and explore resources and future perspectives in this exciting field.
