Introducing the Climanomics Blog: Demystifying climate change
If you’re like me, everywhere you turn, the topic of climate change is in the air — on the radio, in news stories, on social media. Scientists are increasingly making the connection between extreme heat and climate change1, and we are certainly seeing many extreme weather events this year — from soaring temperatures in Europe to devastating flooding in Pakistan to Hurricane Ian wreaking havoc across the southeastern United States. However, the key question is how to take this information and make it useful. How do you translate these headlines and often abstract climate concepts into concrete information that makes sense?
S&P Global Sustainable1 is introducing the Climanomics Blog to answer as many of these questions as possible. This series will use our data, analytics and tools to explain the evolving climate landscape in plain English. This is not a blog just for PhDs and climate scientists — though some of our blog authors will be both. Rather, this is a place for anyone with an interest in climate and anyone impacted by climate change.
