Research co-authored by Stanford Earth's Gabrielle Wong-Parodi shows solar panels on school and university rooftops can result in significant energy savings and improve health by reducing pollutants in the air.
E-IPER director Nicole Ardoin says couching environmental messages in the context of a theme park could spur conversations and remain with people beyond the visit because of the memory of a shared experience.
Computing a precise social cost of carbon could help us decide how much to invest and which problems to tackle first. Research led by Marshall Burke on the dollar value of limiting warming to 1.5 °C is cited.
It's been well-documented that low-income communities bear the brunt of many climate change-related horrors. Now research from Stanford shows which countries win and which lose out as a result of global warming.
“What we are doing is different than prediction. But, yes, all of these things are indirectly related,” says Stanford Earth postdoc Mostafa Moustavi, who is using machine learning to detect small quakes.
"Researchers and policy makers have been saying for many years that the greatest, most acute impacts of global warming are falling on populations least responsible for creating that global warming," says Noah Diffenbaugh. "We have quantified the effect."
Stanford Earth researchers have quantified the economic impact of climate change over half a century, revealing the extent to which global warming has made poor countries poorer and rich countries richer.
Global warming has already created winners and losers across the world, with poorer, tropical nations suffering the most even though they contributed far less to the problem, a study from Stanford Earth finds.
Numerous studies have predicted that poor nations will suffer the greatest devastation from climate change. A new analysis by Noah Diffenbaugh and Marshall Burke finds it’s already been happening for decades.
