With only a single degree Celsius of warming so far, our planet is already coping with a crescendo of climate impacts
including deadly droughts, erratic rainfall, and storm surges engorged by rising seas.
A recent LCA conducted by a non-profit ecological research institute, the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IFEU) indicates glass packaging had a climate impact
about nine times higher than that of cartons.
Researchers taking a closer look at this event have uncovered what they believe caused the deluge--a stalling of planetary waves known as "planetary wave resonance"--and they suggest that their findings "provide more evidence that planetary waves cause extreme weather events," especially in the summer, says Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact
Research (PIK), coauthor of a new article on the research published in Science Advances.

assessments depend on input from ESMs that have a typical resolution of around one by one degree, which translates to roughly 100 by 100 kilometers at the equator (Taylor et al.
Banks and pension funds will have to report the climate impact
of the light bulbs in their offices, but they won't have to say anything about the coal, oil and gas projects they finance worldwide.
