BC3 Press Release (2017-05-04)

"Cities in Southeast Asia, Eastern Africa and on US West Coast need to act on sea-level rise most urgently". [Leioa (Spain), 4th May 2017] For people and insurance companies alike, it is the extreme events – with low probability but highly damaging - that are the most devastating. Storm Desmond, for example, flooded northwestern areas of the UK in 2015, and Hurricane Katrina wreaked catastrophe on New Orleans in 2005. The same is true when it comes to future sea level rise. Now a study assesses coastal flood risk from sea level rise for 120 major coastal cities, and shows which cities are most vulnerable to extreme events.

Deia: “Las olas de calor pueden elevar la mortalidad hasta un 54%”

Según el estudio del instituto vasco de investigación de cambio climático, BC3, las olas de calor son consideradas por la Organización Mundial de la Salud como uno de los fenómenos meteorológicos extremos “más peligrosos” con gran impacto sobre la salud de las personas. “El País Vasco no queda al margen de esta tendencia climática”, resumían los expertos del instituto vasco de investigación de cambio climático. Por eso, desde 2006 existe un Plan de prevención en situación de ola de calor que describe los efectos posibles de una situación de calor extremo sobre la salud de las personas e identifica los principales grupos de riesgo.

El Pais (edición País Vasco): Las olas de calor aumentarán la mortalidad en Euskadi

Un estudio financiado por el Gobierno vasco que pone cifras concretas a lo que podría ocurrir en Euskadi en una proyección de cara a los próximos 80 años. Si no se adoptan medidas correctoras, a partir de 2020 las olas de calor podrían incrementar la mortalidad hasta un 58%, en el escenario más desfavorable.El estudio presentado en el foro Klimatek, en Bilbao, está firmado por el centro vasco de investigación de cambio climático BC3, y cuenta con el respaldo del Departamento de Medio Ambiente del ejecutivo de Lakua.

Cordis´ (European Commission Community Research and Development Information Service) post on the recently article published by BC3 “Mitigation implications of an ice-free summer in the Arctic Ocean”

Cordis´ (European Commission Community Research and Development Information Service) post on the recently article published by BC3 "Mitigation implications of an ice-free summer in the Arctic Ocean" Reaching global warming targets under ice-free Arctic summers requires zero emissions by 2045 Ice-albedo feedback as a result of sea-ice melting, notably in the Arctic, is known to reinforce global warming. What is less known, however, is the impact of a no-summer ice scenario on the world’s ambition to maintain global warming below 2°C by 2100. A study conducted under the TRANSRISK project paints a rather dark picture, highlighting the need to better understand the impact of rapid climate change in the region.

Press Release (2017-01-19)

"Ice-free summers in Arctic Ocean could thwart Paris Agreement objectives". A new study shows the current trend of melting sea ice in the Arctic Ocean could put at risk the objectives of the Paris Agreement to address climate change. The study’s authors conclude that, due to the future increase in the sea ice-albedo feedback, global carbon dioxide emission levels would need to reach zero 5 to 15 years earlier than expected to meet targets set by the agreement, substantially increasing mitigation costs. They also show the target of limiting the increase in global temperatures to 1.5 degrees Celsius set by the Paris Agreement would be unachievable without negative carbon emissions.
