Jason Box, an American living in Copenhagen, is a Professor in Glaciology and Climate at the Geologic Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS). Jason is a contributing author to the most recent three Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) scientific assessment reports and is the lead author on recent Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program (AMAP) reports. Jason joined two sessions hosted by C2G on October 10th at the 2019 Arctic Circle Assembly, where scientists, policy experts, indigenous activists, youth representatives, and other civil society representatives explored some of the toughest questions facing decision-makers today as they contemplate the future of the Arctic.
The third most popular video of 2019 presents a frightening truth: The best-case scenario of climate change is that the world gets just 2°C hotter, which scientists call the "threshold of catastrophe".
Why is that the good news? Because if humans don't change course now, the planet is on a trajectory to reach 4°C at the end of this century, which would bring $600 trillion in global climate damages, double the warfare, and a refugee crisis 100x worse than the Syrian exodus.
David Wallace-Wells explains what would happen at an 8°C and even 13°C increase. These predictions are horrifying, but should not scare us into complacency. "It should make us focus on them more intently," he says.
David Wallace-Wells is a national fellow at the New America Foundation and a columnist and deputy editor at New York magazine. He was previously the deputy editor of The Paris Review. He lives in New York City.

Witness the unveiling of Countdown, a major global campaign to cut greenhouse gas emissions. TED has partnered with scientists, policy makers, organizations, activists and more to create an initiative that everyone in the world can be part of. Check out http://countdown.ted.com to learn how you can get involved — and help turn the tide on climate. [Note: there are two unusual features of this TED Talk. One, it's much longer than our normal, extending a full hour. Two, it's made up of contributions from more than a dozen people, including UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Al Gore, Katharine Hayhoe, Jimmy Kimmel and Yuval Noah Harari, among others. We're putting it out there because the topic deserves this kind of prominence.]

In support of the UN Youth Climate Summit, the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G) hosted a series of interactive games for young climate leaders exploring how society might tackle difficult decisions about whether or not to deploy climate-altering technologies to tackle global heating. Climate Interactive led a thought-provoking “Model-UN-like” negotiating game with the latest En-roads Climate Solutions Simulation – a powerful new interactive exploration of the combined effects of different policies and technologies on the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, and on global temperatures. The session was held at the offices of Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, New York City, September 22, 2019.
There needs to be a fundamental shift in the global approach to tackling climate change and the circular economy can play an essential role. 45% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from how we make and use products like buildings, cars and clothes, and how we produce food.

Mayors, entrepreneurs, innovators, students, scientists, dreamers and doers, there are many roles to play in shaping the world of tomorrow. The question that C40s Women4Climate initiative tackles is how do you empower individuals to think and act in a fundamentally different way? Through a global mentorship program dedicated to women in C40 cities; they aim influence the conversation through leadership events and create new momentum and interest among future leaders.
“Women make up more than half the world’s population, and although they are often disproportionately impacted by climate change, their voices are not always heard due to lack of inclusion and representation at the decision-making level. Now more than ever, enhancing women’s participation and leadership in the conversation around climate action will be critical to securing a healthy, prosperous and sustainable future for us all” (Women4Climate).
How do you empower the next generation of women to lead climate action and justice globally? Watch this session to find out!
This keynote talk was given at the 2019 Bioneers Conference.
Introduction by Kenny Ausubel, Bioneers CEO and Co-Founder.
The visionary goal of Project Drawdown, founded by Paul Hawken, is to actually reverse global warming by drawing carbon out of the atmosphere back down to pre-industrial levels. All the practices and technologies documented in Paul’s best-selling "Drawdown" book are already commonly available, economically viable, and scientifically valid. The true power of Drawdown is its holistic nature. Doing what’s right for the climate means doing the right thing across the board and will also create abundant, meaningful jobs and a vibrant green economy. For over 30 years, Paul has been at the forefront of transformative solutions for people and planet, including his highly influential books "The Ecology of Commerce," "Natural Capitalism" and "Blessed Unrest."

(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) A group of scientists and doctoral students from UC Davis recently traveled to Antarctica where they became the first group to collect turbulence measurements from beneath an ice shelf. With this data, scientists will be able to better understand how quickly ice shelves are melting and to make predictions of how these rates will change under future climate scenarios.
