Until the world moves away from fossil fuels and reduces emissions to net zero, extreme weather will continue to become more intense
On 12 of October 2021 – a year ago today – our co-founder, friend and colleague Geert Jan van Oldenborgh passed away.
With deepest sadness we must share with you the news that Geert Jan van Oldenborgh, dear friend, amazing scientist, co-founder and co-leader of World Weather Attribution, husband and father, and a wonderful human, passed away on 12 October 2021.
Experiences from the World Weather Attribution collaboration: We attempt to answer the question whether and to what extent the likelihood and intensity of an observed event changed due to the anthropogenic modification of the Earth’s climate using a method called extreme event attribution.
New Research published in the Journal of Climate sheds new light on the long-standing question of how much of the observed changes in Earth’s temperature are due to natural ocean cycles. The short answer is, very little.
