Panel: Climate Change

DOWNLOAD PDF

Moderator: Prof. Ingo Stadler

Is it still weather or already climate? Whenever we observe extreme weather conditions some are warning with the consequences of climate change while others mention this is just weather and extreme weather conditions always existed. Latest massive fires in Australia and the reaction of the Australian government are a good example for this and researchers stated that this is one of those examples where climate change can be observed.

This panel wants to discuss with participants from all over the world which phenomena with climate change evidences could be observed and how this is dealt with in societal discussion.

As SDEWES’ strength is more on climate mitigation as on climate itself we will discuss on how different regions react on this: does the people react with personal changes in daily behaviour? Are there policies with adequate plans?

Or can capitalism itself – maybe one of the origins of the problem – solve the problem starting with the latest announcements that flow of money goes towards sustainable investments?

Transforming Climate and Energy
show abstract

In response to the Paris Agreement’s invitation to pursue efforts for keeping global warming to 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels and also fully in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, The European Commission presented a long-term strategic vision to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, showing how Europe can lead the way to climate neutrality – an economy with net-zero GHG emissions. The panel will discuss the major trends upon which the achieving climate neutrality will rely on, such as reshaping global and European energy markets, regulatory and policy frameworks, and technological progress.
