Literature review: Mitigation problem for Climate

The “Ten Problems for Climate in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. energy policies, 
  2. effects,
  3. machine learning,
  4. communication,
  5. non-state actors,
  6. social sciences,
  7. green infrastructures,
  8. mitigation,
  9. regional environments,
  10. economics.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

8 Mitigation

THE PROBLEM — Science is telling us that the impacts of climate change are happening now, and faster than we had predicted. The Climate Action Summit 2019 focused on nine key action areas and the United Kingdom quickly made net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 law. Cities, the land and surface water supplies are central to both global climate change mitigation and the implementation of low-carbon development strategies. So are bioenergy, microorganisms, water sanitation and, most importantly, corporate firms emitting greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

CONCLUSIONS — Grounded in science and building on the global framework of the Paris Agreement, the recent Climate Action Summit 2019 focused on nine key action areas. In the United Kingdom, there are grounds for optimism because of the Parliament’s decision to make net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 law. Attempts to harness extreme weather experiences as a route to engaging the public must be attentive to the heterogeneity of opinion on the attributability of extreme weather events to climate change. Cities are home to more than half of the world population and are responsible for three quarters of global energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Land is both a source and a sink of greenhouse gases and plays a key role in the exchange of energy, water and aerosols between the land surface and atmosphere. A novel framework has been applied to investigate the potential impacts of changes in climate and water use on regional water availability and water stress. Biomass could exceed 20% of final energy consumption in 2050 if agricultural yields improve significantly and effective land zoning is implemented. Environmental changes that affect marine microbial photosynthesis and subsequent storage of fixed carbon in deep waters are of major importance for the global carbon cycle. Water is becoming more and more polluted by human activities and will heavily suffer the consequences of the increases in average and extreme temperatures. Arguing that the pandemic justifies at least temporarily dismissing climate change as a secondary concern, while prioritizing economic recovery, seemingly resonates with the general public.
