Past Articles on Climate and Columbia

In collaboration with Deutsche Bank Climate Change Advisors, the Columbia Climate Center has written a report addressing the major claims of climate skeptics. By providing detailed responses to the most common claims of those who dismiss the reality of human-induced climate change, the report concludes that these claims do not undermine the assertion that climate change is real and is a serious long-term threat. The report, intended particuarly for the financial sector, provides a fresh perspective on the climate change debate, and illustrates the wide implications of climate change.
