Relative impacts of human-induced climate change and natural climate variability

  title={Relative impacts of human-induced climate change and natural climate variability},
  author={Mike Hulme and Elaine M. Barrow and N. W. Arnell and Paula A. Harrison and Timothy C. Johns and Thomas E. Downing},
Assessments of the regional impacts of human-induced climate change on a wide range of social and environmental systems are fundamental for determining the appropriate policy responses to climate change. Yet regional-scale impact assessments are fraught with difficulties, such as the uncertainties of regional climate-change prediction, the specification of appropriate environmental-response models, and the interpretation of impact results in the context of future socio-economic and… CONTINUE READING
