Climate as a complex, self-regulating system
Abstract. This paper explores whether climate is complicated or complex by examining the performance of a heat engine in the tropical Pacific, the Pacific Ocean heat engine, which is linked to aExpand
Diminishing Opportunities for Sustainability of Coastal Cities in the Anthropocene: A Review
The world is urbanizing most rapidly in tropical to sub-temperate areas and in coastal zones. Climate change along with other global change forcings will diminish the opportunities for sustainabilityExpand

The research article of Gillett et al. was published in Nature Climate Change (NCC) in March 2021. The objective of the NCC study was to simulate human-induced forcings to warming by applying 13Expand
Monitoring climate change and child health: The case for putting children in all policies
The newly established Children in All Policies 2030 initiative will work with the Lancet Countdown to provide the evidence on the climate change responses necessary to protect and promote the health of children. Expand
Who cares about climate?
This year sees the 26th International United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), intended to create an international framework for action on climate change, and the flame of fossil fuel combustion has failed to even flicker in response to politicians’ puff. Expand


Heat stored in the Earth system: where does the energy go?
Abstract. Human-induced atmospheric composition changes cause a radiative imbalance at the top of the atmosphere which is driving global warming. This Earth energy imbalance (EEI) is the mostExpand

Changes in Earth’s Energy Budget during and after the “Pause” in Global Warming: An Observational Perspective
This study examines changes in Earth’s energy budget during and after the global warming “pause” (or “hiatus”) using observations from the Clouds and the Earth’s Radiant Energy System. We find aExpand
Climate-change–driven accelerated sea-level rise detected in the altimeter era
Simple extrapolation of the quadratic implies global mean sea level could rise 65 ± 12 cm by 2100 compared with 2005, roughly in agreement with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 5th Assessment Report (AR5) model projections. Expand
An imperative to monitor Earth's energy imbalance
The current Earth's energy imbalance (EEI) is mostly caused by human activity, and is driving global warming. The absolute value of EEI represents the most fundamental metric defining the status ofExpand

El Niño Southern Oscillation phenomena
At intervals that vary from 2 to 10 yr sea-surface temperatures and rainfall are unusually high and the tradewinds are unusually weak over the tropical Pacific Ocean. These Southern Oscillation ElExpand
