The consensus among research scientists on anthropogenic global warming has grown to 100%, based on a review of 11,602 peer-reviewed articles on “climate change” and “global warming” published in the first 7 months of 2019. 

Variability and trends of climate in east Wollega zone, Western Ethiopia

Climate change is a major concern for the environmental, social and economic sectors of our world. The purpose of the study was to examine climate variability and trends in East Wollega Zone, Western

Multi-Risk Climate Mapping for the Adaptation of the Venice Metropolitan Area

Climate change risk reduction requires cities to undertake urgent decisions. One of the principal obstacles that hinders effective decision making is insufficient spatial knowledge frameworks. Cities

DeSMOG: Detecting Stance in Media On Global Warming

TLDR
This work studies opinion-framing in the global warming debate, an increasingly partisan issue that has received little attention in NLP, and introduces DeSMOG, a dataset of stance-labeled GW sentences, and releases the stance dataset, model, and lexicons of framing devices.

Climate Psychology: What is preventing the uptake in lifestyle changes that would significantly reduce one’s environmental impact?

Human consumption and human emissions are rapidly destroying our home planet and the vital ingredients of life—the science is clear and abundant. And so, we need to make extreme changes in many

DeSMOG: Detecting Stance in Media On Global Warming

TLDR
This work studies opinion-framing in the global warming debate, an increasingly partisan issue that has received little attention in NLP, and introduces DeSMOG, a dataset of stance-labeled GW sentences, and releases the stance dataset, model, and lexicons of framing devices for future work on opinionframing and the automatic detection of GW stance.

An Emissions Trading System to reach NDC targets in the Chilean electric sector

In the context of the Paris Agreement, Chile has pledged to reduce Greenhouse Gases (GHG) intensity by at least 30% below 2007 levels by 2030, and to phase out coal as a energy source by 2040, among

Automatic Classification of Neutralization Techniques in the Narrative of Climate Change Scepticism

TLDR
This work draws on social science to introduce the problem to the community of nlp, present the granularity of the coding schema and collect manual annotations of neutralised techniques in text relating to climate change, and experiment with supervised and semi- supervised BERT-based models.

Believing to Belong: Addressing the Novice-Expert Problem in Polarized Scientific Communication

ABSTRACT There is a large gap between the specialized knowledge of scientists and laypeople’s understanding of the sciences. The novice-expert problem arises when non-experts are confronted with
