Confronting Climate Change: What Are the Challenges?

Earth’s climate is changing. Our planet's surface temperature, atmospheric and ocean chemistry, precipitation and drought patterns, and sea level have all seen significant changes from only a century ago. While natural factors continue to play a role in the pace and direction of climate change, since the mid-20th century humans have taken increasing control of the climate. Today humans are the primary drivers of contemporary climate change. These developments are forcing the global population to confront some daunting challenges in dealing with the changing climate. Cities, states, national governments and the private sector around the world face difficult decisions about adaptation and/or mitigation. The Paris Climate Accord of 2015, the depressed prices of carbon-based fuels, the accelerating flow of capital to renewable energy sources, and the administration in Washington all contribute to an uncertain future.
