Research and the Climate Crisis
It is estimated that human activities are responsible for 1.0°C of global warming above pre-industrial levels. This warming from emissions will persist for centuries to millennia and will cause long-term changes in our climate system. The results of this are projected to include devastating impacts on biodiversity and ecosystems, including species loss and extinction, and significant risks to health, livelihood, food security, water supply and economic growth.
The climate crisis knows no boundaries. It can only be tackled through alignment, collaboration, and a willingness to directly address the crisis and act.
Our knowledge on climate, prediction and crisis planning are all underpinned by the peer-reviewed research made available by scholarly publishers. Through advancing trusted research, publishers help climate research reach the widest possible audiences – providing knowledge, context and insight.
