Climate Change & Praedictix
Climate Change is Here
The climate is changing, faster than any time in the geological record, according to scientists. CO2 levels are higher than they’ve been in at least 3 million years, and rising steadily. Warming oceans are making some hurricanes more intense and causing sea levels to rise, resulting in more frequent coastal flooding. Warmer air can hold more water, sparking an increase in the frequency and severity of inland flooding. Western fires are bigger, lasting longer, and rapid warming of the Arctic region may be impacting the jet stream, allowing weather systems to stall with greater frequency. Climate and weather are flip-sides of the same coin. Change the climate and the symptoms will surface in weather patterns over time. We’ve gone from climate theory to reality. Weather events that would have occurred naturally are often super-sized or “juiced”, with ever more disruption, displacement and cost to homeowners and business.
How is Praedictix Involved?
Scientists are connecting the dots, analyzing the link between a rapidly changing climate – and weather volatility. How do we get this information into the hands of growing businesses to help them plan for their future? Praedictix has launched a new venture to help businesses prepare for climate change. Climatrends, based in Minnesota, conducts climate scenario analyses for their clients, which involves the development of different future climate scenarios used in the analysis and planning of the potential risks and opportunities associated with the different climate outcomes.
