Higgins, P.A.T. (2014): Climate Change Risk Management

Higgins, P.A.T. (2014): Climate Change Risk Management. American Meteorological Society (AMS). Washington, D.C. (AMS Policy Program Study.

"Climate change risk management approaches generally fall into four broad categories: 1) mitigation—efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; 2) adaptation—increasing society’s capacity to cope with changes in climate; 3) geoengineering or climate engineering—additional, deliberate manipulation of the earth system that is intended to counteract at least some of the impacts of greenhouse gas emissions; and 4) knowledge-base expansion—efforts to learn and understand more about the climate system, which can help support proactive risk management."
