Joining Scientists and Stakeholders in Regional Earth System Modeling
The 19th Conference of the Parties (COP19) to the United Nations Framework Committee on Climate Change concluded in November 2013 with limited progress toward reducing global emissions of greenhouse gases. However, while international negotiations on climate change have stalled, regional initiatives are quietly starting to play an important role in the fight to subvert catastrophic climate change.
