Congratulations to Joshua Angrist and Guido Imbens for being awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics for their work in developing methodologies in the analysis of causal relationships.

The methodologies are useful in many fields of study beyond economics and allow precise conclusions to be drawn about cause and effect from natural experiments (observation of naturally occurring conditions and events rather than planned, controlled experiments).

This is has been a huge problem in many fields -- establishing cause and effect rather than just correlation between variables. Their methods have made that easier.

**Scientists issue new climate adaptation 'scorecard'**

"A new study offers a 'scorecard' for climate adaptation projects -- a set of 16 criteria that can be used to evaluate climate adaptation projects and inform their design."

Top climate scientists are sceptical that nations will rein in global warming

Nature conducted an anonymous survey of the 233 living #IPCC authors last month and received responses from 92 scientists — about 40% of the group. Their answers suggest strong scepticism that governments will markedly slow the pace of #GlobalWarming, despite political promises made by international leaders as part of the 2015 #ParisClimateAgreement.

Earth Is Set For Disastrous 2.7°C Temperature Rise Under Nations' Current Net-Zero Pledges

Unless world leaders seriously up their pledges at the #COP26 climate change conference next week, the planet is set for a 2.7°C rise in global temperatures by the end of the century. This would be a disastrous rise in temperature, bringing with it a significant increase in #droughts, #floods, #heatwaves, and the death of #coral #reefs.

#COP26: Document leak reveals nations #lobbying to change key #climate report

The leak reveals #SaudiArabia, #Japan and #Australia are among countries asking the #UN to play down the need to move rapidly away from #FossilFuels.
It also shows some wealthy nations are questioning paying more to poorer states to move to greener technologies.
This "lobbying" raises questions for the COP26 climate summit in November.

Fearing Govt Whitewash, Scientists Leak Draft Part Three of IPCC Report

Concerned that aspects of its conclusions will be diluted by policymakers, a group of scientists has leaked a draft of a forthcoming #IPCC report, which argues that to avert further #climate chaos, global #carbon #emissions must peak by 2025 and all #FossilFuel plants worldwide must be shuttered by the end of the decade.
