Video course: How to understand climate change easily!

This online course was created by WWF Germany (World Wide Fund For Nature) in cooperation with DKK (German Climate Consortium) and was funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung. The following content is covered (with Prof. Dr. Mojib Latif, amongst others):

– The climate system and its components
– How does the natural greenhouse effect work?
– The man-made greenhouse effect
– Fossil fuels: the basis of our prosperity
– Climate models – a look into the future
– Basis for climate model calculations

Lecture series: Climate Change and Me

“What are the scientific findings behind the reports on climate change and its effects? What does science know in detail about the various aspects of this topic? And how do these findings play into society, how can science influence public awareness and have a political impact? To shed light on these questions, scientists at the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf (HHU) have initiated an interdisciplinary lecture series on various aspects of climate change and its effects”.

Video: How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted

The short film shows what the earth would look like if all the ice on earth were to melt.

Animations from Anti Lipponen

The artist Anti Lipponen creates outstanding animations on climate change from data sets.

Visualizations by Ed Hawkins

Ed Hawkins is a climate scientist at the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) at the University of Reading and co-author of the IPCC AR5 report.

Especially his Warming Stripes and his spiral animations are very beautiful and impressive.

Visualized climate simulations of DKRZ

“A considerable part of the computing power of DKRZ [German Climate Computing Centre] is used by climate modellers for extensive simulations within the framework of national and international research initiatives and model comparison projects – including calculations carried out in view of the world climate status reports (IPCC reports).

Especially noteworthy, for example, is the animation of the RCP scenarios. An overview can be found in the gallery.

Lecture: “Why do we not do what we should?” by Prof. Harald Lesch

A lecture from the lecture series “Environment” at the TU Munich from 18.06.2018.

Animated film: Climate change – causes and worldwide consequences explained for children

“Again and again people talk about climate change – but what actually is climate change? What are the causes and the consequences? We will explain it to you!”

Animated film from “Die Sternsinger”.

Film: Tomorrow – the world is full of solutions

“This film should be part of the education of all political leaders worldwide!”
