Posted on 11/09/2017 11:12:04 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
When a damaging heat wave occurs, how much responsibility do the major greenhouse gas-emitting countries bear? It's a question scientists say they're getting closer to answering at a country-by-country level.
As international climate negotiators meet in Germany this week, a team of scientists has published a method for estimating how individual countries' shares of global greenhouse gas emissions over time contributed to the risk of specific extreme climate events, like heat waves, occurring in other countries.
The new techniques "make it possible to assign extreme events to human-induced climate change and historical emissions," and "allow losses and damage associated with such events to be assigned country-level responsibility," the scientists, from World Weather Attribution and the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research,>/b> wrote in a study describing their methods. The peer-reviewed article was published in the journal Nature Climate Change.
Addressing the imbalance is implicit in the Paris climate agreement.
The researchers said their method is particularly apt for heat waves, which have been strongly linked to overall human-caused warming.
U.S. emissions were found to have increased the risk of the heat wave by 34 percent, while China and Indiawhich have lower historic emissionsincreased the risk by 21 and 18 percent, respectively.
Negotiators have approached the subject of how to account for loss and damage from climate change gingerly because rifts between countries involved in the negotiations could disrupt the overall process.

Riiiiiight. Because “extreme climate events” never occurred before Al Gore.
Going out on a limb here, but I'll guess:
US --> 100%
Everybody else --> 0%
Who is guarding the gate at FR? Why all these propagandistic, left oriented climate posts?
Crush the “dictatorship of the rich Bourgeois County”.
These scumbags want to start a Social Justice county to county Climate PC war. If they were serious, the federal government being so wasteful, all federal employees would have its taxes doubled, but none of that is discussed, because they want a California style SJW county to county war.
This is what is known in the actual scientific community as completely fabricated crap.
Only liberals would try to find some way to measure and place blame for natural disasters and natural weather variations.
What % of the population of the country in question is white? Twice that number should be about right.
If extreme climate events were indeed real and the situation dire, Al Gore would be living in a modest house instead of multiple mansions, and he would be flying commercial, instead of in his fuel guzzling private jet.
When they call an “extreme weather event” an “extreme climate event” you know they are just making up stuff.
To defeat the enemy you must know him. If you don't read his lies you can not respond to them.
“Who is guarding the gate at FR? Why all these propagandistic, left oriented climate posts?”
So I take it you don’t want to know what the other side is doing and saying?
There are no extreme climate events. There are extreme weather events which are easily explained by atmospheric patterns present prior to and at the time of the event. Climate and weather are not the same thing. Don’t try to play one of as the other.
Psychosis is an abnormal condition of the mind that involves a loss of contact with reality (see "Liberalism"). People experiencing psychosis may exhibit personality changes and thought disorder. Depending on its severity, this may be accompanied by unusual or bizarre behavior, as well as difficulty with social interaction and impairment in carrying out daily life activities.
Psychosis as a sign of a psychiatric disorder is a diagnosis of exclusion. That is, a new-onset episode of psychosis is not considered a symptom of a psychiatric disorder until other relevant and known causes of psychosis are properly excluded. Medical and biological laboratory tests should exclude central nervous system diseases and injuries, diseases and injuries of other organs, psychoactive substances, and toxins as causes of symptoms of psychosis before any psychiatric illness can be diagnosed. In medical training, psychosis as a sign of illness is often compared to fever since both can have multiple causes that are not readily apparent.
is a rainbow an extreme climate event?
It seems it takes precise conditions to make them visible.
Know thy enemy.
That’s a great metric idea! Can’t think of a better one.
