In this article we look at a new way of thinking about the effects of climate change on water storage systems. The approach presented is more effective for guiding analysis of climate change problems.
Climate change brings uncertainty to the future utility of the world’s water storage systems. Add the complexity of the physical processes behind our weather, and it becomes natural to focus on what is specific to the problem at hand. There are techniques for doing so, which we call climate change impact assessments. But they are often labelled in a way that prompts unnecessary comparisons. This distracts from the key considerations needed to solve these problems.
This is why we need a new way of thinking. Continue reading
