This post is a tale of two climate conferences, and a forecast for a substantial risk of climate confusion later this week. A meeting of the world’s “climate vulnerable ” nations, aiming to nail down longstanding, but largely unfulfilled pledges of aid from the world’s industrial powers, is wrapping up in Dhaka, Bangladesh (here’s the latest draft of the planned statement ). As this meeting ends, another is getting into high gear in Kampala, Uganda. There, climate scientists and government officials from around the world are tweaking the summary of a forthcoming report, “Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation .” It would’ve been better if the timing had been reversed, given the signs that many of the science findings of the extremes report, from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change , are largely not reflected in the...
