Tyndall Publications in 2005:
Twenty four projects completed their final Technical Reports and are online Seventeen Working Papers were published and are online Forty-two peer-reviewed journal articles were published Seventeen Books or Chapters became available from academic publishers Highlights since the last Tynd-All Pathways for the UK to achieve its CO2 targets The Tyndall Centre launched in September the UK's most comprehensive analysis to date of how the UK can achieve the Government's climate change targets across all sectors of economy and society. We unveiled a new set of energy scenarios which map pathways from the present day to a decarbonised UK in 2050. The scenarios explore energy supply and options for demand reduction and for the first time include emissions from the international aviation and marine sectors, revealing the true scale of the challenge facing the UK. Called 'Decarbonising the UK' the report was launched in Westminster by keynote speakers the Minister for Climate Change and the Environment Rt Hon. Elliot Morley MP and the Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor Sir David King.

The overall analysis reveals that all householders, motorists and businesses will have to reduce their carbon dioxide pollution to zero if the growing aviation industry is to be incorporated into the UK’s climate change targets. It shows that even if aviation’s current growth is halved from today’s level, the rest of the economy will require carbon dioxide cuts far beyond Government targets. The new findings are part of a five year comprehensive study that sets-out a far reaching agenda for cutting carbon dioxide emissions over the next 45 years by detailing the actions that need to be taken by Government and industry. They are unique in incorporating the different perspectives of energy analysts, engineers, economists and social and environmental scientists into a wide understanding of how policymakers can achieve its 60% target of carbon dioxide reduction.

Drawing upon the practical experience of these islanders and the latest academic thinking, Emma Tompkins and colleagues at the University of East Anglia have written a guidebook to help the islands of the UK Overseas Territories and other regions prepare for the impacts of hurricanes, storms and sea level rise - predicted to change as global warming further influences the climate. “While media networks made Hurricanes Katrina and Rita seem like a new phenomenon for 2005, the small islands of the Caribbean are hit each year and every year. I hope that other islands and regions can learn from the lessons and approaches that we have put into the guidebook.” said Dr Emma Tompkins who led the book and the research behind it. The inspiration behind the guidebook is Dr Tompkins’ research in partnership with the Cayman Islands’ Government on better understanding preparedness for the impacts of hurricanes and climate change. The guidebook describes in detail the reasons why climate change is creating risks for small islands, why small islands need to address the risks, and it offers methods for managing those risks. For more information www.tyndall.ac.uk/publications/surviving.pdf Further funded for our groundbreaking research on climate change solutions Professor Mike Hulme is pleased to announce a further three years funding from the UK's Research Councils to support the unique mission of the Tyndall Centre in doing high quality climate change science that is truly useful for both scientific theory and for policy practice. "We will continue to break new ground in innovative research on several national and international climate change themes and be a world exemplar for doing joined-up science for society" said Professor Hulme. The panel of international experts that spanned top scientists to business stakeholders concluded in their review of the first three years of Tyndall, "... that no comparable programme in its initial years has come further, faster or produced more exciting results." For more information www.tyndall.ac.uk/media/press_releases/tyndallfunding.pdf New lessons for technology policy and climate change The cost of a low carbon future may be no greater than the costs of investing in current energy technologies concludes our major set of studies analysing long-term technology. We have shown that the net cost of mitigation technologies depends crucially on the extent to which policy measures can reduce and stimulate innovation costs. The research is a significant departure to the traditional cost-benefit analysis of environmental problems, recognising that current technologies and costs are a poor guide to the energy sector in 2050. The thinking behind this work is that market economies are better characterised by successive waves of new clusters of technologies which in turn change the economic structures of production and consumption. For example, the current wave of IT continues to change the way that the global economy works. And to answer the ‘how much cost?’ question, the answer is between 0-2% of world GDP by 2050. This is equivalent to delaying reaching the global economic output of 2050 to a year later in 2051. By this time, GDP is likely to have risen by two to three hundred percent in most economies. A full briefing for policy people took place in April www.tyndall.ac.uk/publications/briefing_notes/note13.pdf City workshop for climate change investors City investment professionals think that corporate investment needs to include long-term issues like climate change, concluded a Tyndall-funded stakeholder workshop with asset managers. The top three barriers to incorporating climate change in City thinking were the quality and availability of relevant information, and the restrictedness of the investment and asset management process. Institutional investors can also play a role in climate change policies through managing energy use both in-house and in their extensive property portfolios. The workshop identified a clear need for Trustees of pension funds to consider climate change in their investments - insurers Munich Re have costed recent extreme weather events at €10 billion. The full workshop report is online www.tyndall.ac.uk/research/theme2/final_reports/t3_25.pdf UK needs twenty-five million whole-house makeovers to match its global warming goals A massive cut in carbon dioxide pollution from British homes can meet Government aspirations if the necessary polices are applied now, says a comprehensive research report that was launched in March at the Royal Society by Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. The 40%

House report sets out a far-reaching policy agenda that prescribes cuts in energy and carbon dioxide pollution from existing and future housing. It details the actions to be taken by the Government, the European Commission, manufacturers and householders if carbon dioxide emissions from the nation’s housing stock are going to be only 40% of today’s level, in line with Government targets. This research into greenhouse gases from domestic houses is a component part of Decarbonising the UK, see item above. For more information www.eci.ox.ac.uk/lowercf/40house_programme.htm Greenhouse East scenarios for the East of England A unique collaboration between the Tyndall Centre and East of England policymakers has produced scenarios for reducing the region’s greenhouse gas pollution and shown policies for adapting to climate change. They hypothesise how sectors such as housing, transport and industry that are important to the Easter Region’s economic policy might look in 2050 after emissions reductions close to 60% have been achieved, in line with the Government’s aspirations. The method for creating the scenarios can be rolled-out and adapted to all UK regions. www.tyndall.ac.uk/publications/greeneast.pdf Defining dangerous climate change special edition journal The notion of "dangerous climate change" constitutes an important development of the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. But it persists as an ambiguous and subjective phrase about danger with multiple definitions. It also implicitly contains the question what to do about the complex and multi-disciplinary risk issues that climate change poses. This special issue of the journal Risk Analysis contains nine papers based from a Tyndall funded workshop that explored perspectives of dangerous climate change from physical science, social science, health and media angles www.blackwell-synergy.com/toc/RISK/25/6 Eight Tyndall evidences for the G8 summit In July we published Key8 for G8 to coincide with the G8 Summit in Scotland. The booklet captures eight Tyndall research discoveries to inform what leaders can do in response to climate change, selected from the first five years of Tyndall research. Each of our key findings carries the Tyndall trademark of partnering natural, environmental, social and engineering scientists with public policy debates. www.tyndall.ac.uk/publications/key8forg8.pdf Supporting the British Council’s ZeroCarbonCity campaign ZeroCarbonCity is the British Council’s global campaign to raise awareness about climate change and the energy challenges facing the world’s cities and Tyndall staff have given numerous technical talks and public discussions around climate change and what can be done. We have mostly focused our contribution on countries where demand for energy is increasing with economic recovery, including Russia, Slovakia, Poland, Estonia, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, among others.

Page 3 of 8
nature of climate-society interactions in Africa and the scope for possible future collaborations. Themes include: Managing water resources variability; Coastal, lake and wetland-based livelihood systems; Socio-economic effects of floods and droughts; Adapting to drought in the Sahel; Lessons for adaptation to future climate change. 10 January – Estonia Europe workshop The British Council is sponsoring a two-day workshop in Estonia (9-10 January 2006) on the impacts in Europe of a changing climate and strategies for adaptation and mitigation, and has invited eight younger researchers to attend from the UK. The co-organisers are the University of Tartu (Estonia) and the Tyndall Centre (UK). 17 January – Climate change: What do the public now think of nuclear ? Public support for nuclear power has historically been low, but what about now when it is being promoted as a low carbon source of electricity? This meeting will launch research by the Centre for Environmental Risk at UEA and the Tyndall Centre into what the UK public think of nuclear, renewables and fossil fuelled power in a context of climate change. March – EC ADAM research begins The launch of the major ADAM research project (Adaptation and Mitigation Strategies), funded at €13m by the EC and coordinated by Professor Mike Hulme at Tyndall Centre HQ and the University of East Anglia. ADAM runs from 2006-2009 and will lead to a better integrated understanding of the trade-offs and conflicts that exist between European adaptation and mitigation policies. It will support EU policy development in the next stage of the development of the Kyoto Protocol and inform the emergence of new strategies for adapting to climate change. It comprises a consortium of 25 research organisations from 15 countries, including China and India. For further information firstname.lastname@example.org 10 March - Climate change and Africa: linking science and policy for adaptation This one day workshop will provide a forum to refine knowledge for policy applications in relation to African adaptation to climate change. It is intended for researchers, development agencies and those involved in policy advice, and is organised by the Tyndall Centre (Declan Conway and Kate Brown) and the International Institute for Environment and Development. Further information from email@example.com April – What are the economic costs of climate change policy? The peer-reviewed publication Energy Journal will have a special edition on the new economics of technology policy for climate change. See above item ‘New lessons for technology policy and climate change’. April – Launch of Tyndall Phase II The launch of Tyndall Centre Phase II will begin a research consortium that builds on the intellectual success and capacity building of the Tyndall Centre. Phase II focuses research around six essential research questions for managing and better understanding what can be done in response to climate change.
