At a particularly crucial time for discussion and policy-making around climate change, this PLOS Collection – which collates research on mitigating and adapting to the changing climate – has been updated with articles published recently in PLOS. Topics covered in the collection include Alternative Energy, Conservation Science, Human Behaviour and Psychology, Industry and Engineering, and Policy and Politics.
Since the publication of the James Hansen article Assessing “Dangerous Climate Change”: Required Reduction of Carbon Emissions to Protect Young People, Future Generations and Nature, PLOS ONE has invited submissions in a call to action on climate change. Today we include a selection of recently published work to further develop the evidence base within the collection, including the following articles:
- Tracking Public Beliefs About Anthropogenic Climate Change
- Talking about Climate Change and Global Warming
- Child Centred Approach to Climate Change and Health Adaptation through Schools in Bangladesh: A Cluster Randomised Intervention Trial
- Religion Does Matter for Climate Change Attitudes and Behavior
- Conservation Planning for Offsetting the Impacts of Development: A Case Study of Biodiversity and Renewable Energy in the Mojave Desert
Using an Open Access platform to highlight the important interdisciplinary work in this collection provides climate researchers, scientists, policymakers and the public a much more accessible means of engaging with this important content.
On the PLOS Blogs Network this week look out for an in depth analysis of two of the new additions to the Collection by blogger Robert Wilson: The Impacts of Wind Speed Trends and 30-Year Variability in Relation to Hydroelectric Reservoir Inflows on Wind Power in the Pacific Northwest and Normal and Extreme Wind Conditions for Power at Coastal Locations in China.,
