Great to see this. The #Reading2050 vision is so important for our town. #Adaptation to #climatechange is going to be vital - we are already testing the limits of our infrastructure. Looking forward to more work on this in the new year. (date: 12/11/2020)

How Climate Change Impacts Our Water

Good summary of impacts of climate change on hydrology. Quote: In fact, “most of the climate change impacts come down to water,” says Upmanu Lall, director of the Columbia Water Center. When people talk about climate change affecting agricultural output, sea level rise, wildfires and extreme weather — “they’re all essentially a water story,” says Lall. (date: 24/09/2020)

Impact of paved front gardens on current and future urban flooding - Kelly - 2018 - Journal of Flood Risk Management - Wiley Online Library

Domestic front gardens provide a valuable asset in the control of surface water runoff in towns and cities. Projected increases in future rainfall make this asset increasingly important, while growing trends of paving over front gardens puts this asset at jeopardy. The contribution of paved front gardens to the overall urban flood burden is often neglected. This paper quantifies rainwater runoff from a typical front garden using numerical simulation. Runoff is quantified in terms of both current and future rainfall intensities and in relation to variables of impermeable cover and soil type. (date: 22/09/2020)

Climate tipping points — too risky to bet against

Here we summarize evidence on the threat of exceeding tipping points, identify knowledge gaps and suggest how these should be plugged. We explore the effects of such large-scale changes, how quickly they might unfold and whether we still have any control over them. Also discusses cascading tipping points and the maths of risks and urgency = emergency (date: 21/09/2020)
