Impact of Climate Change on Food Production[edit]

Suggest that this section is just a summary and that a new page is created for this item. Both adaptation and mitigation strategies relating to the consequences of climate change are not only very important but also could give rise to a wealth of material. Will look forwarding to researching and contributing to this new page. - Paul Millsom

Where best to use reference?[edit] (talk) 07:00, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

Research on how to adapt.[edit]

There is evidence that justification impairs adaptability to climate change. See "Advice of ways to stop justifying" on Pure science Wiki, (talk) 13:44, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

35 deg C or 95 degrees F[edit]

Where is this temperature that humans can't 'survive' in come from. What is meant by it? Is it the lowest temperature, highest temperature, average temperature, for what period does it refer to, etc? I find this claim dubious in the face of humans surviving in much hotter temperatures than 95°. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:B:A3C0:7:453C:D841:2FA8:A6B2 (talk) 00:51, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

This issue has been outstanding for almost six months. Consider deleting sentence. SWOldfield (talk) 04:58, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Out of Date[edit]

Much of this article is using references that have since been updated. Specifically it cites the IPCC 3rd assessment report where the 5th report is in the process of being released. SWOldfield (talk) 05:00, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Update title to "Adaption to climate change"[edit]

The phrase "global warming" is generally being replaced by "climate change" since the effects of climate change are not uniform across the globe and, indeed, some areas could actually cool under some scenarios. I propose changing the title of this page accordingly.
Enquire (talk) 21:33, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Also, saying "climate change" instead of "global warming" could perhaps make the article more neutral, because "global warming" as a phrase has increasingly become associated with non-scientific controversies. I agree the name should be changed. User:Luke_Maier 21:08, 30 April 2014

Agreed. Climate is a very complex phenomenon, and the effects of overall global warming may be so diverse that only "climate change" may encompass them. Kortoso (talk) 17:45, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Why hasn't this or the the title of the Global warming article been altered to Climate change yet?Pvilafl (talk) 19:38, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
By convention, we've decided on Wikipedia to use global warming for the current stuff and climate change for the longer-term fluctuations. There really isn't a solid reason to use one or the other, except that there's a need for different terminology. That, and the fact that we had articles on global warming even before political consultant Frank Luntz tried to reframe global warming as climate change to make it sound less scary. Guettarda (talk) 20:04, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
Seems that some political folks would like to call it climate change 'cause "climate is always changing ... so we don't need to do anything 'bout it". However the current episode of change is largely anthropogenic, and we rather do need to "do something about it." The current episode of change is called "global warming" to distinguish it from the always changing climate. Of course the vested interests (big energy and their political pawns) $$ and various other "head in sand" types don't want to see it. Ain't it fun :) Vsmith (talk) 03:31, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Climate adaptation must not be whimsically defined[edit]

Climate adaptation must have its own very specific definition so people know how to work about it - not just a whimsical one. Here is one article which could probably give light: If adaptation has been done before the issue of climate change then today's definition must be something heavier and different and has sense and it is valued and practiced and has favorable results in tangent to life. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:48, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
