Met Office creates “Dangerous Climate Change” research programme

The Met Office has announced the beginning of AVOID, a research programme designed to build the evidence based around catastrophic climate change.

The press release, found here, states,

The initiative aims to further improve the Government’s evidence base on the science of climate change and to contribute to securing decisive global action that will reduce and respond to it. It will address key questions such as “how much climate change is too much?” and “What does the world need to do to avoid such levels of climate change?” The key objective of AVOID, in its first year, will be to provide supportive evidence to UK negotiators who aim to secure a robust international agreement in Copenhagen this December which will reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.
