According to Stern, climate change threatens the basic elements of life for people around the world – access to water, food, health, and use of land and the environment.
Many severe impacts:
Rising sea levels
Declining crop yields
Our main propose today, is to show how the consequences of climate change will become disproportionately more damaging with increased warming, giving some practical examples of relationship between rising damages and sectored impacts.
The Clausius-Clapeyron relation , is a way of characterizing the phase transition between two states of matter, such as solid and liquid.
where d P / d T is the slope of the coexistence curve, L is the latent hea t , T is the temperature, and Δ V is the volume change of the phase transition .
In meteorology, a specific derivation of the Clausius-Clapeyron equation is used to describe dependence of saturated water vapor pressure on temperature.
The Clausius-Clapeyron relation plays a crucial role in the current debate on climate change because its solution predicts exponential behavior of saturation water vapor pressure (and, therefore water vapor concentration) as a function of temperature
Economic impacts of hurricanes determined by several factors : total output , capital intensity of output , location of economic activity , number of storms , intensity of storms + geographical features of the affected area.
