Totally dominated by environmental factors. If this is the opinion of the World Economic Forum, I’m curious to see how and when this will translate in to prioritised action. The main message is though that in principle environmental campaigners and those they are lobbying to make changes actually appear to be on the same side, no?

Environmental scientist. I am glaciologist specialising in glacier-climate interactions to better understand the climate system. The point of this is to understand how glaciated envionments might change in the future - how the glaciers will respond and what the impact on associated water resources and hazard potential will be.
