Transboundary health impacts of transported global air pollution and international trade

  
Nature, Vol. 543, No. 7647. (29 March 2017), pp. 705-709, https://doi.org/10.1038/nature21712

Abstract

Millions of people die every year from diseases caused by exposure to outdoor air pollution. Some studies have estimated premature mortality related to local sources of air pollution, but local air quality can also be affected by atmospheric transport of pollution from distant sources. International trade is contributing to the globalization of emission and pollution as a result of the production of goods (and their associated emissions) in one region for consumption in another region. The effects of international trade on ...

 

Short-term effects of particulate matter on mortality during forest fires in Southern Europe: results of the MED-PARTICLES Project

  
Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Vol. 72, No. 5. (01 May 2015), pp. 323-329, https://doi.org/10.1136/oemed-2014-102459

Abstract

[Background] An association between occurrence of wildfires and mortality in the exposed population has been observed in several studies with controversial results for cause-specific mortality. In the Mediterranean area, forest fires usually occur during spring–summer, they overlap with Saharan outbreaks, are associated with increased temperature and their health effects are probably due to an increase in particulate matter. [Aim and methods] We analysed the effects of wildfires and particulate matter (PM10) on mortality in 10 southern European cities in Spain, France, Italy ...

 

Global trends in wildfire and its impacts: perceptions versus realities in a changing world

  
Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B, Vol. 371, No. 1696. (05 June 2016), 20150345, https://doi.org/10.1098/rstb.2015.0345

Abstract

Wildfire has been an important process affecting the Earth’s surface and atmosphere for over 350 million years and human societies have coexisted with fire since their emergence. Yet many consider wildfire as an accelerating problem, with widely held perceptions both in the media and scientific papers of increasing fire occurrence, severity and resulting losses. However, important exceptions aside, the quantitative evidence available does not support these perceived overall trends. Instead, global area burned appears to have overall declined over past decades, and there is increasing evidence that there is ...

Natural capital and bioeconomy: challenges and opportunities for forestry

  
Annals of Silvicultural Research, Vol. 38, No. 2. (2014), https://doi.org/10.12899/asr-1013

Abstract

Over the last decades, the stock of natural capital has been globally reduced by human-induced effects such as climate change, and land use and cover modifications. In particular, the continuous flow of goods and services from ecosystems to people is currently under threat if the current human activities still remain unsustainable. The recent bioeconomy strategy is an important opportunity to halt the loss of biodiversity and the reduction of services provision, from global to local scale. In this framework, forest sector ...

 

Estimation of direct landslide costs in industrialized countries: Challenges, concepts, and case study

  
In Landslide Science for a Safer Geoenvironment (2014), pp. 661-667, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-319-05050-8_103

Abstract

This paper presents a short summary of the challenges and concepts in previous landslide loss studies and introduces a methodological framework for the estimation of direct landslide costs in industrialized countries. A case study of landslide losses for federal roads in the Lower Saxon Uplands (NW Germany) exemplifies the application of this methodology in a regional setting. [\n] Globally, the costs of landslide damage are proven to be of economic significance, but yet efforts for their systematic estimation are still rare. The ...

 

Landslide process and impacts: A proposed classification method

  
Catena, Vol. 104 (May 2013), pp. 219-232, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.catena.2012.11.013

Abstract

Various impacts of landslides have increased in past decades due to the rapid growth of urbanization in the developing world. Landslide effects have damaged many aspects of human life and the natural environment, and many difficulties remain for accurate assessments and evaluations. Many investigations by landslide researchers have attempted to achieve a comprehensive view of landslide consequences, however, the lack of further systematic studies have resulted in a limited view. Hence, this study considers an alternative classification theory concerning significant concepts ...

 

Economic valuation of landslide damage in hilly regions: A case study from Flanders, Belgium

  
Science of The Total Environment, Vol. 447 (March 2013), pp. 323-336, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2013.01.025

Abstract

Several regions around the globe are at risk of incurring damage from landslides, but only few studies have concentrated on a quantitative estimate of the overall damage caused by landslides at a regional scale. This study therefore starts with a quantitative economic assessment of the direct and indirect damage caused by landslides in a 2910 km2 study area located west of Brussels, a low-relief region susceptible to landslides. Based on focus interviews as well as on semi-structured interviews with homeowners, civil ...

 

Core concept: ecosystem services

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 112, No. 24. (16 June 2015), pp. 7337-7338, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1503837112

Abstract

[Excerpt] If one were to build a healthy biosphere from scratch on another planet, what kinds of ecosystems and combinations of species would be necessary to support humans? This is the thought experiment that ecologist Gretchen Daily, a Bing professor at Stanford University, poses to illustrate the crucial role that the natural environment plays in supporting human society. [\n] Efforts to spotlight the various ways human existence relies on our natural surroundings began in the 1980s, partly instigated by Daily’s doctoral ...

 

Environmental tipping points significantly affect the cost−benefit assessment of climate policies

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 112, No. 15. (14 April 2015), pp. 4606-4611, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1503890112

Abstract

[Significance] Most current cost−benefit analyses of climate change suggest global climate policy should be relatively weak. However, relatively few studies account for the market or nonmarket impacts of passing environmental tipping points that cause abrupt and irreversible damages. We use a stochastic dynamic model of the climate and economy to quantify the effect of tipping points on climate change policy. We show that environmental tipping points can profoundly alter cost−benefit analysis, justifying a much more stringent climate policy, which takes the form ...

 

Computer support for environmental impact assessment: proceedings of the IFIP TC5/WG5.11 Working Conference on Computer Support for Environmental Impact Assessment, CSEIA 93, Como, Italy, 6-8 October, 1993

  
(1994)

Abstract

Any choice with a significant impact on the environment should, in principle, be the outcome of a political process reflecting the social preferences of everyone involved. Unfortunately, this ideal procedure requires a level of time and money that does not justify its application for planning each specific intervention. Different methods, mainly derived from traditional investment analyses, have been proposed for providing a rational basis for environmental decisions that cannot be analysed through a public debate. These methods have proved inadequate, however, ...

 

Physical and economic consequences of climate change in Europe

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 108, No. 7. (15 February 2011), pp. 2678-2683, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1011612108

Abstract

Quantitative estimates of the economic damages of climate change usually are based on aggregate relationships linking average temperature change to loss in gross domestic product (GDP). However, there is a clear need for further detail in the regional and sectoral dimensions of impact assessments to design and prioritize adaptation strategies. New developments in regional climate modeling and physical-impact modeling in Europe allow a better exploration of those dimensions. This article quantifies the potential consequences of climate change in Europe in four ...

 

In new report, IPCC gets more specific about warming risks

  
Science, Vol. 344, No. 6179. (4 April 2014), pp. 21-21, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.344.6179.21

Abstract

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC's) 31 March report on climate impacts and adaptation echoes many of the concerns raised by the last edition, issued in 2007. It says that climate change is already affecting human communities, agriculture, and natural ecosystems—and impacts are likely to grow in the future. But the report breaks with the past in drawing on an emerging body of social science to identify eight major risks posed by climate change, and to inform an extensive discussion ...

 

Update on the environmental and economic costs associated with alien-invasive species in the United States

  
Ecological Economics, Vol. 52, No. 3. (29 February 2005), pp. 273-288, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecolecon.2004.10.002

Abstract

Invading alien species in the United States cause major environmental damages and losses adding up to almost $120 billion per year. There are approximately 50,000 foreign species and the number is increasing. About 42% of the species on the Threatened or Endangered species lists are at risk primarily because of alien-invasive species. ...

 

The equity and legitimacy of markets for ecosystem services

  
Development and Change, Vol. 38, No. 4. (July 2007), pp. 587-613, https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1467-7660.2007.00425.x

Abstract

Markets for ecosystem services are being promoted across the developing world, amidst claims that the provision of economic incentives is vital to bring about resource conservation. This article argues that equity and legitimacy are also critical dimensions in the design and implementation of such markets, if social development goals beyond economic gains are to be achieved. The article examines this issue by focusing on two communities involved in a project for carbon sequestration services of forests in the state of Chiapas, ...

 

The consequence of tree pests and diseases for ecosystem services

  
Science, Vol. 342, No. 6160. (15 November 2013), 1235773, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1235773

Abstract

[Structured Abstract] [::Background] Trees are major components of many terrestrial ecosystems and are grown in managed plantations and orchards to provide a variety of economically important products, including timber, pulp, fiber, and food. They are subject to a wide range of pests and diseases, of which the most important causative agents are viruses, bacteria, fungi, oomycetes, and insect herbivores. Research on tree pests and diseases has had a historical focus on trees of direct economic importance. However, some epidemics and infestations have damaged ...

 

How risk management can prevent future wildfire disasters in the wildland-urban interface

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 111, No. 2. (14 January 2014), pp. 746-751, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1315088111

Abstract

[Significance] Recent wildfire events throughout the world have highlighted the consequences of residential development in the wildland-urban interface (WUI) including hundreds to thousands of homes burned during a single wildfire to, more tragically, firefighter and homeowner fatalities. Despite substantial investments in modifying wildland fuels near populated areas, losses appear to be increasing. In this article, we examine the conditions under which WUI wildfire disasters occur and introduce a wildfire risk assessment framework. By using this framework, we examine how prefire mitigation ...

Abstract

Climate Change 2007 – Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date scientific assessment of the impacts of climate change, the vulnerability of natural and human environments, and the potential for response through adaptation. The report: • evaluates evidence that recent observed changes in climate have already affected a variety of physical and biological systems and concludes that these effects can be attributed to global warming; • makes a detailed assessment of the impacts of future climate change and sea-level rise ...

 

Pricing Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services: The Never-Ending Story

  
BioScience, Vol. 50, No. 4. (2000), pp. 347-355, https://doi.org/10.1641/0006-3568(2000)050[0347:pbaest]2.3.co;2

Abstract

[Excerpt from the Conclusions] An impressive literature is available on environmental impact assessment and multiattribute analysis that documents the experience gained through 30 years of study and application. Nevertheless, these studies seem to be confined to the area of urban planning and are almost completely ignored by present-day economists as well as by many ecologists. Somewhere between the assignment of a zero value to biodiversity (the old-fashioned but still used practice, in which environmental impacts are viewed as externalities to be ...

 

Climate change, impacts and vulnerability in Europe 2012: an indicator-based report

  
EEA Report, Vol. 12 (2012)

Abstract

[Excerpt]Executive summary. Key messages • Climate change (increases in temperature, changes in precipitation and decreases in ice and snow) is occurring globally and in Europe; some of the observed changes have established records in recent years. • Observed climate change has already led to a wide range of impacts on environmental systems and society; further climate change impacts are projected for the future. • Climate change can increase existing vulnerabilities and deepen socio‐economic imbalances in Europe. • Damage ...

 

Quantifying the Influence of Climate on Human Conflict

  
Science, Vol. 341, No. 6151. (13 August 2013), 1235367, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1235367

Abstract

A rapidly growing body of research examines whether human conflict can be affected by climatic changes. Drawing from archaeology, criminology, economics, geography, history, political science, and psychology, we assemble and analyze the 60 most rigorous quantitative studies and document, for the first time, a striking convergence of results. We find strong causal evidence linking climatic events to human conflict across a range of spatial and temporal scales and across all major regions of the world. The magnitude of climate’s influence is ...

 

A global synthesis reveals biodiversity loss as a major driver of ecosystem change

  
Nature, Vol. 486, No. 7401. (7 June 2012), pp. 105-108, https://doi.org/10.1038/nature11118

Abstract

Evidence is mounting that extinctions are altering key processes important to the productivity and sustainability of Earth’s ecosystems. Further species loss will accelerate change in ecosystem processes, but it is unclear how these effects compare to the direct effects of other forms of environmental change that are both driving diversity loss and altering ecosystem function. Here we use a suite of meta-analyses of published data to show that the effects of species loss on productivity and decomposition—two processes important in all ...

 

The Economic Effects of Climate Change

  
Journal of Economic Perspectives, Vol. 23, No. 2. (April 2009), pp. 29-51, https://doi.org/10.1257/jep.23.2.29

Abstract

I review the literature on the economic impacts of climate change, an externality that is unprecedentedly large, complex, and uncertain. Only 14 estimates of the total damage cost of climate change have been published, a research effort that is in sharp contrast to the urgency of the public debate and the proposed expenditure on greenhouse gas emission reduction. These estimates show that climate change initially improves economic welfare. However, these benefits are sunk. Impacts would be predominantly negative later in the ...

 

Economic impacts of invasive species in forests

  
Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, Vol. 1162, No. 1. (2009), pp. 18-38, https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1749-6632.2009.04446.x

Abstract

Biological invasions by nonnative species are a by-product of economic activities, with the vast majority of nonnative species introduced by trade and transport of products and people. Although most introduced species are relatively innocuous, a few species ultimately cause irreversible economic and ecological impacts, such as the chestnut blight that functionally eradicated the American chestnut across eastern North America. Assessments of the economic costs and losses induced by nonnative forest pests are required for policy development and need to adequately account ...
