A new project—More Than Scientists was launched March 15. It brings together climate scientists, advocacy organizations and the public in an innovative campaign that offers a unique glimpse into the real life stories, personal views and feelings of the experts on climate change.
From leading universities such as MIT, University of Washington and Harvard, climate experts share via video their hopes for the future and what they fear will happen if we don’t act now to reverse the impacts of climate change.
The more than 200 featured videos, created by dozens of climate scientists, are available as a resource to the climate community via their website and YouTube at www.morethanscientists.org.
In addition to sharing the resource, we want to invite climate scientists to participate in sharing their stories.

A contingent of Caribbean climate modellers and scientists recently participated in the VAMOS/CORDEX Workshop on Latin-America and Caribbean. The workshop was held at the Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP) in Lima, Peru ( September 11-13) and brought together an international community of regional climate modellers from South America and the Caribbean.
The workshop sought to:
(i) pursue an initial assessment of the various CORDEX downscaling initiatives over the South American and Central American CORDEX domains;
(ii) develop regionally focused vulnerability, impact and adaptation (VIA) user-knowledge; and
(iii) identify stakeholders’ needs so as to support the science-based information required for climate adaptation, mitigation and risk management in the region.
The Caribbean was represented by members of the regional modelling consortium, including presenters from the Instituto de Meteorlogia (Cuba), the three campuses of The University of the West Indies (Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago), the Antom de Kom University of Suriname, and the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service.
The Caribbean presentations notably highlighted the coordinated and collaborative manner in which modelling is being undertaken within the region and the resulting science. The application of regional climate modelling in determining future flood risk at the watershed scale in the Caribbean was also a highlight.
