Article Octet Stream Tackling climate change requires a shift to a resource efficient, low carbon and green economy
Climate change is happening. The current global average temperature is already about 0.7-0.8 degree Celsius above the pre-industrial level. Even if greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations had stabilized in the year 2000, temperatures are predicted to increase by 1.2 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial level by the end of the 21st century.

Publication application/x-troff-ms 10 messages for 2010 — Mountain ecosystems
European mountain regions provide essential ecosystem services for lowlands and host a great diversity of habitats and species, many adapted to specific extreme climatic conditions. Mountain ecosystems are fragile and vulnerable, and face severe threats from land abandonment, intensifying agriculture, impacts of infrastructure development, unsustainable exploitation and climate change.

Figure Troff document Potential environmental and economic impact of climate change
(Environmental) Combined potential impacts of changes in summer and winter precipitation, heavy rainfall days, annual mean temperature, summer days, frost days, snow cover days and annual mean evaporation on soil erosion, soil organic carbon content, protected natural areas and forest fire sensitivity. (Economic) Combined potential impacts of changes in annual mean evaporation, summer days, snow cover days, frost days, changes in inundation heights of a 100 year river flood event and a sea level rise adjusted 100 year coastal storm surge event on agriculture, forestry, summer and winter tourism, energy supply and demand.
