Advocate of the vulnerable: new research portrait online

THESys researcher Carl-Friedrich Schleussner makes island states heard when it comes to climate change. In a new research portrait, he explains what his work is about.
Carl-Friedrich Schleussner makes island states heard

Climate physicist Carl-Friedrich Schleussner leads the research group "Temporal Evolution of Barriers to Adaptation and their Relevance for Climate Related Loss and Damage”. He is scientist and policy advisor at the same time. In both roles, his work focuses on small island states that are particularly affected by the consequences of climate change. Among others, he is specialized in research on 1.5 degree.

Carl's research portrait explains why half a degree makes such a difference and what actually happens when climate change is faster than adaptation to it.
