A new era for climate change science

New research from North­eastern cli­mate sci­en­tists sug­gests that the most recent gen­er­a­tion of models is no better at pre­dicting future out­comes than the older gen­er­a­tion. But they have a solution.

The politics of climate change

Northeastern’s Open Class­room series, which ana­lyzes a new public policy issue each semester, will take an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary look at the chal­lenges of solving cli­mate change this spring.

3Qs: Back to the dust bowl?

The western and southern United States is cur­rently expe­ri­encing the worst drought since 1988. We asked Auroop Gan­guly, a pro­fessor of civil and envi­ron­mental engi­neering, to explain the effects of cli­mate change on drought and its impact on the environment.

3Qs: Hot, hot heat

Auroop Gan­guly, an asso­ciate pro­fessor of civil and envi­ron­mental engi­neering, ana­lyzed the rela­tion­ship between global warming and last week’s heat wave.

Keeping it clean

Emily Rochon, ’13, cham­pions renew­able energy tech­nolo­gies and earned a global rep­u­ta­tion for her research before arriving at Northeastern’s School of Law.
