This article explores the links between climate neutrality and sustainability in the context of international trade. For that, it tackles seven main concerns: 1) what do industry leaders now need from policymakers to make them the frontrunners in the global transition to climate neutrality? 2) what coalitions are necessary to build and who are the...

The predictability and variability of extratropical climate are largely associated with tropical forcing through various teleconnections. The East Asia-Pacific/Pacific-Japan (EAP/PJ) teleconnection is one the most important factors affecting the summer climate in East Asia. In this work, we confirm the weakening relationship between the El Niño-Sou...

Cooling and airconditioning systems are the primary consumers of building energy in hot and mixed climate locations. The reliance on traditional systems, driven electrically, is the main reason behind the deterioration and ever-increasing demand for energy in buildings. This is also associated with a vast amount of CO 2 emissions and other environm...

Analytic frames shape the causality we identify in climate-related crises. Here we contrast examples from two primary categories of analytic frames, which we label ‘Environmental-Drivers’ and ‘Social-Causal’ to draw attention to the implications of each frame with regards to causality. We explore each frame via cases of ‘climate-related’ migration....
