Brennpunkt Klima Schweiz

Mehr als 70 Schweizer Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler haben in den letzten drei Jahren zusammen mit ProClim – dem Forum für Klima und globalen Wandel der Akademie der Naturwissenschaften Schweiz (SCNAT) – und unterstützt durch das Beratende Organ für Fragen der Klimaänderung OcCC sowie das Bundesamt für Umwelt BAFU die für die Schweiz relevanten Ergebnisse des Fünften IPCC-Sachstandsberichtes (IPCC AR5) zusammengetragen. Die daraus gewonnenen Erkenntnisse wurden mit Resultaten aus wissenschaftlichen Studien mit direktem Schweiz-Bezug ergänzt.
