Interannual variations in surface urban heat island intensity and associated drivers in China

For the period 2001–2015, the interannual variations in SUHI intensity (SUHII, derived from MODIS land surface temperature (LST) data (8-day composites of twice-daily observations), urban LST minus rural) and their relationships with climate variability and urbanization were analyzed in 31 cities in China.

Does climate matter? An empirical study of interregional migration in China

Using a robust empirical approach based on a correlated random effects model and a prefecture-level panel dataset, the study focuses on the role of local climate conditions in spurring interregional migration in China over the period 2000 to 2010.

Migration as adaptation strategy to cope with climate change: A study of farmers’ migration in rural India

In Bihar, India, an evaluation of the role of migration as an adaptation strategy to cope with climate change shows that a climate-induced livelihood risk is the major driver of farmer migration for both seasons: July to October and October to March.

Global estimates of mortality associated with long-term exposure to outdoor fine particulate matter

The estimates from this study are severalfold larger than previous calculations, suggesting that outdoor particulate air pollution is an even more important population health risk factor than previously thought.

Thinking about the future: the four billion question (Penser à l'avenir: la question des quatre milliards)

In this article, the author claims that with four billion extra inhabitants on our planet in the next century constitute a serious threat to survival, greater than most observers acknowledge. He argues that greater international cooperation is needed both to achieve the goal of curbing demographic growth and to manage the already scarce resources of our planet.
