Abstract on Climate Change

- measuring the increase in pollution levels regionally and globally (especially major cities such as London,l Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo etc) and noting correlations to reespiratory and other associated disorders (especially asthma), to note the meedical health costs of climate affecting agents
- statistical analysis between major storms (Acts of God) and rising total insurance payouts (eg Hurricane Sandy in New York, Katrina in New Orleans to name but a few)
- a list of all new weather records, including average temperature rise, average winter tempeerature, average summer temperature, extreme highs, lows and all other extreme weather data.  Are these records becoming more frequent, are the biggest numbers the most recent?  Are they evidence of a trend?  If so, costs are necessarily involved.
- by showing data on the average rise in ocean temperatures in various regions, and impact on associated coral and other marine life populations
- collation of the rising allocations in national budgets to combat climate change, along with average annual erosion of national GDP
- tracking seasonal weather patterns (including El Nino and La Nina) to changes in worldwide food commodity prices (based on demand factors)
- tracking changes in total (global) agricultural outputs (supply factor)
- measuring the efficacy of GE crops (ie cost/output/rural employment)
- how climate change has impacted everyone's lives around the world: one example, the year without winter in the late 18th century led to widespread crop (and pasture) failures, which killed off tens of thousands of the world's horses. This led to the invention of a new universal mode of transport, the dandyhorse in Germany, the precursor to the modern bicycle.  The climate event that precipitated this was a major volcanic eruption that caused a 'year without summer'.
- historical trends - how history shows a legacy of Empire collapse (including the collapse of the Akkadian, Roman and Mayan Empires) associated with resource scarcity (in turn associated with environmental degradation and major climatic disruptions)
- doing trend analysis and analytics based on media reports, websites, tweets and google searches etc which would be indicative of the increasing relevance ordinary citizens are finding this issue to be in their lives.
