Dr Erica Thompson was the lead climate scientist for the project, which draws on the latest scientific results from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to highlight the range of possible impacts resulting from different energy choices. Read DECC press release. 

Professor Leonard Smith submitted two impact case studies to REF2014: 'Improving weather forecasts to avoid disruption, damage and disaster' and ‘Ensuring the best science-based predictions of climate change’.  Watch the film of the weather case study.
