A New Normal?

Over at G-FEED, short for Global Food, Environment and Economics Dynamics,  a new site and blog by an interdisciplinary group of scholars, David Lobell has offered his first post in which he considers whether this summer's heat wave is "the new normal."

I've done rough back-of-the-envelope extrapolations from earlier work that suggest, with respect to temperatures, this summer will be the new normal (average or expected outcome) in about 10-15 years.  Rainfall is a different story, but check out G-FEED...


  1. The G-FEED blog has access restrictions set, so we can't view it.

  2. Sorry folks: I didn't realize the G-FEED site wasn't live yet. Emails are flying and the switch should be flipped on very soon.
