While the “climate risk” conversation is now mainstream in both societal and business conversations, the “under-estimated climate risk” conversation is lagging significantly behind. There are substantial reasons to assume, however, that a lot of climate risk is going unrecognized for a series of self-interest and psychological reasons. For example:
- How to the “known unknowns and unknown unknowns” of climate change relate to under-estimated climate risks?
- How could mis-specifying “climate sensitivity” under-estimate climate risks?
- Does scientific reticence to engage in “climate alarmism” lead to under-estimating climate risks?
- Does the focus on “expected climate change” systemically under-estimate climate risks?

As a bonus, here are some recent additions to the Climate Web you might find thought-provoking that relate specifically to the topic of this Lite Roadmap. They represent just the smallest sliver of what’s organized in the Climate Web with the goal of facilitating access to your actionable knowledge. Note that links with “$$” sit behind paywalls and we can’t provide direct access. But we are always working to go through those sources to extract key idea and graphics to share under “fair use” rules.

NOTE: Accessing the Climate Web via Roadmap hyperlinks can be a bit disconcerting if you’re not familiar with TheBrain software’s basic functionality, which you can explore via the Basic Navigation link at right. If you do explore some of the links, please remember that Open Access to the Climate Web (via the cloud) is both much slower and less powerful than Premium Access to the Climate Web (which allows you to download the Climate Web to your computer AND take advantage of TheBrain’s superior desktop and mobile softwares).
The Premium Under-Estimating Climate Risks Roadmap digs much deeper into the topics already flagged at the top of this page, among others. Representing hundreds of hours of research and knowledge curation, the Premium Roadmap links together together explanatory materials, topical headings, individual reports, news stories, videos, and websites, curated topical dashboards for exploring key topics, and even individual ideas and graphics the Climatographers have extracted from a wide range of key sources.
Alternatively, if you’re interested in a webinar or brainstorming session, or a customized topical Dashboard or Roadmap on a related topic, contact us!
You can review the Lite versions of more than 20 Topical Roadmaps, and access their respective Premium Roadmaps, through this Climate Site. We welcome your feedback on other Roadmaps you’d like to see.
