EAERE Magazine – Issue n. 4 published
The Issue n. 4 Winter 2019 of EAERE quarterly magazine edited by Astrid Dannenberg has been published. This issue is mainly focused on the outcomes of the COP24 in Katowice, and more in general on the international agreements and their impacts on ecology, economy and technology. It features articles by Robert N. Stavins, Alessandro Tavoni, Bård Harstad, Elena Ojea and Eugenie Dugoua. Starting with an assessment of the outcomes of the COP24, we then listen to what climate negotiators themselves think of the past climate conferences. The effectiveness of current international treaties is then assessed, followed by an insight on the effects of climate change on shifting fish stocks in the oceans. We conclude with an inspiring reflection on the technological progress in replacing ozone-depleting substances.
