|European flood risk could double by 2050 Losses from extreme floods in Europe could more than double by 2050, because of climate change and socioeconomic development. Understanding the risk posed by large-scale floods is of growing importance and will be key for managing climate adaptation |

|Climate engineering: Minor potential, major risk of side-effects? Researchers have studied with computer simulations the long-term global consequences of several 'climate engineering' methods. They show that all the proposed methods would either be unable to significantly reduce global warming if CO2 emissions remain high, or they could not be stopped without causing dangerous climate disruption |

|Film 'Knowledge for a Sustainable Arctic' online Marine biologist Martine van den Heuvel-Greve from IMARES Wageningen UR talks about her research on possible effects of new activities in the Arctic. By developing new knowledge, she hopes to contribute to the international dialogue on how and where new activities can take place. |

|Joint special issue from the Dutch national research programmes 'From climate research to climate compatible development: experiences and progress in the Netherlands' Researchers from KfC and CcSP conclude in this special issue that a trend can be observed in which a 'top-down' climate impact assessment approach is increasingly combined with a 'bottom-up' approach with practice and policy. Climate science is thereby increasingly contributing to a climate compatible development of the Dutch economy and natural environment. |

|Research reveals give and take of urban temperature mitigating technologies Greenhouse-gas induced warming and megapolitan expansion are both significant drivers of our warming planet. Researchers are now assessing adaptation technologies that could help us acclimate to these changing realities. A team of researchers has begun exploring the relative effectiveness of some of the most common adaptation technologies aimed at reducing warming from urban expansion. |

|Unique new dataset CLIMBER: Climatic niche characteristics of the butterflies in Europe Scientists have presented a unique dataset on the climatic niche characteristics of 397 European butterflies representing impressive 91 percent of the European species. The information provided in this dataset is of great relevance for basic and applied ecology and provides a combination of high quality standards and open access data ready to use for a broad range of applications. |

|World temperature records available via Google Earth Climate researchers have made the world's temperature records available via Google Earth. The new Google Earth format allows users to scroll around the world, zoom in on 6,000 weather stations, and view monthly, seasonal and annual temperature data more easily than ever before. |
