Météo-France launched on its official website a new service that will simulate online the consequences of climate changes in France for the period 2050-2100.

The simulator uses two scenarios of greenhouse gas emissions based on a set of assumptions regarding population change and global economy:

  • Moderate Scenario (IPCC B2) decrease of the actual rate of greenhouse gas emissions evolution.
  • Intensive Scenario (IPCC A2) increase of the actual rate of greenhouse gas emissions evolution.

These simulations were developed by the Research Center of Météo-France in order to breed the climate of a certain region of the planet and rely on results made available to the scientific community to develop the 2007 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). These results represent different components of the climate system (atmosphere, oceans, ice, soil, vegetation, etc.) and their interactions by taking into account the evolution of the concentration of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere (carbon dioxide, methane).

From its side, the French Ministry of Ecology, Energy, Sustainable Development and Sea (Ministère de l'Ecologie, de l'Energie, du Développement Durable et de la Mer - MEEDDM) launched the website "http://www.copenhague.developpement-durable.gouv.fr/copenhague" in view of the forthcoming Conference of the United Nations on Climate Change, which is to be held on 7-18 December 2009 in Copenhagen.
