Contingencies, September/October 2017

September 1, 2017
In the September/October issue of Contingencies, the cover story, “An Imperfect Storm,” looks at what we know—and don’t know—about weather modeling and climate risk, and how the U.S. weather monitoring infrastructure can be improved. Other features include a look at so-called doomsday factors and how they are interrelated, and “Patterns and Noise,” which explores resource complexity as it relates to information theory, efficiency, and marginal improvements. Also in this issue, the final “Presidential Papers” article, on how to set the temperature to “ethical”; an “International Corner” piece on the health care systems and outcomes of Europe; how to ensure a client uses your work product appropriately; and more.
