Dear Climate Informatics members,

Climate Change AI is excited to announce our next workshop on climate change and machine learning, which will be hosted at ICLR 2023. We will host the workshop in a hybrid format, both virtually and in-person in Kigali, Rwanda. There are several ways to participate:

  • Be a mentor or mentee in our mentorship program (applications due Jan 10)

  • Submit a tutorial proposal on your work at the intersection of climate change and machine learning (submissions due Jan 20)

  • Submit a paper or proposal on your work at the intersection of climate change and machine learning (submissions due Feb 5)

  • Attend the virtual workshop on May 4 or 5

We will also hold an interactive Q&A on our Community Platform where we will give advice on how to prepare a successful submission, and an opportunity to ask questions regarding the mentorship program. You can also refer to previous informational webinars on our workshop series via the Climate Change AI YouTube channel

Dear Colloquies from UN News and Google Climate News,


I wish to present the summary of my research in relation to the issues of climatic and planetary systems. My approach is based on integrated systems analysis (ISA).


Planetary systems of the universe and planet earth consist of the same component systems. The balance of these systems has been established over millennia. However, the balance of the planetary systems on earth have been changed by human activities. These systems have been used and changed without any consideration being given to possible results or on-going management.


As earth’s component systems have been badly damaged and now threaten total collapse, it is certain that human intervention is now urgently needed if sustainable life is to continue on the planet.


More detailed elaboration of the concept, including modelling of the results of human activities on planetary systems, has been presented in the following papers:


·     Soroczynski, T. (2022). Modelling of Human Activities on Planetary Systems for Sustainable Living. In: Leal Filho, W. (eds) Handbook of Human and Planetary Health. Climate Change Management. Springer, Cham.   https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-031-09879-6_1   

·     The initial concept of ISA was presented in 2002 by Soroczynski   https://scholarsarchive.byu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=3803&context=iemssconference  

These papers present a new methodology for dealing with climatic issues, planetary systems, and sustainable living. It is concluded that planetary systems need to be considered as large chemical and biological entities in which all processes must now be controlled by human intervention. 


I am, as you, frustrated by the current situation and demand immediate and appropriate action in relation to climate change. 


In conclusion, all planetary systems must now be monitored and maintained in sustainable conditions to permit sustainable living.


Further, the recent UN report on human induced improvements on the ozone layer https://news.un.org/en/story/2023/01/1132277   strongly confirms the conclusions of my research that planetary systems need to be monitored and maintained by human intervention for sustainable living.

Best regards.


Tad Soroczynski
