Scientists from Germany, Japan, Italy awarded physics Nobel on climate work

STOCKHOLM (AP) ‘ Three scientists won the Nobel Prize for physics on Tuesday for work that found order in seeming disorder, helping to explain and predict complex forces of nature, including expanding our understanding of climate change.

Syukuro Manabe, originally from Japan, and Klaus Hasselmann of Germany were cited for their work in ‘the physical modeling of Earth’s climate, quantifying variability and reliably predicting global warming.’

The second half of the prize was awarded to Giorgio Parisi of Italy for ‘the discovery of the interplay of disorder and fluctuations in physical systems from atomic to planetary scales.’
