The Causes and Effects of 2100

Screen Shot 2020-02-03 at 4.38.41 AMSurface Temperature under the four (4) major models used by the UNEP and the IPCC to represent potential changes, all under human control. 

The RCP2.6 model represents the Paris Accord senario in which countries limit global temperature increases to 1.5C by 2030-2035.  Humanity has already missed that standard in many parts of the World who are now living in a 1.5C World and heading towards a 2.0C World (e.g., The Arctic).  The outlier is the RCP8.5 model in which humanity decides not to limit temperature increases, but conducts “Business-As-Usual” with devastating effects.
