The implications of global mitigation to achieve different long-term temperature goals (LTTGs) can be investigated in integrated assessment models (IAMs), which provide a large number of outputs including technology deployment levels, economic costs, carbon prices, annual rates of decarbonisation, degree of global net negative emissions required, as […]

Executive summary

Very few studies have yet assessed the feasibility of adaptation to climate change on a global scale, and there are limited assessments of the feasibility of adaptation even at the local scale in a number of sectors for many regions. Where adaptation is physically […]

Reversing climate change by large scale deployment of carbon-dioxide removal through BECCS (D2b)

This report focuses on the timescales of climate reversibility under a range of Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) scenarios. The experiments performed here are based around a narrative that emissions are strongly mitigated over the 21st century with a view that climate forcing is stabilised […]

Overshoot scenarios and their climate response (A3)

This report reviews the current literature regarding “overshoot” scenarios where some aspect of the climate such as the temperature or GHG concentrations temporarily exceed a given target. The aim is to characterise such scenarios from Integrated Assessment Models (IAM) and where possible the climate to these scenarios, however […]
