Abstract

This FEEM working paper by researcher Valentina Bosetti et al. presents the results of the first comprehensive study on the key uncertainty drivers for climate change when looking at 2100 temperatures and 2100 emissions.
“The study shows that uncertainty surrounding parameters may be more important than uncertainty in model structure. The resulting distributions also provide insights on tail events, i.e. low probability and extreme consequences scenarios."
