Climate Change Projections in the Twenty-First Century

Part of the IHDP/Future Earth-Integrated Risk Governance Project Series book series (IHDP-FEIRG)

Abstract

Climate change will inevitably continue in the next few decades. The Fifth Assessment Reports (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) proposed that global mean temperature, relative to preindustrial, is likely to increase by 1.5–4.0 °C by the end of the twenty-first century, accompanied with changes in rainfall patterns and an increase in climate variability (IPCC in Climate change 2013: the physical science basis. Cambridge, England, 2013).
