The effect of modeling strategies on assessments of differential warming impacts of 0.5°C

Abstract The differential climatic impact between the 1.5 versus 2°C warmer worlds is a global concern on the post‐Paris science agenda. The recently released Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) special report “Global Warming of 1.5ºC” (hereafter SR15) concludes robustly avoided impacts from climate extremes from the 0.5°C less warming globally, based on multiple lines […]
