Climate Change: A Risk Assessment

This report assesses the various risks associated with climate change. It takes a holistic approach to investigate the future pathway of global emissions, the direct risks arising from the climate’s response to those emissions, and the risks arising from the interaction of climate change with complex human systems. The assessment is divided into four parts covering 1) emissions trends and political and technological implications, 2) direct risks associated with climate change, 3) systemic risks, and 4) economical and ethical valuation of climate change.
