This framework of scenarios makes it possible to examine climate action and its impact on energy consumption, land use, emissions and economic activity in relation to the baseline scenario without climate policy, mitigation pathways of different severity (comparison between lines) and mitigation pathways with the same rigour but different socio-economic assumptions (comparison via columns). Of course, not all combinations of SSP and RCP are feasible, e.B. SSP 3 with a radiative forcing of 1.9 and 2.6 W/m2 in THE AMIs was deemed impractical due to regional rivalry that hinders global coordination of deep mitigation efforts. There are also great uncertainties in carbon cycle feedbacks, where even relatively low emissions can potentially lead to higher propulsion than assumed in TIMs. The way cmip climate model experiments are designed limits the models` ability to account for carbon cycle feedbacks, as all models must use the same set of drives to facilitate comparisons between different models. This agreement assumed that greenhouse gas emissions would quickly peak and begin to decline almost immediately, but that did not happen. While emissions remained stable in 2015 and 2016, they increased in 2017, reaching a record high of 53.5 gigatonnes of CO2 equivalent, which includes emissions from fossil fuels, industry and land use changes such as deforestation. Another record followed in 2018. To classify the severity of different warming limits, the concept of representative concentration pathways (RCPs) was introduced into climate research.

Like SSPs, they are referred to in the literature as “pathways”, but actually represent projections of greenhouse gas emissions and concentrations and their combined radiative forcing. They originally included four projections ranging from PCR 2.6 to PCR 8.5 and were supplemented by PCR 1.9 after the adoption of the Paris Agreement to represent mitigation pathways consistent with the 1.5°C warming limit. The values refer to the radiative forcing in watts/m2 by the end of the century compared to the pre-epoch. Industrial B, e.g. 2.6 watts/m2 with 2.6 RCP. For comparison: a doubling of the atmospheric concentration of CO2 compared to pre-industrial times, that is, about 280 parts per million (ppm) of air molecules at 560 ppm, would be equivalent to a radiative forcing of 3.7 watts/m2. In 2016, CO2 concentrations reached 400 ppm and the radiative forcing of all anthropogenic influences on the climate system was reduced in 2011 to about. 2.3±1 watts/m2 estimated. Figure 4: . and here is the comparative graph showing the projected RCP6 emissions in 2100. There are two main sources for these opposing views on PCR 8.5: disagreements over the scenario`s assumptions about drivers of anthropogenic emissions and uncertainties about the feedback loops between carbon and warming.

The level of anthropogenic emissions depends on factors such as population growth and technological change, all of which are incorporated into FPP 8.5 as assumptions. In carbon feedback loops, natural systems respond to warming by releasing additional carbon or, in some cases, reducing the natural degradation of carbon from the atmosphere, leaving more carbon in the atmosphere. Examples of these feedback loops include thawing permafrost and intensifying methane release from tropical wetlands. The 2015 Paris Climate Agreement set a goal to limit global temperature rise to “well below 2°C” and to make efforts to limit the rise to 1.5°C. Each country party to the agreement has committed to Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in the form of GHG reductions which, if achieved, would largely put them on track with the FPCR 4.5 to achieve the first target (<2°C). The more aggressive target of 1.5°C would require an even stricter trajectory than RCP2.6. After the signing of the Paris Climate Agreement, the four original RCPs were expanded to include RCP1.9 to represent a trajectory compatible with a warming of 1.5°C. PCRs can be combined with SSPs to derive emission and concentration scenarios that take the socio-economic assumptions underlying SSPs, and then apply climate policies to achieve the radiative forcing values defined by the PCRs by the end of the century. . .
