Stern Review On The Economics Of Climate Change

  1. 1. Projected Impacts of Climate Change Global temperature change (relative to pre-industrial) 0°C 1°C 2°C 3°C 4°C 5°C Food Falling crop yields in many areas, particularly developing regions Possible rising yields in Falling yields in many some high latitude regions developed regions Water Significant decreases in water Small mountain glaciers Sea level rise availability in many areas, including disappear – water Mediterranean and Southern Africa threatens major cities supplies threatened in several areas Ecosystems Extensive Damage Rising number of species face extinction to Coral Reefs Extreme Weather Rising intensity of storms, forest fires, droughts, flooding and heat waves Events Risk of Abrupt and Increasing risk of dangerous feedbacks and Major Irreversible abrupt, large-scale shifts in the climate system Changes
