Tyndall Centre


Description#

During the preparation of the Stern Review, the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research was charged with undertaking a study that projected the physical impacts of rising global temperatures.

The Tyndall Centre study described anticipated impacts of varying levels of temperature change (e.g. 1 degree Celsius, 2 degrees Celsius, etc.)

The document included as an attachment to this page, TyndallTable.pdf, summarizes the data included in the model used in the CoLab.
