The IPCC accepted the invitation in April 2016 deciding to prepare this Special Report on the impacts of global warming of. 1 5 C above pre industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways in the context of strengthening the global. response to the threat of climate change sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty. This Summary for Policymakers SPM presents the key findings of the Special Report based on the assessment of the available. scientific technical and socio economic literature2 relevant to global warming of 1 5 C and for the comparison between global. warming of 1 5 C and 2 C above pre industrial levels The level of confidence associated with each key finding is reported using. the IPCC calibrated language 3 The underlying scientific basis of each key finding is indicated by references provided to chapter. elements In the SPM knowledge gaps are identified associated with the underlying chapters of the Report. A Understanding Global Warming of 1 5 C 4, A 1 Human activities are estimated to have caused approximately 1 0 C of global warming5 above. pre industrial levels with a likely range of 0 8 C to 1 2 C Global warming is likely to reach 1 5 C. between 2030 and 2052 if it continues to increase at the current rate high confidence Figure. A 1 1 Reflecting the long term warming trend since pre industrial times observed global mean surface temperature GMST for. the decade 2006 2015 was 0 87 C likely between 0 75 C and 0 99 C 6 higher than the average over the 1850 1900. period very high confidence Estimated anthropogenic global warming matches the level of observed warming to within. 20 likely range Estimated anthropogenic global warming is currently increasing at 0 2 C likely between 0 1 C and. 0 3 C per decade due to past and ongoing emissions high confidence 1 2 1 Table 1 1 1 2 4. A 1 2 Warming greater than the global annual average is being experienced in many land regions and seasons including two to. three times higher in the Arctic Warming is generally higher over land than over the ocean high confidence 1 2 1 1 2 2. Figure 1 1 Figure 1 3 3 3 1 3 3 2, A 1 3 Trends in intensity and frequency of some climate and weather extremes have been detected over time spans during which. about 0 5 C of global warming occurred medium confidence This assessment is based on several lines of evidence. including attribution studies for changes in extremes since 1950 3 3 1 3 3 2 3 3 3. 1 Decision 1 CP 21 paragraph 21, 2 The assessment covers literature accepted for publication by 15 May 2018.
3 Each finding is grounded in an evaluation of underlying evidence and agreement A level of confidence is expressed using five qualifiers very low low medium high and very high and. typeset in italics for example medium confidence The following terms have been used to indicate the assessed likelihood of an outcome or a result virtually certain 99 100. probability very likely 90 100 likely 66 100 about as likely as not 33 66 unlikely 0 33 very unlikely 0 10 exceptionally unlikely 0 1 Additional terms extremely likely. 95 100 more likely than not 50 100 more unlikely than likely 0 50 extremely unlikely 0 5 may also be used when appropriate Assessed likelihood is typeset in italics. for example very likely This is consistent with AR5. 4 See also Box SPM 1 Core Concepts Central to this Special Report. 5 Present level of global warming is defined as the average of a 30 year period centred on 2017 assuming the recent rate of warming continues. 6 This range spans the four available peer reviewed estimates of the observed GMST change and also accounts for additional uncertainty due to possible short term natural variability. 1 2 1 Table 1 1,Summary for Policymakers, A 2 Warming from anthropogenic emissions from the pre industrial period to the present will persist for. centuries to millennia and will continue to cause further long term changes in the climate system. such as sea level rise with associated impacts high confidence but these emissions alone are. unlikely to cause global warming of 1 5 C medium confidence Figure SPM 1 1 2 3 3 Figure 1 5. A 2 1 Anthropogenic emissions including greenhouse gases aerosols and their precursors up to the present are unlikely to. cause further warming of more than 0 5 C over the next two to three decades high confidence or on a century time scale.
