Reconstruction of data regarding the « Reasons for concern » about climate change from figures in IPCC and related publications

Philippe Marbaix

This technical document describes the production of the data about 'burning ember' diagrams from IPCC reports and related publications used to build figure 3 of Zommers et al. 2020 (Burning Embers: Towards more transparent and robust climate change risk assessments. Accepted for publication in Nature Reviews Earth & Environment). The starting point is the burning ember diagrams regarding the Reasons for concern about climate change provided in the IPCC TAR, Smith et al. (for AR4-related embers), AR5 and SR15. The result is a tabulated evaluation of global mean temperature increases corresponding to each risk level in those diagrams.
