Technical note Open Access
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.
