Global Temperature Increase From Co2 Emissions
We developed different scenarios for the world and now try to translate the co2 emissions into a temperature increase by 2100. Our main drivers in the model are electricity generation from coal, gas, oil, and ice vehicles.
We already translated these into co2 emissions but now need help to translate those yearly co2 emissions into a temperature increase by the year 2100.
We are looking for an expert in climate change helping us with the approach for our caluculation and verifying some of our assumptions. +18 Other Responses
