Scientists Demonstrate Climate Change along Millennium Silk Road in 1.5°C and 2°C Warmer Worlds[May 11, 2018]

Scientists from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics demonstrated both mean and extreme climate changes using the ensemble mean of CMIP5 models. The comparison of mean and extreme climate changes under 1.5°C and 2°C global warming scenarios highlights the impacts that can be avoided by half a degree less global warming.
