This paper attempts to associate different levels of global mean surface temperature increase and/or sea level rise with specific impacts and risks for species, ecosystems, agriculture, water and socio-economic damages compared to pre-industrial global mean temperature. It is found that that the risks arising from projected human induced climate change increase significantly and systematically with increasing temperature. Below a 1oC increase the level of risks are generally low but in some… CONTINUE READING
