Extended Data Table 1 Change in cumulative global GDP (in US$ trillions) under 1.5 °C versus 2 °C global warming by the end of the century under different discounting schemes

From: Large potential reduction in economic damages under UN mitigation targets

  1. Values show estimated impacts at different quantiles of the estimated impact distribution for each discounting scheme (uniform schemes37, Weitzman31, Nordhaus32, Newell and Pizer35, Groom36 and Stern30), and correspond to estimates shown in Extended Data Fig. 3. Positive values indicate benefits (reduced losses) at 1.5 °C versus 2 °C.
