IPCC 1.5°C Report: Economic Damages
from Climate Change

Global economic damages of climate change are projected to be smaller under warming of 1.5°C than 2°C in 2100 (Warren et al., 2018c).

The mean net present value of the costs of damages from warming in 2100 for 1.5°C and. 2°C (including costs associated with climate change-induced market and non-market impacts, impacts due to sea level rise, and impacts associated with large-scale discontinuities) are $54 and $69 trillion, respectively, relative to 1961–1990.

Values of the social cost of carbon vary when tipping points are included. The social cost of carbon in the default setting of the Dynamic Integrated Climate-Economy (DICE) model increases from $15 tCO2 to $116 when large-scale singularities or ‘tipping elements’ are incorporated . These calculations excluded the large health co-benefits that accrue when greenhouse gas emissions are reduced

The economic damages of climate change in the USA are projected to be large , the USA stands to lose -0.1 to 1.7% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at 1.5°C warming.

Increasing heat waves world-wide 
  • Immediate (2020) rapid decline in global emissions 
  • 50% drop in global emissions by 2030 
  • 86% drop in fossil fuels by 2050 ​
For a chance at the the 1.5C limit 
The report shows with certainty that
​1.5C is globally disastrous but
2C is total planetary catastrophe ​
