The interactive chart below shows scenarios for levels of global carbon dioxide emissions from 2010 to 2050 based on work by Professor Tim Jackson (in press), published in People and the Planet.
The scenarios are based on different population, income and carbon variables:
- Population: Follows the low, medium or high variants to United Nations models.
- Income: Converges to $20k per capita or $50k per capita or moves according to historical trend.
- Carbon: Declines to 20g/$2005PPP or 40g/$2005PPP or moves according to historical trend.
