Abstract

Experts and researchers agree that uncertainities still exists in any projection of future climate changes. It is suggested that a scientific research program will improve the understanding of the climate system and may even reduce uncertainities after years of observation and measurement. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has developed an analytical model that takes uncertain inputs affecting economic activities, greenhouse gases emissions (GHG) and the climate system's response and calculates the probability of specific outcomes. The program's multiyear effort has led to the development of making probabilistic projections of future climate change.
