FIGURE S.5 Climate changes and climate impacts as a function of global warming (not in priority order or implied importance). These anticipated effects are projected to occur in the 21st century following the transient warming for a given CO2 equivalent concentration, followed by further warming to the equilibrium value for stabilization at a given target concentration. As in previous figures, for discussion of transient and equilibrium warming see Chapter 3, where it is noted that the probability distribution of climate sensitivity is uncertain; larger or smaller warmings than the estimated likely value for a given carbon dioxide equivalent concentration cannot be ruled out. Ranges are shown for climate impacts over the globe or over large regions; specific regions, crops, river basins, etc. and their uncertainties are discussed in detail later in the report. {3.2, 3.3, 4.2, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7, 4.8, 4.9, 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.7, 5.8}
