Posted on May 19, 2022 by Brian McGeeCan YOU reach net zero by 2050? (A Simulation) Will it be easy? Can it be done? Here is a game created by the Financial Times with real research based data. Note: How it was Create This game was created by the Financial Times. It is based on real science and reporting — however, it is a game, not a perfect simulation of the future. The emissions modelling was developed in 2022 by the International Energy Agency (IEA). The scenarios used in the IEA’s “Net Zero by 2050” report were recalculated to track the temperature outcomes for specific pathways used in the game. These climate outcomes were calculated using the IEA’s World Energy Model (WEM) and Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP) model coupled with the MAGICC v7+ climate model. MAGICC stands for Model for the Assessment of Greenhouse Gas Induced Climate Change and is used by scientists and integrated assessment models.
