Methodology
ClimateFuture uses public data sources with projections on future conditions based on RCP greenhouse gas concentration scenarios modeled by the IPCC. "Best case" corresponds to RCP 2.6, "Middle case" to RCP 4.5, and "Worst case" to RCP 8.5. ClimateFuture is an open source project—view the source code on Github or learn more about it.
