Climate models are increasingly complex, interconnected ecosystems. They feed into one another, combining data, scientific laws as well as speculation. Is it possible to discern ‘fact’ from ‘fiction’ within the web of SSPs; RCPs, SRESs, CMIPs, IAMs, as prophecies within these graphs are fixed into policy?
Climate Model scenarios offer prophecies for the future - clear decisive lines that narrate the coming decades, reaching a climatic end in 2100. How will the expansion of climate model systems affect our future?
Four new pathways speculate upon this - situated at the end of the graph, twenty one hundred. The scenarios examine important questions facing climate models - determinism; feedback loops; predicting the unpredictable; and the paradox of prophecy. The scenarios are openly fictitious, subjective and active.
