Data for "The Paris warming targets: Emissions requirements and sea level consequences" to be published in Climatic Change.
Emissions scenarios that lead to the Paris targets of 2degC and 1.5degc are derived. It is shown that reducing emissions to zero may not be necessary. Substantial sea level rise in the future is unavoidable. Scientific flaws in the Paris Agreement are exposed, and remedies are suggested.
