"The long-term view sends the chilling message of what the real risks and consequences are of the fossil fuel era," said Prof. Thomas Stocker at the University of Bern, Switzerland, and also part of the research team.
"Sea-level rise is already baked into the system," said Prof. Stocker, one of the world's leading climate scientists. However, the rise could be reduced and delayed if carbon is removed from the atmosphere in the future, he said. "If you are very optimistic and think we will be in the position by 2050 or 2070 to have a global-scale carbon removal scheme, which sounds very science fiction, you could pump down CO 2 levels. But there is no indication that this is technically possible. A further difficulty is the large amount of heat and CO 2 already stored in the oceans. Prof. Stocker stated, "The actions of the next 30 years are absolutely crucial for putting us on a path that avoids the [worst] outcomes and ensuring, at least in the next 200 years, the impacts are limited and give us time to adapt."

Thomas Stocker was born in Zrich and obtained a PhD in Natural Sciences of ETH Zrich in 1987.
He held research positions at University College London, McGill University (Montreal), Columbia University (New York) and University of Hawai'i (Honolulu). Since 1993 he is Professor of Climate and Environmental Physics at the University of Bern. His research encompasses the development of climate models of intermediate complexity, modelling past and future climate change, and the reconstruction of greenhouse gas concentrations based on ice cores from Greenland and Antarctica. Thomas Stocker has authored or co-authored 180 peer-reviewed papers in the area of climate dynamics and paleoclimate modeling and reconstruction. After more than 10 years of service in the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) he has been elected Co-Chair of Working Group I in 2008. Thomas Stocker was awarded a Dr. Honoris Causa of the University of Versailles (France) in 2006 and the Hans Oeschger Medal of the European Geosciences Union in 2009. In 2012, he was elected Fellow of the American Geophysical Union.

Report co-author, Thomas Stocker, a climate scientist at the University of Bern, put the long-term view of human emissions bluntly, saying that it sends a "chilling message" about the fossil fuel era's risks and consequences.
