Future climate change, societal evolution, and their interaction abound with uncertainties. Reflecting these uncertainties, it critical to carefully consider how we should model potential socio-economic development pathways, the effects of alternative carbon policies, as well as the inherent challenges associated with different climate targets. These elements when explored in combination yield a wide array of climate change futures. Even optimistic scenarios can contain unintended, disproportionate regional or intergenerational impacts. This presentation will share examples of how emerging visualization and data discovery methods can be helpful for better understanding how global change may pose severe challenges across regions or different economic sectors.
