The study
a decrease in the emission of the four targeted gases and particles by 30 percent to 60 percent over the next several decades. It showed a resulting projected reduction in sea level rise of 22 percent to 42 percent by 2100, depending on the actual level of emissions reduction that might be achieved.
Just a small tidbit of more scientific science fiction.They really don't know.
