Why are only 3 Climate Scenarios used when more exist?

Answer

Even if more scenarios indeed exist, they belong in either of the three categories: Orderly Transition, Disorderly Transition, and No Transition (sometimes called “Hot House World” scenarios). The scenarios that we picked are the most representative of the three categories and are sufficient to address all the main questions regarding climate risks. Adding more scenarios would therefore bring redundant or unnecessary information.
