Table 2 Projected NO x emission totals under the three RCPs and the percentage of the present-day (2007–11) emission totals for UK-only emissions that each one relates to

From: Quantifying the impact of current and future concentrations of air pollutants on respiratory disease risk in England

RCP Total emissions % of present-day Number of reduced
