Short summary
Many models project how human activity can lead to more or less climate change, but most of these models do not project all climate-relevant emissions, potentially biasing climate projections. This paper outlines a Python package called Silicone, which can add missing emissions in a flexible yet high-throughput manner. It does this infilling based on more complete literature projections. It facilitates a more complete understanding of the climate impact of alternative emission pathways.
