Stern Report: Chapter 3
OK, broadly consistent with IPCC and SRES (both of which are extensively quoted).
Do note though the timescales for sea level rises. As before, centuries to millenia.
Also note the SRES economic models: The world in 2100 is estimated to be 5 to 10 times richer than it was in 2000. There's an interesting case about inter-generational and intertemporal transfers to be made there: if it's the rich who should pay then it should be them, no?
Chapter 4 here.

"if it's the rich who should pay then it should be them, no?"
What in the last few half century of socialism has ever led you to that idea?
Hey the Bolshevics were horribly wrong and created one of the most oppressive regimes of recent times (which frankly anyone could have seen happening so I'm not sympathetic to their Frankenstein's monster pleas), but at least it was left wing principles of rob the rich and give to the poor they were working with.
Not like today's "left".
