    What was the baseline temperature from which this excursion took place?  My cursery reading of the wiki reference mentions a gradual temperature increase in time and a spike that caused the catastrophic changes; We may have a 6C spike in progress, but not a higher baseline temprerature from which it could to the same amount of damage.
    I'm in no way condoning our current behavior, however.  We certainly don't have the time to haggle over gradations of the terrible consequences coming.
