    I'm pretty sure I'm the most discouraged person on this site.
    Now I'm finding a whole slew of others starting to get serious
    about the dire straits we are in.  We will be "lucky" to hold the temp rise to 4°C.

      Hi

      Saw you. I recently came across a presentation that spells out the argument in all detail that we have blown our chance to avoid 4 deg C.

      (warning pdf - but please look).

      key messages:

      “… it is difficult to envisage anything other than a planned economic recession
      being compatible with stabilisation at or below 650ppmv CO2e.”
      Are we ... sufficiently concerned to
      … make or have enforced substantial personal
      sacrifices/changes to our lifestyles NOW?
      Thats what is has come down to, now. Planned economic recession, or 4 dec C and upwards.
