    now and 2050. Then it will go to 3 deg by 2100 or more
    depending on what we do based on last page of Summary.

    We went up 1 degree since 1880 and will go up another degree in 50 years under all scenarios and another two degrees by 2100 if we manage to keep our CO2 emissions constant something that will take enormous international efforts.

    Remember only Germany and Sweden succeeded in maintaining 2005 Kyoto agreed  CO2 cuts of 20%, maintaining 1990 levels.
    The same rate of warning in the next 50 as the last 100 years under all scenarios, even the low increase one.
    And possibly much worse after 2050.

    •  The range tops out at 6.4°C. But so much... (0+ / 0-)

      ...is iffy. Predicting what measures will be taken and how they could affect the climate over the next 87 years is not easy.

      Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
