This rise in temperature is the ominous conclusion reached by two different studies using entirely different methods published in the journal Nature Climate Change today.

‘The likely range of global temperature increase is 2.0-4.9 [degrees Celsius] and our median forecast is 3.2 C,’ said Adrian Raftery, author of the first study. ‘Our model is based on data which already show the effect of existing emission mitigation policies. Achieving the goal of less than 1.5 C warming will require carbon intensity to decline much faster than in the recent past.’
