    We’re fighting not only our own emissions, but increasingly the positive feedback mechanisms of wildfires and thawing permafrost. Going past +2&degC seems very likely to me.

      When you look at the IPCC brief, it’s pretty clear 2 is beyond us as well. But, we’ll have more reports in a few years about how me might have missed 1.5, but we still have 5 years (or so) to make 2 a reality.

      But, the math is progressively worse each year – it’s not just the peak in emissions, it’s the fall in emissions after that. Each year, the math calls for the fall to be steeper and steeper – or, more and more unrealistic.

      And the peak?:

      Plus, all of this REQUIRES enormous levels of carbon capture later WITH massive decreases now. So, it’s more than likely we’ll pass 2 – it’s almost certain we will.
