Apparently I was a pessimist

Recent developments in climate models seem to rule out the most pessimistic, worst-case scenarios for global warming, the RCP8.5. It also looks like my previous belief that we would end up with 3.1°C temperature increase was too pessimistic, as now we are looking at somewhere between SSP2-4.5 and SSP4-6.0. Those pathways should bring us to a 2.5°C increase in 80 years, before we get the global warming under control.

Still a problem, but a slightly smaller problem than before.

As always, global warming is global so regional differences will exist.
