  1. This is a comment to get things started. How dangerous will it be, to exceed the 2 degrees Celsius limit?

    Here is a practical exercise that anybody with a car can do, to check out how dangerous global warming will be.

    The temperature gradient, as you move from the poles to the equator, is about 1 degree Celsius for every 150 km travelled. So hop into your car, and drive 150 km towards the equator. When you get there, get out of your car and walk around. You are now at the 2 degrees limit. (the whole earth has already warmed by about 1 degree Celsius, and driving 150 km towards the equator raises the temperature by another 1 degree Celsius).

    If you are feeling brave, hop back into your car, and drive another 150 km towards the equator. Now you are at the 3 degrees limit.

    Keep repeating this exercise until you get bored, or you reach the equator.

    What do people think? Is this a realistic way of simulating global warming?
