The global average temperature could rise by 4C (7.2F) as early as 2060, according to a new study by the UK Met Office.
Four degrees would have pretty disastrous effects. And the projection has the Arctic raising 15 °C. This large a change would have significant effects on rainfall patterns and snow pack. Fresh water for a large part of the world population would be greatly impacted.
Not a nice conclusion.
