    Is probably where civilization starts to break down, according to the guesstimates I've read.  But they're only guesstimates.

    I think 2 deg C is a practical limit, however.  After that so many resources will be required to stave off the immediate effects that it's all downhill from there.  And probably the only way to stay below 2 is a 50% cut in global emissions done 4 years ago.
