Sweet, the upper limit was all I was worried about. I can go back to throwing tires on campfires!

Bad reporting.

Note that they are giving the results for a doubling of CO2, not the amount of warming we will experience.  Why do you think the scumbags will stop at doubling?

(And that's not even considering the methane hydrate layers.  They will provide positive feedback, we don't know how much and thus it's not even part of the estimates even though the worst-case estimates are very grim indeed.)

We seem to have a tool that we could apply right now if we chose.  Basalt rock dust.  Spread that stuff everywhere like you wanted to pave the Earth with it.  Ok, maybe not that much.  But Carbfix2 is based on the same principle.  The basalt takes in CO2 to form a very stable rock.

The only worry I have is going too far, by taking the CO2 level to below 270ppm and causing the extinctions of flora and fauna via Ice Age.
