The world is on track for a “hellish” 3C of global heating, the UN has warned.

Apparently our current efforts to combat global warming have us on track for a 3 degree increase in global warming by the end of the century.

I feel like the news is always the same, only the number of degrees increases point by point, in a very unreassuring manner. Which is fair.

I’m just going to assume next year’s report lets us know that we’re en-route to 3.5 degrees, and finds an adjective somehow even more unnerving than “hellish” to some up our future lives. Even achieving net zero by 2050 would still result in a 2 degree increase, a scenario that was described in rather doomy terms just a few years ago.
