I've read that the world has warmed by 1°C over pre-industrial levels, and there is near-zero chance of stopping warming at 2°C. 4°C warming is apparently likely in the 2050-2100 period ... Apparently NASA's James Hansen and other scientist warn of a "tipping point" that could lead to runaway global warming “out of humanity’s control.” I'd love to hear more about this "tipping point". (the added pictures are post "Sandy", by the way).
