Here you conciliate see the sea-equalize predictions of the two scenarios I previously mentioned - the metaphor on the left is depicting the leading scenario (sea-equalize agitate at the sequence we are on now), which is a 4° C acception in global manner temperatures. The metaphor on the just is depicting the remedy scenario (sea-equalize agitate delay most-violent carbon cuts), which is a 2° C acception in global manner temperatures.
