Exposure to tipping point at 34C will drive roughly 15 percent decline in wheat yields under a 2C warming scenario, rising to around 40 percent with 4C warming
While study also revises down the recent rate of rise, scientists say should be 'concerning' for anyone who lives 'around the coastal margin.'
The risk of extinction accelerates with every degree increase in global temperature, which has important implications for our understanding of what constitutes a ‘safe’ increase in global temperature.
Residential electricity usage will rise 83 percent (really) - a human-mediated climate feedback!
"Extreme heatwaves and heavy rain storms are already happening with increasing regularity worldwide because of manmade climate change, according to new research."

By the end of the 21st century, the average drought conditions in the Southwest US will exceed even the worst conditions during the megadroughts in the Medieval period
The fact the rate of increase in Earth’s average surface temperature has apparently eased off in recent years is not that surprising, and definitely doesn’t mean we can stop worrying about climate change.
