Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But then he is only 1.6C above that worst case and he is a single concerned individual whereas the IPCC is a consensus report from a large group.  And he only refers to +8C for the temperate zones, with +4C for the tropics.  Is the IPCC +6c figure for an earth average?  If so, they could be saying the same thing.  Either way, I certainly hope we can hold the overall average to something like +4C.  That would be bad enough.
