Someone showed me this article today.
(I assume 4C is a change of 4°Celsius).
Also they told me ocean acidification plays a huge part.
The warmer the ocean gets, the less it acts as a CO2 sink.

I read this before but not at this magnitude. The chance that something will happen to reduce carbon in a meaningful way in the next few years on this planet is non existent. Countries are reluctant to take economic hits and reduction in quality of life, especially if it puts other countries in an advantage.

I see comments are closed there, I reposted it here:
