The plus 4 degrees we are courting now?


How, exactly? Human beings can physically live in temperatures that are 4 degrees higher than average temperatures in almost everywhere on the globe. If we can't be certain what happens to the environment with higher temperatures, how do you know we won't simply adapt to higher temps?

In other words, how do you know 4 degree = the end of human civilization, while < 2 degrees would not?
