DrBob, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think your list is estimated climate sensitivity to a doubling of CO2, usually from preindustrial levels?

True. (FWIW, I consider the warming so far from the Little Ice Age as positive. I would not want to go back to pre-industrial CO2 levels if it meant going back to that climate.)

BJ, on the other hand, I think, is talking about estimated total warming warming, for which a goal of 2C or less has been set, but is looking unlikely given recent emission trends.

Looking back, it's not clear [and there are many posts to read in catching up]. Of course, looking more than a century into the future is, shall we say, iffy.
