I was surprised when I learned that what sounded like a small increase in the global temperature — just 1 or 2 degrees Celsius, which is 1.8 to 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit — could actually cause a lot of trouble.*1 But it’s true: In climate terms, a change of just a few degrees is a big deal. During the last ice age, the average temperature was just 6 degrees Celsius lower than it is today. During the age of the dinosaurs, when the average temperature was perhaps 4 degrees Celsius higher than today, there were crocodiles living above the Arctic Circle.
