2 degrees celcius temperature rise will be pretty bad. And of course the climate crisis is progressing much much faster than the experts predict.

Paris climate goals require immediate oil demand downturn: Study
Even keeping global warming to 2˚C, not the safer 1.5˚C, will need emissions and oil use to peak by 2024 – much earlier than expected based on existing policies
Dangerously close to the red line
All of this means we haven’t yet failed to meet our Paris targets. But the July record shows us we are dangerously close to the line.
As the world keeps heating up, we’ll see more and more months like this July and move closer and closer to the threshold of 1.5℃
Recent research shows the best estimate to pass this threshold is in the early 2030s
