We talk about a 2 degree Celsius rise, but what does that look like in terms of climates we know? Here’s a table I put together to help me think about it. The places are chosen to give a roughly equal gap of just over 2 degrees, with a primarily Atlantic climate to give comparability.
|City||Latitude||Average max||Average min||Daily average||Difference from previous|
|Coimbra (mid Portugal)||40°13||21.2||9.8||15.5||1.7|
|Agadir (SW Morocco)||30°26||23.4||13.4||18.4||2.9|
Obviously this is pretty crude, but it gives a feel for the kinds of shifts we can expect, especially in ecosystems.
