Is a few degrees warmer a problem? During the last ice age, which ended 12,000 years ago, the world's average temperature was only 4-5°C cooler than it is today. Those few degrees made a drastic difference: parts of Britain were under a mile of ice, and sea levels were about 100 metres lower than they are now. So just a few degrees can have very dramatic effects, and what's happening now is at a far greater rate than we've ever seen. More importantly, we know that it's largely caused by human activity.
