I believe we’re on path SSP1-2.6  –  not good.
The world could be better than 1-1.9  –  how?

The light blue line could go down to minus 40 by year 2100
- if politicians and companies took serious action for CO2 removals.

- - - - -
The numbers (1.9 etc.) are not temperature, they’re radiative forcing.

Which path do you believe we're on?

Best estimate of global warming:
SSP1-1.9   1.4 °C
SSP1-2.6   1.8 °C
SSP2-4.5   2.7 °C

Range:
SSP1-1.9   (1.0 °C to 1.8 °C)
SSP1-2.6   (1.3 °C to 2.4 °C)
SSP2-4.5   (2.1 °C to 3.5 °C)

@JohanEmpa impossible to tell really.

these extra long term scenario narratives backing-in a lot of assumptions that could be invalidated both for better and worse with dramatic consequences:

in a positive surprise scenario global cooperation could intensify and mobilize the enormous collective resources towards monumental technology solutions and behavioral adaptions

in a negative surprise scenaro the exact opposite: degeneration into war and conflict and complete disregard for environment
