    Your argument specifies very well why, say, a 20% of the doomsday predictions being true would be enough to act (rather than the 90%+ chance that *really* exists of it being true) that would still be enough reason to act. However, would your argument hold if, hypothetically (and I can’t possibly emphasize the word “hypothetically” enough) the chances of it being true were, say, 0.0001%?

  2. A further nuance; if you think the science is uncertain, then you should be more, not less, concerned. 2 degrees is nowhere near as bad as 2 degrees +/- 2 degrees.
