Ugo Bardi from The Oil Drum has published a very interesting post today, which worths a look.

According to an article published by Willem Nel and Christopher Cooper, CO2 concentration levels do not exceed 550ppm. And temperature increase will not be more than 1C before 2100.
But there are other people who found them very "optimistic" and these articles will be published soon.
