I don't think so:
The advisers said it was unlikely that levels of greenhouse gases could be kept low enough to avoid a projected temperature rise of 2C (36F).
Somebody hasn't been thinking too hard about their conversions. Two degrees centigrade, as measured as an absolute temperate, close to the freezing point of water, is indeed thirty six degrees Fahrenheit.

However, two degrees as an incremental increase in current temperate is equal to fewer than four degrees Fahrenheit. Or should that be less than, in view of the continuous scale? Probably not, I've used it as if it's a discrete scale by only dealing in integers.

Anyway, point is, that's really badly wrong. Twits...
