Exploring Hydrocarbon Depletion

And now, just to be clear about what will be happening in the upcoming Paris Talks:
"If countries go no further than their current global climate pledges, the earth will warm a total of 3.5°C by 2100."
3.5 is likely an underestimate (as T pointed out), since it probably does not fully incorporate all carbon feedbacks.
So the real number is probably in the 4 to 5 degrees C range by the end of the century.
That means that the Paris Talks will essentially be planning the extinction of the human race, along with much of the rest of complex life.
