Here's an interactive site that shows how much the temperature has changed since you were born, and how much you can expect for the rest of your life.

Climate change: how hot will it get in my lifetime? - interactive

Note that it's based on "climate model of Boucher and Reddy (2009), as used for calculation of warming potentials in IPCC (2013), driven by the IPCC "RCP8.5" high emissions scenario. They are consistent with, but not identical to, to the projections of the IPCC (2013)."

This "high emissions scenario" is conservative, because 1  the rate of emissions is recently increasing. IPCC models always lag real world data because the political vetting process is lengthy.

Between the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2013, carbon dioxide levels increased by 2.67 parts per million — a rise topped only by the spike in 1998. By comparison, global carbon levels averaged a yearly rise of just under 2 parts per million from 2000 to 2010, and increased by less than 1 part per million in the 1960s.

And 2 none of the IPCC models include slow feedbacks such as permafrost melting.

Here's a screen capture of the changes I can expect to experience.

It gets really scary when you plug in the birthdate of a 5-year old.
