5. Eh, no.

The forecasts for temp increases may be correct, but the conclusions seem pretty unlikely.

For example, there was a lot of life on earth 50 million years ago when the average temp was +14C vs. modern averages. Some of that life is still around in various forms today and has persisted through significant swings in temperature. Life is pretty resilient as a whole.
