The problem is... as pointed out in one of the comments in Arragonis' link, population growth is slowing to a complete stalemate... and may possibly reach zero growth before the end of the century.

Many industrialized nations are either stable or in decline, already.

And there are assumptions made in the worst case scenarios (that posit high temperature changes) that most likely won't hold true. For one thing, we definitely won't be burning the same amount of coal by 2100 as we are now. We don't have enough of it.
