Why they would warn about climate change when their policies are driving it? A simple explanation would be that they are covering their asses so that they don't end up being prosecuted later on for their inaction today. By releasing this report they can now point to it and say they did their part and then go on advocating exponential economic growth, which they can't achieve.

There is a lot of uncertainty in modelling the non-linearity aspects of climate change. I would trust their economic modelling more than the climate modelling of such non-linearities, either of which I would trust as much as a con-man.

Whether the non-linearities mean a quick decadal shift in climate, or something that takes centuries, the idea that we will be able to contain a 2C or 4C or whatever degree rise in temperature is highly questionable.
