Only if you believe in fairy tales"1C average temperature" is actually a lot. It means that places at the extremes will get intensely warmer temperatures, maybe 3 or 4C warmer on average, maybe much more during heat waves.
The global UN target was to keep planetary average to "2C rise over pre-industrial temperature average". The planet has already blown though 1C rise, on average and will blow through at least another 1C, probably 2C, this century.
