Tipping points

Interconnection is key for understanding how our climate works.

The global climate patterns are a result of inter-weaved events that impact each other in a complex series of consequences.

Our summers and winters happen due to this ellaborate chain of winds, currents, mountains, plains, deserts, oceans that are the screws and bolts of a system that provides us with life as we know it.

Tipping points

In this delicate web of events there are certain pressure points, certain knots that support the system in a special way. If they go wrong, the whole system cracks down.

Tipping points is the how we label these crucial parts that can make the whole climate machine overheat, that can turn our global weather into unpredictable chaos.

Tipping points are the visible “ugly face” of Climate Change and will reinforce the impacts of climate change. Once activated they are irreversible.

How we can solve this?

To prevent tipping points global warming has to stay below 2o. Therefore we need a strong and binding new climate deal: a Real Deal!
