    Evidence is mounting that “tipping points in the Earth system” because of climate change could be more likely than was thought, “potentially committing the world to long-term irreversible changes,” warns a fascinating new article in Nature.

    “In our view,” assert the article’s 7 authors, “the consideration of tipping points helps to define that we are in a climate emergency and strengthens this year’s chorus of calls for urgent climate action — from schoolchildren to scientists, cities and countries.”

    Warming “must be limited to 1.5 °C,” even if this requires higher costs to society,” they declare, because this “requires an emergency response.”

    In their latest effort to scare the world into taking drastic action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the authors propose a possibly devastating intersection of climate tipping points that could result in “abrupt and irreversible climate changes,” insisting that the very nature of this possibility is “too risky to bet against.”

    Yup. After 90% of the population has starved to death because there not enough CO2 to grow crops.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    These types of doom and gloom predictions don't have a very good track record so pardon my amusement at another one.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
    Psalm 55:22
