Gradual CO2 buildup can trigger sudden climate tipping points

GarryRogers Nature Conservation

GR:  Turning points, cascading failures, tipping points, and positive feedback loops are some of the terms used to describe our precarious thin-ice position. This story describes more evidence that devastating sudden events can occur. We are in danger folks, and the source is one that we have created ourselves. Greed is limiting the vision of our leaders. We must use every available means to show them what might happen.

A new study links rising CO2 concentrations with disruptions to key climate-controlling currents during ice age climate shifts.

Ice age ocean current disruptions linked with greenhouse gas changes

“Scientists say they’ve discovered another huge climate warning sign in the Arctic. Past increases in CO2 levels in the air drove ocean currents to a tipping point had a big impact on hemispheric weather patterns.

“Within the span of just a few decades, rising CO2 concentrations drove temperatures in Greenland up by…
