The Good Tipping Points include renewables like solar PV and wind power, battery storage, electric cars, more public awareness on climate disruption, more government action on carbon pricing.

The Bad Tipping Points include most Earth System elements like Greenland and Antarctica glaciers, sea level rise acceleration, extreme weather events like heat waves leading to droughts, torrential rains leading to flooding, bad social cascades like climate extremes causing more immigration, leading to stresses on countries leading to far right wing governments.

The Ugly. Mostly the collapse of ocean currents like the AMOC. Would cascade to the frozen Arctic and Europe, baking equator, shifting ITCZ causing monsoon failures, lack of food, more heat into the Southern Hemisphere.


Our speaker today is Paul Beckwith, who has given many previous talks to CACOR on our rapidly accelerating climate system, and today is an update. Paul has degrees in Engineering Physics and Laser Optics. He has studied climate change for over 15 years. He has posted well over a thousand videos on his YouTube channel on all aspects of climate change and taught climatology, oceanography, and physical geography at U of Ottawa and Carleton U.
