Climate tipping point interactions and cascades: a review
26 January 2024
This paper maps out the state-of-the-art literature on interactions between tipping elements relevant for current global warming pathways. The authors find indications that many of the interactions between tipping elements are destabilizing. This means that tipping cascades cannot be ruled out on centennial to millennial timescales at global warming levels between 1.5 and 2.0 °C or on shorter timescales if global warming surpasses 2.0 °C.
