Activity 11: Tipping points when the climate tilts

Rudolf Pausenberger and Moritz Strähle
Status: Mar 2023

If a tipping point is exceeded, a previously straightforward and predictable development can be amplified and accelerated by feedback to such an extent that the process can no longer be slowed down or reversed. To make this phenomenon tangible, one can work with examples (Activity 12) or with the mechanical tipping point model used here.
