Report on assessment of tipping point risks and societal opportunities

More than 200 scientists from around the world, contributed to the ‘Global Tipping Points Report’: a comprehensive report on Earth system tipping points and their potential impacts and opportunities for societal change. With global warming now on course to breach 1.5°C, at least five earth system tipping points are likely to be triggered.
