Personally I think the tipping point has already come and gone. The arctic might have ice free summers in 3 years (LINK)
, and once the permafrost starts to thaw and release all that methane (LINK)
then it's accelerated climate change, changes in ocean currents, collapse of food chains, etc...
30 years from now things might not be pretty at all. I kind of laugh when people say stuff like "this just means more months of the year that we can mine copper in Nunavut".
