Crimes (collection by The Intercept)
Faced with the irrefutable facts of global warming, sea-level
rise, and large-scale climate collapse, governments and corporations
remain determined to enrich themselves no matter the cost to
continued life on Earth.

We explore the risk that self-reinforcing feedbacks could push
the Earth System toward a planetary threshold
that, if crossed, could prevent stabilization of the climate
at intermediate temperature rises and cause continued warming
on a “Hothouse Earth” pathway even
as human emissions are reduced.
Crossing the threshold would lead to a much higher global average
temperature than any interglacial in the past 1.2 million years
and to sea levels significantly higher than at any time in the
We examine the evidence that such a threshold might exist and
where it might be. If the threshold is crossed, the resulting
trajectory would likely cause serious
disruptions to ecosystems, society, and economies.
Collective human action is required
to steer the Earth System away from a potential threshold and
stabilize it in a habitable interglacial-like state.
Such action entails stewardship of the entire Earth System—biosphere,
climate, and societies—and could include
decarbonization of the global economy, enhancement of biosphere
carbon sinks, behavioral changes, technological innovations,
new governance arrangements, and transformed social values.
Much more to come!
