31 July 2008
100 months on from 1 August 2008, atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases will begin to exceed a point whereby it is no longer likely we will be able to avert potentially irreversible climate change.
“We have 100 months to save our climate. When the clock stops ticking, we could be beyond our climate’s tipping point, the point of no return”
This short paper explains how we calculated this timeframe and provides scientific references.
