Julia Whitty and Daniel Kammen talked about the current gap between public perceptions of and the scientific consensus over the dangers of global warming based on Ms. Whitty’s November/December 2006 Mother Jones cover story “The 13th Tipping Point: When Will We Face Up to Global Warming?” They also responded to questions from the audience.
In 2004, climate scientist John Schellnhuber identified 12 global-warming tipping points, any one of which, if triggered, will likely initiate sudden, catastrophic changes across the planet. Ms. Whitty calls a shift in human attitudes from denial to responsibility for global warming the 13th tipping point. close
