New research by a team of international universities examined interactions between ice sheets in West Antarctica, Greenland, the Atlantic Gulf current and the Amazon rainforest. The scientists conducted three-dimensional computer simulations and found that even when temperature increases fall below 2 degrees Celsius, the upper limit of the Paris Climate Agreement, a third of ecosystems will be destroyed by a domino effect.
The study showed that interactions between these climate systems can lower critical temperature thresholds at which tipping points are crossed.
The research, published in the journal Earth System Dynamics, created a new type of climate model. The researchers used an approach that focused specifically on how temperature thresholds for overflow points change as climate systems interact, allowing them to run their 3-D simulations.
The researchers cited the melting of the Greenland ice sheet as an example of the domino effect. Accordingly, melting glaciers release fresh water into the ocean, slowing the Gulf Stream. Therefore, less heat is carried from the tropics to the north pole, and the waters in the Southern Ocean stay warmer for longer.
Then, as the Antarctic ice sheets destabilize, Greenland causes more melting at the edges of the ice sheet, raising global sea levels.
Professor Ricarda Winkelmann of the Potsdam Climate Impact Research Institute (PIK) in Germany said: “This is not an estimate, we provide a risk analysis. Our findings still raise concerns. “We have little time to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent tipping processes.”
However, the scientists said that the level of carbon dioxide needed for atmospheric temperatures to cross the threshold could be reached in the very near future. According to this, very serious consequences will be seen in the world within decades. These include rising sea levels by meters in coastal cities caused by melting ice, and extreme climate events such as hurricanes, cyclones and floods.
The study’s authors emphasized that a tipping point is approaching, where savannas replace most of the Amazon’s carbon-storing forests. The ocean currents of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), of which the Gulf Stream is a major part and keep Western Europe temperate, have been at their weakest point for over a millennium.
In May, scientists reported that a significant portion of the Greenland ice sheet is on the verge of tipping. A 2019 analysis led by Professor Tim Lenton of the University of Exeter suggested that the world may have already passed a series of climate tipping points, leading to what researchers call an “existential threat to civilization.”
