Title: Point of no return / Fred Pearce.
Author(s): Pearce, Fred.
Date: 2005.
In: New Scientist. (2005.), Vol. 188(2531/2532) (2005)
Abstract: Part of summary of year's scientific milestones. Notes entry into climate science vocabulary of phrase "tipping point" and reviews indications that this might have been reached for Earth's climate. Includes: thawing of west Siberian permafrost (creating lakes and melting bogs, potentially releasing vast quantities of methane); 20% reduction in Arctic sea ice extent since 1978; and "faltering" thermohaline circulation (North Atlantic conveyor belt), as evidenced by 30% reduction in northward flow of water from Gulf Stream over last decade.
Notes:

New Scientist. Vol. 188(2531/2532) :16 (2005).
