I wanted to bring your attention to a post that may be the best and most thought-provoking of any that I’ve read lately on any subject. The title of the post is The Nature of Tipping Points and it’s on the blog, The Automatic Earth. The title describes the post, which considers a variety of different kinds of tipping points, well. For example, there’s the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, a system of linear growth with a fixed carrying capacity. The post also considers forest fires, the European financial system, and global warming.
