The 13th Tipping Point: When Will We Face Up to Global Warming?In 2004, distinguished 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.As author Julia Whitty observes in her November/December 2006 Mother Jones cover story, odds are you've never heard of most of these tipping points, even though our entire genetic legacy may depend on their status.
