Self-sustained melting of permafrost

An earth system model shows self-sustained melting of permafrost even if all man-made GHG emissions stop in 2020.

The risk of points-of-no-return, which, once surpassed lock the world into new dynamics, have been discussed for decades. Recently, there have been warnings that some of these tipping points are coming closer and are too dangerous to be disregarded. In this paper we report that in the ESCIMO climate model the world is already past a point-of-no-return for global warming.
