This series examines the 12 tipping points that climate scientists have identified as having potentially dangerous impacts on the global eco-system if they’re reached this century. These include the dieback of the Amazon rainforest, the collapse of the Greenland icesheet, and the melt of the Permafrost in Siberia. Combining expedition adventure footage, extensive interviews with leading scientists in the field and state-of-the-art CGI, The Tipping Points takes us to some of the world’s farthest reaches to show us just how close we are to the edge.
