Could 2023 be the hottest year on record? The outlook for climate tipping points and catastrophes

    Earth has this year experienced its hottest October, September, August and July on record. This past October was the hottest ever on record globally. And some experts warn that we are racing towards Earth’s catastrophic tipping points, with one prediction by 2028.
    Michael Wysession, PhD, professor of geophysics in the Department of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis, is closely monitoring the approach to Earth possibly reaching climate tipping points by 2028 and the catastrophes that he said can happen, unless measures are taken.
