Self-Reinforcing Feedback Loops: #6


The video embedded above is the fourth in a numbered series of more than 30 short videos that collectively summarize the Self-Reinforcing Feedback Loops section of my long essay, “Climate-Change Summary” (previously, “Climate-Change Summary and Update”). They are preceded by a brief introduction. This video and the ones to follow will briefly describe between one and four self-reinforcing feedback loops, with an emphasis on peer-reviewed papers and national-level assessments.

Mugs, tote bags, iPhone cases, tee shirts, and other pragmatic goods affiliated with NBL are available on Redbubble. I do not earn money from these items. Indeed, they have returned far less money than it cost to create and distribute them. I list them at the bottom of posts in this space in support of my artistically inclined partner, who created them.
