A new video is available based on the National Research Council report Abrupt Impacts of Climate Change. The video features interviews with the researchers who wrote the report, as well as visualizations of climate model outputs and discussion of the potential for rapid climate-change associated changes in physical, ecological, and societal systems.
The report, which was released in 2013, calls for action to develop an abrupt change early warning system to help anticipate future abrupt changes and reduce their impacts.
