The Dalai Lama In Conversation with Greta Thunberg and Leading Scientists
About This Resource
“From the destruction of forests to the thawing of permafrost, the effects of human-induced climate change have set into motion self-perpetuating feedback loops that are accelerating global warming. What can be done to slow down this threat before it’s too late?”
This brief introduction from the Institute’s page for the livestream highlights a critical topic that the scientist-panelists shared with the audience: these feedback loops make the situation more grave than is commonly understood. Greta asks the question as to why these feedback loops are not incorporated into the climate prediction models that countries are using to develop their goals for reducing emissions.
