It’s going to take a lot to make the sort of changes we need to disrupt climate change, everyone knows that, right? Well, maybe that’s not exactly true. Maybe a small push, at just the right time, might be good too. Researchers have proposed a new theory, that smaller changes enacted at critical points might help to turn back the clock on the changing world.
These changes called shifts and kicks are all about timing and work as a sort of domino effect. A shift is a something that changes the underlying structure that is contributing to climate change while a kick just changes the current system. Either one of the actions could have ripple effects on the environment.
By focusing on these smaller actions as well as large ones, researchers hope that we will be able to see more changes the positively impact climate. You can check out the full paper at the above link.
