It is possible, of course, that eventually we will trigger some tipping point after which global warming takes off regardless of our carbon emissions. Indeed, it is possible that we already have done so. But the recent paper getting so much attention isn’t convincing. Read also Gizmodo’s takedown.

In technical fields, dilettantes generally have a rough time. Business professors should be cautious about their climate models. And if this year has taught anything, it is that economists make lousy epidemiologists. In fairness, it seems the authors of that paper take it more as an interesting exercise, and it is the media amplification at fault.
