When we talk about climate change and the threat that is heading toward us we usually talk about isolated events. The most common examples are the carbon dioxide emissions caused by our industry, our vehicles and our agriculture. The thing that’s not talked about so much is the positive and negative feedback that these events cause. A positive feedback response is when one event amplifies another, while a negative reduces it. The positive feedback loops speed up the warming of the planet, and the negative cools it down.
