Climate feedback loops are cyclical chain reactions that happen when one change triggers further changes, in a process that keeps on repeating itself. Some of these feedback loops drive down warming, but others amplify it.

Take Arctic ice, for example. Warming temperatures cause sea ice to melt, revealing the dark ocean water beneath. As dark surfaces absorb more heat than reflective surfaces like ice, the ocean warms and more ice melts.

This article says scientists have found 27 feedback loops driving up global temperature, while seven are helping to slow the pace of global warming.

It’s too late to fully prevent the pain of climate change; but if we take meaningful steps now, we can reduce the severity of the pain.
