A group of academics led by Johan Rockström and Will Steffen, "Planetary Borders: Searching for a Safe Space for Humanity" scientific article named. Within the framework of the article, 9 critical thresholds in the climate crisis were mentioned.
These include climate change (carbon emissions and melting glaciers), deforestation and land-use change, loss of biodiversity, consumption and cycle of fresh water, nitrogen and phosphorus cycles (food production), ocean acidification, chemical pollution, atmospheric aerosols, and stratospheric ozone depletion.
According to the article, exceeding nine critical thresholds carries the risk of creating large-scale and irreversible environmental changes. In addition, exceeding one threshold can increase the possibility of other parts of the system exceeding their critical thresholds, in a domino effect.
As of 2022, we have exceeded four of the nine thresholds mentioned. These are climate change (melting glaciers and carbon emissions), deforestation, loss of biodiversity, and nitrogen and phosphorus cycles (food). Along with the fresh water cycle, these five thresholds that regulate stability and support our survival on earth are critical, and fortunately, we are not yet at a critical threshold for the fresh water cycle, but we are very close!
We have found the answer to the question of 'Where do we start in the fight against the climate crisis?' with this simplified scientific model. We set our 2030 and 2050 goals based on the positivist research of scientists. Our fight against the climate crisis within the framework of these 9 critical thresholds and in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals; We continue with the mission of developing sustainable, innovative and technological solutions.
