We’ve Already Reached the Tipping Point on Global Warming. I’ve Seen It.

When I left the Arctic after my last photographic expedition there in August 2011, I knew — I could feel it, I could see it — that the “tipping point” we’d all been talking about had been breached. I knew it was no longer about whether we could avoid it: humanity was already living within a new paradigm.

We were fewer than 500 miles from the North Pole. There was no snow. It was, most days, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. There was no ice, so polar bears roamed the land, so hungry that they just went from nest to nest eating the eggs of birds that had traveled thousands of miles to lay their eggs and raise their chicks. I watched as one bear, in a couple of hours, destroyed an entire generation of eggs. Glaucous gulls, kitty wakes, eider ducks, king eider ducks. It was a devastating scene.
