A new study examines potential climate feedbacks that could push Earth into a ‘hothouse’ state. A new paper, just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has received a lot of media attention.

In particular, the authors of this study tried to determine the trajectory that the Earth is on so we can predict what the future climate will be.
