Climate tipping might not always be disastrous

The expression “Tipping Point” suggests that Earth before-humans was some sort of heavenly bliss where everything was in balance and nature was in an equilibrium. Nothing could be further from the truth. We only learn about the big mass extinctions but the truth is that there were little, local and regional extinction events probably every single year. A chaotic system as Earth’s climate is driven by trillions of variables which means they cannot meaningfully be simulated. All we know is what we see, and not what we can imagine.
