(left) Potential climatic tipping elements affecting the Americas (Figure source: adapted from Lenton et al. 2008d64a3dbf-d45e-49de-98b9-b4ea32da888f ). (right) Wildfire and drought events from the NOAA Billion Dollar Weather Events list (1980–2016), and associated temperature and precipitation anomalies. Dot size scales with the magnitude of impact, as reflected by the cost of the event. These high-impact events occur preferentially under hot, dry conditions.
