1. We've discussed on three case studies, where little causes have big effects. Also in readings, we discussed on tipping point of climate change.

2. I found the stories in the reading have some similarities among them. They had resources, which they couldn't identify efficiently, they needed a catalyst to activate them to work for changes.

3. In my point of view, the tipping point for climate changes is a highly varying issue. I think, people to tend to understand the tipping point when they are affected at individual level and also as a group. When we look at the stories we discussed, we can find the same. For example, consider the first story of Alpo Island. People where affected at individual level and also group as a whole. All the families where affected by the changes. Hence the tipping point.

4. When we look at tipping point of environmental changes, everyone can notice the changes, but not the effect. Consider a real life scenario. During summer, in India we have longer power cuts and which leads to shortage of drinking water supply. Hence we tend to efficiently use the resources in summer and also try to create efficient ways of conserving water. Whereas it is not the case in USA. They don't feel the need to think about those problems for now.

5. Also, I my observation from the infographics is that despite the changes in climate due to high production of carbon dioxide and also excessive consumption of natural resources, people still have access to resources. So they are blindfolded of cause-effects. To support my statement, consider the story of Alpo Island. People didn't foresee the real problem, however, they were aware that their actions would be responsible for it.
