The articles linked to the map give information about the impacts of these shifts for local environments and populations. The directors hope their project "turns climate change from an abstraction to a tangible force in people's lives."
Each write-up explains how the authors reached their conclusions and what information they used to do so. In addition, the website provides guests with the tools authors used in order for visitors to understand how climate change might impact them. Through transparency and a push for participation, the project helps promote accessibility to what often seems like a large and incomprehensible topic.
"Tipping Points Project" has already sponsored one successful and informative event at Georgetown, "The Arctic: Past, Present, and Future," with plans for more in the future.
