1) Ecosystems do not react linearly to change, but abruptly switch states (Scheffer, 2001).

2) That the global biosphere or global network of ecosystems, is threatening to shift states, if just 7% more ecosystems shift states (collapse at 50% and we are currently at 43%) (Barnosky, 2012).

3) Managers, planners, and politicians are not coordinating with scientists or experts (Staudinger: Technical Input to the 2013 National Climate Assessment, 2012).

4) Evolution is far less likely than extinction (Schwartz, 2006).
