The abrupt climatic changes during winters and sudden droughts scorching farmland around the globe are discussed. Global warming is pushing the earth's climate faster towards sudden shifts and has become a matter of great concern. A gradual change in temperature or other physical conditions pushed the key driver of the climate towards a invisible threshold. The studies show that within several thousand years after the start of a typical warm period, the climate reverted to slow cooling followed by quick cooling over as short a time as a century.
