WHEN THIS LOOP CLOSES SOME WILL SUFFER BADLY
The concept of 'CLOSING A FEEDBACK LOOP' means that a loop is closed to affect the person or agents that originally are responsible for an action so that they plainly feel its effects. This almost inevitable leads to corrective action. One of the reasons why climate change does not arouse passion and action is that it is largely invisible and most people are not aware of it, although extreme weather events are beginning to change this somewhat. The schematic representation shows how systems thinking might help to draw attention to such situations by graphically connecting the dots to promote understand and hopefully action when people realize that there is a price to be paid for inaction. Please note, however, that the loop does not describe dynamic behaviour in the normal system dynamics sense.
