tipping point

tipping point: punto crítico, momento clave del cambio

the latter I think works for when this term is used in marketing (as in when so many people have ipods, suddenly everyone has them), and the former for the climate crisis, as in what may well happen in 96 months (see onehundredmonths.org)

according to wikipedia: The tipping point in the study of the Earth's changing climate is the point at which change due to human activity brings about sufficient new processes in nature to make any human reversal of the change impossible.

punto limite and punto de inflexion both seem to mean different things, mathematically.
