Flaws in IPCC Report: Abrupt Cryospheric Tipping Elements in Climate System

Abrupt Cryospheric Tipping Elements in Climate System // Oct 18, 2018

Computer modelling simulations of climate change have a very difficult time accounting for abrupt, nonlinear state changes, also known as tipping points. Since IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) reports, including the sr15_ts (download PDF of sr15_ts here):

  • Rely too much on computer models,
  • They tend to understate the urgency and emergency state of ongoing abrupt climate change.

In this video I discuss the main broad-brush tipping points in the climate system, with a focus on the cryosphere (frozen regions).

Continuation of Thursday’s video on how computer modelling simulations of climate change have a very difficult time accounting for abrupt, nonlinear state changes, also known as tipping point, relying too much on computer models, understating urgency of climate change.
