Arctic Tipping Point Tipped

BBC News - Arctic 'tipping point' may not be reached

Scientists say current concerns over a tipping point in the disappearance of Arctic sea ice may be misplaced.

Danish researchers analysed ancient pieces of driftwood in north Greenland which they say is an accurate way to measure the extent of ancient ice loss.

Writing in the journal Science, the team found evidence that ice levels were about 50% lower 5,000 years ago.

They say changes to wind systems can slow down the rate of melting.

They argue, therefore, that a tipping point under current scenarios is unlikely.

As Admiral Tovey is recorded as saying to a Met Officer giving a "fair weather forecast" in the middle of a gale hindering the pursuit of the Bismarck - "The trouble with you fellows is that you refuse to look out of the window!"

Amazing what scientists find when they do actual observation and scientific analysis instead of playing with deeply flawed statistical models!

Is there any claim by the global warmists that has actually been proved to be true?
