Climate change accelerating - hardly
There has been a lot of publicity about a recent alarmist WWF report:
WWF's report, Climate Change: Faster, stronger, sooner, has updated all the scientific data and concluded that global warming is accelerating far beyond the IPCC's forecasts.
As an example it says the first tipping point may have already been reached in the Arctic where sea ice is disappearing up to 30 years ahead of IPCC predictions and may be gone completely within five years - something that hasn't occurred for 1m years. This could result in rapid and abrupt climate change rather than the gradual changes forecast by the IPCC.
Climate Change Skeptic takes a cool look at these scaremongering claims, and finds that they are pure fiction:
Whatever the case, there are a lot of good reasons to believe we are not seeing an "acceleration" in global warming. And a lot of very, very good reasons to believe we are not reaching a "tipping point." Tipping point implies that we have entered a regime where the climate is dominated by runaway positive feedback.
