A study from the European Horizon 2020 TiPES project confirms that the large uncertainties of climate models used in the IPCC reports might be reduced considerably by the use of statistical mechanics. The technique, which has been regarded with skepticism by some experts, leads to greatly improved climate predictions and might also help with assessing tipping points, the authors conclude in Scientific Reports.
