Okay, these are boffins, but still
The scientists have concluded, okay fine. But 780 thousand years since last reversal remains a long time, and a "preparation time" of 250 years means we could be at the start and have no way of knowing it.
Science is pretty good at determining what happened after the fact, but it sucks at forecasting anything outside orbital mechanics.
I'm glad that the scientific view is that a field reversal is not happening now, but I can't help thinking of volcano scientists who say that the mountain is fine, it won't blow tomorrow.
Yeah, well we'll see tomorrow, won't we ?
