This has to be a short post as it’s 1 a.m. and I’m beat. The conference today ended at 9.30 and then I met up with some other German bloggers at the bar for a couple of drinks and good discussion.
The first day went very well with a slate of very interesting speakers. I feel it’s beginning to crumble, and I’m getting signals that some media outlets are beginning to shift gears. It only takes one domino to fall to get the rest of it going. The recent FOCUS feature was a sign.
None of the mainstream media outlets bothered to show up. But that’s okay becuase I scanned the headlines of all the big German newspapers while at the train station this morning, and they had nothing about Cancun! Summary: climate has lost its signficance – completely.
I’d say there were around 150 people attending today, with a good number of young faces, and so I was surprised by the turnout. Many of the talks today were about the cosmic radiation.cloud correlation. Scientists Henrik Borchert:
The German Weather Service has to start looking at their own data.”
One highlight was a live video feed of Lord Monckton and Roy Spencer from Cancun, who gave us a progress report there and we were able to ask questions directly.
I wanted to post a photo but I have to convert the photo and it’s too late. I’ll post more tomorrow.
