Yesterday I mentioned here how Stefan Rahmstorf spends more time organising PR campaigns than he does doing science (understandable I guess, as crystal ball gazing takes only a few minutes per day).
It took less than a day for him to confirm this observation.
EIKE posted here yesterday that ZDF television did a Frontal drive-by-shooting on the climate skeptics, particularly EIKE, and the Berlin Climate Conference, which took place last weekend. Of course, as is the case with all such attack reports of this kind, there’s always the same unhappy and increasingly nervous person behind it: Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute For Climate Impact Research.
I was wondering what German readers think of the following ZDF clip:
Keep in mind that while almost all serious scientists say the sea level will rise around 30 cm over the next 90 years, Rahmstorf is one of the few oddballs who’s way out in left field, with a couple of other kooks like Al Gore, claiming sea levels will rise 1.4 meters or more.
Unfortunately for him, Jason/Topex shows a clear deceleration of sea level rise over the last years.
I’m wondering what the German readers think of the Frontal report.
