Michael Krüger of Readers Edition here brings us a nice little anecdote in a post called: New Snow Record in Potsdam -start of December records the highest snow level since 1893.Not only is this winter a huge source of embarrassment for the Met Office in the UK, but also for the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research in Germany.
The PIK is the work place of alarmists Prof Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber and Stefan Rahmstorf, who is a regular at Gavin Schmidt’s Real Climate.
The German DWD Weather Service station “Potsdam-Telegrafenberg” located at the PIK measured a snow depth of 18 cm on December 9th, 10th and 11th. Krüger writes (Dec. 16):
That is the highest snow depth ever recorded at this station in the first half of December (December 1-15) since measurements began in 1893. And that directly at the front door of the PIK, the center for climate research in Germany.”
According to Krüger, the Potsdam-Telegrafenberg is the only meteorological station worldwide that has a fully intact record for a time period of more than 100 years. Krüger:
That data-set is proven to be homogeneous. the historical observation conditions have since been preserved. Included are: unchanged siting (no station movement, no changes in the measurement field), unchanged surroundings, unchanged measurement methods, rules and equipment; time-point of data recording as to mean local time, recording of magnitudes that were not recorded anywhere else, continuous analog registration of the most important meteorological magnitudes.
Imagine that – the most snow in 117 years.
