Hardly sounds like settled science. Never has there been so much certainty amid so much unknown.
German online Bild daily has a short clip from the German Press Agency (dpa) on climate research and funding: Climate change at the Baltic Sea: Still a large need for research.
The new director of the Leibniz Institute for the Baltic Sea in Warnemünde (IOW), Ulrich Bathmann, wishes to massively ramp up research on the impacts of climate change in the Baltic Sea. Still there is so much that is not understood, Bathmann told the dpa. ‘With research on climate change, we need a lot of time to make measurements years and decades into the future.’
Strangely, with so much information still missing, the dpa still advises putting society on the dock and sentencing it to life without fossil fuels, adding to its blurb:
With political consequences, we must not wait until the very last detail is cleared up.”
Note how when it comes to funding: “so much is unknown”, yet when it comes to political action, only “some details are left to clear up”.
Sorry, but you can’t have it both ways. Either cut the funding or the climate-catastrophe crap.
