Leibniz Institute Director Bathmann: “There’s Still A Great Need For Research” On Baltic Sea Climate Change

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.

    “With political consequences, we must not wait until the very last detail is cleared up.”

    This is the cutting edge, where the incompetence of the climate consensus turns into active political fraud and tyrannous governmental control.

    Until every climate scientist honestly recognizes and admits that there is no greenhouse effect, of increased temperature with increased carbon dioxide, they are all incompetent, and no matter what side they are on in the debate, titles like “Leibniz Institute Director” will be absolutely meaningless as real scientific authority. There ARE NO climate science authorities, and climate science is an obscene, tasteless joke, so long as the “greenhouse effect” remains on the list of “settled science”.

    Apart from AGW, the science cannot be totally sure what is right. If you read a scientific paper, you always can see some keywords like: “may”, “could” or “might”. That means a probability of occurrence under specified conditions. Of course, something can be excluded, but it is valid under specified conditions.
