It’s probably number 2 on the list behind Marc Morano/CFACT. […]

Stefan Rahmstorf’s Sea Level Amnesia – Using His Own Numbers, Sea Level Rise Actually Slowed Down 3%!

Ulli Kulke, veteran journalist at the German flagship daily DIE WELT, posts a comment at his blog on über-alarmist Stefan Rahmstorf’s claim that “sea levels are rising 60% faster” than previously thought in 2007. Sea levels have decelerated over the last years. Chart source: http://sealevel.colorado.edu/. Being a devout alarmist, Rahmstorf is obsessed with finding ways […]

International Reaction To Die Zeit’s ‘Climate Godfather Morano’ Piece: “Shoddy, Malicious, Embarrassing Journalism”

International Reaction To Die Zeit’s ‘Climate Godfather Morano’ Piece: “Shoddy, Malicious, Embarrassing Journalism”

Last week German fundamentalist-green (now-confirmed) Die Zeit came out with a comprehensive 3-page broadsheet portrayal of the climate skeptic movement, which, not surprisingly, was unflattering. It’s a perception that the German greens are trying to infuse in it’s readers – the truth as they want to see it, but sadly for them it’s totally remote from reality. Image […]

Split! Chancellor Merkel Stops Listening To Her Chief Climate Advisor – Schellnhuber Publicly Unloads!

When the Chancellor’s chief advisor goes out to the public and tells everybody that the Chancellor is failing, then it can mean only one thing: the Chancellor has stopped listening. Now the advisor (Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber) is teed off and has stooped to back-biting. Schellnhuber says only a radical transformation can curb the climate catastrophe.

Die Zeit Represents Germany’s Hostile Intolerance, Calling Climate Science Skepticism “Fringe Opinions” From “Deniers”

On Friday I wrote about how the print edition of Die Zeit had published a twisted drive-by slander piece on climate skeptics, targeting Marc Morano of Climate Depot, the Heartland Institute, EIKE and Fritz Vahrenholt (photo left). Unsurprisingly the report’s authors, Kerstin Kohlenberg and Anita Blasberg, have no formal science training; they are sociology majors. That explains […]

Another Dissident In Germany Speaks Up In An Open Letter – Even Warmist Science Shows There’s Been No Warming

The European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) presents an open letter authored by a CDU (Conservative Party) councilman to Hanover treasurer Dr. Marc Hansmann. Dissent is growing and skepticism is taking root in Germany, as one prominent figure after another begin to speak out. This all goes back to Prof. Fred Singer’s visit to Germany 2010, which […]

Russian Arctic Scientist: Permafrost Changes Due To Natural Factors…”It’s Going To Be Colder”!

Sebastian Lüning’s and Fritz Vahrenholt’s Die kalte Sonne presents an interesting view on permafrost from Russia. I’ve added some extra quotes from the video for non-German readers. After widespread sea ice melt in the Arctic in the 1930s and 40s, the ice re-established itself. In the 1970s the temperature dropped and sea ice increased. In […]

Changing The Climate Change Act…UK Government Says Green Energy Commitments Were “Made Very Foolishly”

Good to see that the British government is finally realising that renewable energy is “foolish” and that a fundamental change in course is necessary. This is revealed by an undercover video rolled by Greenpeace, who of course are shocked that Britain would want to end its folly. At the 4:19 mark Greenpeace has Peter Lilley saying: […]

Germany’s Massive Renewable Energy System Puts Out Only 7% Of It’s Rated Capacity in November!

Germany’s Massive Renewable Energy System Puts Out Only 7% Of It’s Rated Capacity in November!

Germany has spent money on renewable energy, like wind and solar power, like few others in the world. So far the country has invested hundreds of billions. How’s the return on investment? Pretty lousy, especially this November. The European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) today has a story on how wind parks and solar […]
