Today Focus magazine reports that Berlin has set a new record for the amount of snow on the ground in the month of March. The online news magazine writes:
A 16-centimeter blanket of snow covers the capital city on the first day of spring. ‘It’s the highest amount of snow that has been measured here in March in 100 years,“ says meteorologist Dominik Jung of the weather portal wetter.net.”
In Germany it’s getting so that children will soon no longer know what bare ground in the wintertime is.
High-profile German meteorologist turns skeptic
I recall getting a bit agitated a year or so ago because Jung once repeated the usual global warming rubbish we always hear in the media. But now that Germany has recorded its 5th colder than normal winter in a row and Berlin and Hamburg find themselves digging out from record snow, Jung apparently has looked at the science and data for himself and now seems to conclude that the CO2 theory is indeed over-hyped after all.
Hopefully he’ll pick up a copy of Die kalte Sonne to get complete overview of the science, if he hasn’t already.
Jung’s skepticism is now being reported in major media outlets all over Germany. For example Germany’s no. 1 daily by circulation numbers Bild quoted Jung’s wetternet.de website in bold print yesterday:
“Winters clearly have gotten colder,” says meteorologist Dominik Jung of the weather portal wetter.net. Moreover: “In the year 2000 the climate experts prophesied that winters with ice and snow in Germany would no longer exist. That this claim is false is shown by current facts, and in many regions with just a glance out the window!”
German yahoo.de reports here:
March so far in Germany is about 3.4°C colder than the long-term mean over the period 1981 – 2010. Now weather expert Dominik Jung is questioning climate warming: ‘I don’t think that it’s always going to get warmer.’“
Expect Jung to get a harsh lecture from the catastrophe-obsessed PIK on the evils of spreading “climate disinformation”, if he hasn’t already.
