Leading Dutch Blog/Economist Slams Schellnhuber: “Completely Detached From Reality…Alice In Wonderland”!

It looks like the article I wrote about Prof. Hans Schellnhuber a couple of days ago helped inspire a new commentary by Dr. Hans Labohm (a former expert IPCC reviewer) that appeared yesterday at the leading De Dagelijkse Standaard blogsite. Hans Joachim Schellnhuber: Het is nog erger dan we dachten.’ (Hans Joachim Schellnhuber: ‘It’s worse than we thought.’) […]

Schellnhuber Postpones Warming Another Decade! Now Warning Of +8°C Warming For The Year 2200!

Professor Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber spoke at the Stakeholders Conference on the 2015 Agreement last week. You can watch him speak from the 2:30 – 37:00 mark. He made a couple of surprising statements. Schellnhuber starts off by claiming that media reports saying there’s no consensus are false and are only designed to spread confusion. He claims that there […]

The Washington Post lashes out at Europe’s failure to impose a continent-wide cap and trade scheme designed to make carbon fuels more expensive, calling European governments “incompetent central planners” and the continent as a whole a “green energy basket-case“. The Post laments that Europe has blown a big opportunity to become a greener economy. I […]

Coming Ice Age…According To Leading Experts, Global Mean Temperature Has Dropped 1°C Since 1990!

Climate science/renewable energy critic Rainer Hoffmann has researched the literature on mean global surface temperature. Stunningly, he shows that something is not right with the figures coming from the world’s leading climate experts. The figures tell us the mean global surface temperature has dropped 1°C over the last 25 years. At that rate, we’ll be in an ice age […]
