The German Weather Service recently issued a press release claiming that August had been “one of the warmest on record”. Yet German data show no warming at all in the last 20 years.
Where’s The Climate Warming? Nowhere To Be Found In Germany

The following chart shows Germany’s August temperatures for the last 20 years using the data from Germany’s Deutsche Wetterdienst (DWD) in Offenbach. Nowhere is a steady warming trend to be found.
August mean temperatures last 20 years.
To the contrary, the trendline for the last 20 years is falling somewhat. However, the meteorologists of the German Weather Service publicly argue, in contradiction to their own data, that the trend of warming continues unabated.
But nowhere does anyone find a trend of continued warming. Also August data confirm what the annual data show.
The IPCC and other climate institutes have done their work. For 20 years temperatures have remained steady with a slight downward trend. The IPCC and the PIK Potsdam Institute can now be disbanded.
108 hectares of new UHI area every day in Germany
On the other hand, it is correct to say that summers have gotten warmer compared to the period 40 to 50 years ago. But this has more to do with a perception of warming that stems from the increasing urban heat island (UHI) from the growing and spreading building construction taking place. In Germany 108 hectares of natural landscape are converted by man into concrete, asphalt and buildings every day. Each new wind turbine consumes on average 5 hectares of land and forests. These added heat islands impact the measurement stations of the German Weather Service. The perceived warming does not stem from some greenhouse gas, but rather from the growing urban heat islands and paving over of natural areas.
Sometimes there are warmer periods and sometimes there are cooler ones. Currently the trend is again a light cooling. This is mainly due to the multi-faceted impacts of the sun and cosmic radiation. The climate of the Earth is created in space, and not on the Earth. Apples still ripen at the same time of the year as they did 50-60 years ago. The May bug always comes out, if at all, in May just as it did 250 years ago, as described in our old songs about May. There haven’t been any major changes especially over the last decades compared to earlier times. The May temperatures for the last decades confirm this.
May mean temperatures last 21 years.
Atmospheric concentrations of CO2 have increased relatively strongly over the last 20 years. However, temperatures have been dropping slightly. From this one could only assume that more CO2 has a cooling effect on the climate. That is precisely the opposite of what is claimed by our highly-paid climate warming protectors. The climate models showing rising temperatures as a result of rising, climate-killing CO2 are pure, invented fairy tales.
We are all in favor of real environmental protection and care. But climate protection on the other hand is a pure business scam
