The English language Spiegel magazine has lengthy piece on the crumbling climate science consensus. Yes folks, soon we’ll be hearing that 97% of all climate scientists say there is no consensus.
This Spiegel piece is tantamount to yet another cruise missile direct hit on alarmist climate science. The alarmist climate science bunker appears to have finally been breached. Now even IPCC scientists are abandoning ship.
The AR5 has not even yet been released and already it’s facing Cat 5 hurricane headwinds from major global media outlets. Keep in mind that Spiegel used to be as warmist as they came. Now they are as non-consensus as they come.
Warming Plateau? Climatologists Face Inconvenient Truth
Data shows global temperatures aren’t rising the way climate scientists have predicted. Now the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change faces a problem: publicize these findings and encourage skeptics — or hush up the figures.
For a quarter of a century now, environmental activists have been issuing predictions in the vein of the Catholic Church, warning people of the coming greenhouse effect armageddon. Environmentalists bleakly predict global warming will usher in plagues of biblical dimensions — perpetual droughts, deluge-like floods and hurricanes of unprecedented force.
The gig is up, my friends. It really is disintegrating.

I love the quote from a delegate:
“In climate research, changes don’t count until they’ve been observed on a timescale of 30 years,” claims one delegate participating in the negotiations on behalf of German Research Minister Johanna Wanka of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU).
Oh, now it’s 30 years!
But Marotzke to his credit responded beautifully.
Then the warming from 1980 to 2000 doesn’t count?
Wanka was Minister in Brandenburg, which is also home of PIK, before Merkel (or Schellnhuber ?) chose her for her cabinet.
O/T Hamburg wants to buy back its power grid, gas network and district heating from Vattenfall; as residents decided by vote.
THe article does not only talk about that but also gives some insight into the mad world of German electricity regulations. A consequence of the regulations: Whoever invests the most money into his part of the grid gets to make the most profits from it. (They are determined by, guess what, the state)
