I’ve been going over and compiling the German reaction to the IPCC’s Summary Report for Policymakers, which tries to dismiss 15 years of global temperature stagnation and the fact that all its models have been wrong. There’s much to sort through.
If what I’ve seen so far is anything to go by, then from IPCC critics expect nothing less than an international tsunami of criticism and rebuttal in the days, weeks, and months ahead. The summary report itself is a disgrace.
Just one example reaction comes from the Baseler Zeitiung, which I wrote about in my last post. The Baseler Zeitung commentary by its editor-in-chief Markus Somm is just a taste of what is coming from a large number of German scientists, journalists and leading skeptics.
IPCC AR5 SPM is a rank obscenity
In general these critics can’t believe that science could be so blind, flawed, and ideological. When it comes to science and the responsibilities therein, AR5 SPM is nothing short of a rank obscenity, and so it must be confronted accordingly.
In the days ahead NoTricksZone will be sorting through all the German reaction and bringing you reports about it. There’s no sense in blowing all the powder at once, even though it looks as if there’s going to be an infinite supply of it.
