The Heinrich Böll Foundation’s Aversion To Debate

Dr. Sebastian Lüning’s and Professor Fritz Vahrenholt’s “Die kalte Sonne” site here bring us a perfect example illustrating how debate losers like to handle debate: simply declare it over and walk away. (Translated and edited by P Gosselin)

===========================

The Heinrich Böll Foundation runs a climate blog called “Klima der Gerechtigkeit (Climate of Justice). Author Lili Fuhr writes regularly there on topics like “James Hansen predicts much higher sea level rise over the coming decades: 2°C more is much too much!” or “Pope opposes emissions trading in climate protection”. In the reader comments there really isn’t much going on. Perhaps there’s a very strict moderation in place? Indeed at the site it is stated:

We are beyond whether climate change is taking place and whether it is caused by man. It is aseptic to continue this debate. Now it gets down to having a discussion on what is the best way to combat it [climate change].

Following the Boll Foundation’s logic we’d also lead an aseptic debate. This saddens us naturally because we are convinced that climate is changing, and that this always happened in pre-industrial times. Perhaps readers would like to inject a little life to Lili Fuhr’s blog and leave a few comments? Here you can go to her blog. Kalte Sonne chief Editor Sebastian Lüning tried, and within 50 milliseconds a reply page appeared bearing the message: “Spam deleted”. That’s what we call an especially rash and consequential comment oderation..

    Surprising things might be discovered if you have engineering science skill and don’t start with an agenda/

    Proof that CO2 has no effect on climate and identification of the two factors that do cause reported climate change (sunspot number is the only independent variable) are at http://agwunveiled.blogspot.com (new update with 5-year running-average smoothing of measured average global temperature (AGT), results in a near-perfect explanation of AGT since before 1900; R^2 = 0.97+).
