Tol/Lomborg Becoming Powerful Voices Of Reason On Climate Policy In German Media: “1 Euro Costs…3 Cents Benefit”

Tol/Lomborg Becoming Powerful Voices Of Reason On Climate Policy In German Media: “1 Euro Costs…3 Cents Benefit”

It seems that it is beginning to dawn on some of Europe’s mainstream media: The transition to green energies is turning out to be ten or even 100 times more expensive than what they were led to believe just a few years ago. Increasingly we have been seeing reports featuring renowned climate economists such as […]

NASA’s Arctic Fudge Factory: “More Than Half” Of Claimed Arctic Warming Stems From “Data Adjustments”

NASA’s Arctic Fudge Factory: “More Than Half” Of Claimed Arctic Warming Stems From “Data Adjustments”

As global warming is being used as justification for profound policy shifts, one has to wonder if the one-sided fudging of data that produces the appearance of more warming is a deliberate attempt to deceive and defraud the public. ============================= Is GISS Also Cheating in the Arctic? By Ed Caryl Almost four years ago, I […]

Germany’s FOCUS Magazine Calls 400 PPM CO2 Concentration “A Critical Threshhold” With “Palpable Impacts”

Only a short post today due to time constraints. The German catastrophists-in-a-hurry media already see the earth being beyond the tipping point and every weather anomaly as a sign of human sin. Geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Professor of Chemistry Fritz Vahrenholt write about a prime example of media climate propaganda that one often finds […]

German DWD Weather Service: “You Cannot Craft A Climate Statistic From One Singular Extreme Weather Situation”

The intense but short heat wave that struck parts of Central Europe earlier this month created quite a bit of hysteria among some German activist climatologists and most of the media. For example IPCC climatologist Mojib Latif attributed the heat and severe thunderstorms to global warming. Stefan Rahmstorf tried to hint this may be the […]

Deutsche Wetterdienst: Could Some German Record High Temperature Recordings Be Relics Of Shoddy Station Siting?

Deutsche Wetterdienst: Could Some German Record High Temperature Recordings Be Relics Of Shoddy Station Siting?

Early this week a German meteorologist tweeted that Germany had set a new record high for the date in the southern state of Baden Wurttemberg at a station called Rheinstetten. I was even told that the station was fairly new (and thus reliable?). I’ve noticed that on hot days the Rheinstetten station always appeared to be […]

European Institute For Climate And Energy: Chinese Activist Unleashed (Temporary) Global Wave Of Euphoria

The European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) writes of the German reaction to the “announcement” made by a prominent Chinese figure, He Jiankun, who yesterday stated that CO2 in his country would be capped. The announcement sent waves of euphoria throughout the global media and top climate officials. It appeared to be the long-awaited breakthrough. But […]

Hell Freezes Over! Germany’s Ultra-Green ‘Die Zeit’ Concedes Climate Movement Has Been Too Alarmist

Germany’s eco-evangelical, leftie weekly Die Zeit has a surprisingly sober online piece that almost got by me. It actually harshly criticizes global warming science – unusual for Die Zeit, which is an influential “intellectual” weekly that has been preaching the science is settled for years. Not long ago it one-sidedly attacked skeptics and portrayed them as […]

7th International Non-Alarmist Climate Conference Sells Out! Yet Not A Single German Media Outlet Shows Up

7th International Non-Alarmist Climate Conference Sells Out! Yet Not A Single German Media Outlet Shows Up

In early April, the 7th Climate Conference, featuring distinguished non-alarmist scientists and organized by the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE), took place at the Steigenberger Hotel Mannheimer Hof in Mannheim, Germany. The 2-day conference featured heavyweights like Richard Lindzen, Nir Shaviv and Henrik Svensmark who brought the message that today’s climate science tells us […]

German Mainstream Media Mocks, Fires Stinging Parody At Country’s Collapsing Renewable Energies Project

This is a first and quite possibly a watershed event when it comes to media sentiment towards green energies. It appears it’s no longer taboo in Germany to mock green energy. In the past German public television and mainstream media always kept the wagons circled around the anthropogenic global warming theory and the Energiewende (transition […]

Prestigious Helmholtz Research Center Gutter-Dives…Promotes Sophomoric Attacks On Skeptics, Labelling Them “Deniers”

Prestigious Helmholtz Research Center Gutter-Dives…Promotes Sophomoric Attacks On Skeptics, Labelling Them “Deniers”

It’s worrisome enough that the German government itself recently issued a brochure singling out, naming, and defaming German and American climate science skeptics. Today we have one of Germany’s most prestigious science associations actively backing adolescent-level attacks on skeptics who have decided not to take part in the collective climate hysteria. This morning on Twitter […]

Major German Daily ‘Die Welt’ Wildly Exaggerates Western Antarctic Ice Shelf Melt By 1100 Times!

Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt write here how German online flagship daily Die Welt here published an alarming article about Antarctic sea ice melt some two weeks ago. Die Welt wrote: Giant Antarctic glacier melting unstoppably The Pine Island Glacier in the Antarctic is melting irreversibly according to a study. Scientists expect that sea level will rise […]

From “Jewish Science” To “Denier Science”: Copernicus Charade Is Latest Example Of German Intolerance To Alternative Climate Science Explanations

A number of websites have thoroughly and deservedly thrashed Germany-based Copernicus Publications for terminating one of its scientific journals: Pattern Recognition in Physics. Read here, here and here. The reason for terminating the entire publication was an IPCC skeptical paper titled: General conclusions regarding the planetary–solar–terrestrial interaction, authored by an impressive roster of leading maverick scientists. […]

Watershed! BBC Now Sees Sun Developing Into A Potent 21st Century Climate Factor As A Real Possibility!

Slowly, almost imperceptibly, but surely, the once diehard the-science-is-settled mainstream media are conceding that the climate debate isn’t over after all – and likely not by a long shot. And if you pay attention, you can see them quietly opening that back door for the quick exit. The cracking started long ago, and now chips […]

German Public Television Stuns Its Readers, Concedes Medieval Warm Period May Have Been 0.5°C Warmer Than Today!

German Public Television Stuns Its Readers, Concedes Medieval Warm Period May Have Been 0.5°C Warmer Than Today!

In Germany climate science used to be considered completely settled. Global temperatures had been pretty much steady for a thousand years before skyrocketing upwards as soon as man really started industrializing about 150 years ago, Germans were told again and again. But today Germany’s major media are beginning to realize that this view is perhaps quite naïve […]
