ZDF German Television Attacks Climate Skeptics

Yesterday I mentioned here how Stefan Rahmstorf spends more time organising PR campaigns than he does doing science (understandable I guess, as crystal ball gazing takes only a few minutes per day).

It took less than a day for him to confirm this observation.

EIKE posted here yesterday that ZDF television did a Frontal drive-by-shooting on the climate skeptics, particularly EIKE, and the Berlin Climate Conference, which took place last weekend. Of course, as is the case with all such attack reports of this kind, there’s always the same unhappy and increasingly nervous person behind it: Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute For Climate Impact Research.

I was wondering what German readers think of the following ZDF clip:

Keep in mind that while almost all serious scientists say the sea level will rise around 30 cm over the next 90 years, Rahmstorf is one of the few oddballs who’s way out in left field, with a couple of other kooks like Al Gore, claiming sea levels will rise 1.4 meters or more.

Unfortunately for him, Jason/Topex shows a clear deceleration of sea level rise over the last years.

I’m wondering what the German readers think of the Frontal report.

    NASA NOAA Climate sensitivity for a doubling of CO2 is below 1.65 degree Celsius!


    And we all know how important the opinion from NASA is don’t we.

      Gee, that’s the number Svante Arrhenius came up with 104 years ago!

      I think 100 bn a year or 1.5 % of global GDP is such a huge amount of money that not one of the global political-parasitical caste thinks for one moment to give it to some climate mitigation nonsense.

      At the moment, 10,000s of bureaucrats are trying to figure out ways to get at the money once it arrives. The biggest slush fund of history!

      Look at these search results to get a feeling for the food fights we will see:

    Ok, watched the clip. I am not surprised that the ZDF journos are still 100& alarmist. I am also not surprised that Rahmstorf is lying (he says that climate sceptics don’t publish in journals. Lindzen and Spencer’s existence proves that he’s a liar.). He comes across as a rather insecure, boyish person who breathes helium before doing interviews. The ZDF journos are also openly taking a side – saying “until then, hundreds of people will already have died from climate change” – i count that as pure propaganda. So, in that regard, the programme is propagandistic dreck of the lowest standard. Total journalistic fail.

    OTOH, it is astonishing that they let the EIKE president and the FDP guy talk without distorting their message. So they are not even able to be consequential in their propagandistic attitude.

    The ZDF journos are not worth a spit.

    The odds are we’ll have ice age conditions from 2014.

    If that’s the case the morons of the ZDF will shut up.

    Another excellent article from Dr. Timothy Ball.
    Most of the public realizes the global warming and climate change due to human produced CO2 deception is over
    Climate Change Not a Political Issue Anymore Except For Mainstream Media
