Geologist Sebastian Lüning Speaking At Climate Conference In Chicago Today

German geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning, co-author of the best-selling skeptic book Die kalte Sonne, which has created a controversy in Germany, is speaking today at the Heartland Climate Conference in Chicago.

Click below for a live feed:

Title of Dr. Lüning’s presentation:

The Medieval Warm Period within the Context of Millennial Scale Climate Cycles
12:45 p.m. – 2:30 p.m local time, which is 19.45 – 21.30 CET. (You may want to check in one hour early to make sure).


– German reaction to the book
– How solar cycles have impacted climate during the Holocene
– Temperature reconstructions worldwide
– Problems with the IPCC models
– Little Ice Age caused by volcanoes?
– Warming or cooling ahead?

I hope as many readers as possible will join in, watch and comment.

    Very good talk. Nice to see Dr. Lüning live.
    Funniest part: pithart and other trolls snarking around in the chatroom (only saw that stuff scrolling down after Bast stopped talking as I had the window moved over the right end of the screen.)

    pithart, you didn’t have anything but snark. What FACTUAL explanation do you have for the correlation of temperatures with solar activity?
    (Just baiting. I know you don’t have one and that you’re a warmist rent-seeker so you will do what it takes to silence science.)

    My Internet link is not fast enough for me to see all the video, but the audio came through fine. it was a great presentation. My wife said, “I actually understood most of that!” Of course she proof-reads all my essays, so she is familiar with the terms.

    German scientists find out that a nuclear melt down with release of radioactive material is likely to happen every 10 to 20 years globally.

    Says atmospheric chemist Jos Lelieveld at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz.

    How did they find out you ask? Well, simple: they divided the number of reactor years by the number of meltdowns with release of radioactive material – which are 4; 1 in Chernobyl and 3 in Fukushima.

    No really. That’s it. That’s the scientific standard of the Max Planck Society.

    So next time the Max Planck Society announces something, keep that in mind.

    Why is not this posted as a video for those of us unable to view “in real time?”

      They will be. All the past conference presentations are available here:

        Right you are, Ed. Sebastian’s talk should be up for viewing at that site — in a nice, clean version — by Friday. All of the vids should be up at that site by Tuesday of next week.

        That site hosts all the presentations at Heartland’s (now) SEVEN International Conferences on Climate Change. A great resource. You can browse by event, or speaker.

    Doctor Sebastian Lüning, is very easy to understand and makes good sense as he goes about it, In my time, I have heard equally well qualified men and women who unfortunately cannot impart their knowledge and expertise in such a clear way.

    Of course with myself and most on this site he talks to the realist and pragmatic scientist alike and we have no need of convincing.

    Indeed, I would like Dr. Lüning’s words to be heard by a much wider audience, his patience and logical persuasion is direct and just what is needed to be heard by people who are maybe not so sure – there are some left [believe it or not].

    One video online for those who are on the wrong side of the world, wrapped up warmly in bed.

    Presentation starts at about 35 minutes.

    Heartland has archived all the presentations from the seventh and the six previous conferences here:
