What follows to me is absolutely stunning. I don’t recall the US government officials and military persons responsible for dropping the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki being brought to trials in Nuremberg. Controversial? Maybe for some. But to put Hiroshima on the same level as Auschwitz?
Excerpt from the PIK press release.

Obviously Schellnhuber knows no scruples when it comes to promoting his alarmist brand of climate science.
Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, is the direct personal advisor to Chancellor Angela Merkel on the “urgent” climate issue. This is a slap to the face of the allied forces who sacrificed so much to liberate the world from the horrible tyranny of the time.
Surely it cannot be the position of the German government to have itself advised by persons with such beliefs.
Some years ago, the brown neo-Nazis in the Saxony Parliament called the bombing of Dresden near the end of WWII a “Bomben-Holocaust“, to which there rightfully was a swift and harsh reaction from politicians, media and citizens.
Schellnhuber’s Hiroshima-Auschwitz press release is no better and deserves the same reaction.
Welcome to the real face of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.
The online Potsdam PNN here/ has the original quote from Schellnhuber (h/t Bernd Felsche):
Conscience, Schellnhuber says with regards to the unanswered questions concerning climate science, does not need absolute certainty: ‘In a world where Hiroshima and Auschwitz happened, I can’t trust that everything will always turn out well.'”
