What follows is just a list media reports on the German Umweltbundesamt abusing its power by singling out, naming and defaming climate skeptics in a 122 page pamphlet that was funded by tax payers. It’s for your reference and hopefully it will help German readers.

When a large government agency like the UBA uses its massive resources to single out, villify and literally spread lies about private individuals in attempt to marginalize and injure their repuation, solely because they have a different opinion on an issue, then it has to be taken as a very troubling development. When was this last used in Germany, we have to ask.
The list is not complete, and links of course can be added. Sorry, most are in German. But the NoTricksZone articles are in English and talk about the German articles.
The latest real development occurred on May 27, with the German Journalists Association publicly demanding that the UBA recall it’s pamphlet and that Minister Peter Altmaier officialy apologize to the German journalists named in the pamphlet.
