Nowhere Do Data From Germany’s Weather Service Show Warming Taking Place Over Last 20 Years

The German Weather Service recently issued a press release claiming that August had been “one of the warmest on record”. Yet German data show no warming at all in the last 20 years.

Where’s The Climate Warming? Nowhere To Be Found In Germany
By Josef Kowatsch for EIKE
(Translated and edited by P Gosselin)

The following chart shows Germany’s August temperatures for the last 20 years using the data from Germany’s Deutsche Wetterdienst (DWD) in Offenbach. Nowhere is a steady warming trend to be found.

August mean temperatures last 20 years.

To the contrary, the trendline for the last 20 years is falling somewhat. However, the meteorologists of the German Weather Service publicly argue, in contradiction to their own data, that the trend of warming continues unabated.

But nowhere does anyone find a trend of continued warming. Also August data confirm what the annual data show.

The IPCC and other climate institutes have done their work. For 20 years temperatures have remained steady with a slight downward trend. The IPCC and the PIK Potsdam Institute can now be disbanded.

108 hectares of new UHI area every day in Germany

On the other hand, it is correct to say that summers have gotten warmer compared to the period 40 to 50 years ago. But this has more to do with a perception of warming that stems from the increasing urban heat island (UHI) from the growing and spreading building construction taking place. In Germany 108 hectares of natural landscape are converted by man into concrete, asphalt and buildings every day. Each new wind turbine consumes on average 5 hectares of land and forests. These added heat islands impact the measurement stations of the German Weather Service. The perceived warming does not stem from some greenhouse gas, but rather from the growing urban heat islands and paving over of natural areas.

Sometimes there are warmer periods and sometimes there are cooler ones. Currently the trend is again a light cooling. This is mainly due to the multi-faceted impacts of the sun and cosmic radiation. The climate of the Earth is created in space, and not on the Earth.  Apples still ripen at the same time of the year as they did 50-60 years ago. The May bug always comes out, if at all, in May just as it did 250 years ago, as described in our old songs about May. There haven’t been any major changes especially over the last decades compared to earlier times. The May temperatures for the last decades confirm this.

May mean temperatures last 21 years.

Atmospheric concentrations of CO2 have increased relatively strongly over the last 20 years. However, temperatures have been dropping slightly. From this one could only assume that more CO2 has a cooling effect on the climate. That is precisely the opposite of what is claimed by our highly-paid climate warming protectors. The climate models showing rising temperatures as a result of rising, climate-killing CO2 are pure, invented fairy tales.

We are all in favor of real environmental protection and care. But climate protection on the other hand is a pure business scam

    Thought you might be amused

    “Wind turbine destroyed by wind ”

    “A wind turbine was destroyed by 40mph gusts, prompting calls for them to be removed from school playgrounds.”

    Please see my website exposing the widespread fraud of global warming.

    The pretense that 1.346 parts per million annual increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide is driving earth’s climate, when the total concentration of greenhouse gases is~26,000 parts per million is fantasmagoric. Global Warmists are intent on extracting hundreds of billions of dollars more from governments and other donors to continue their “research” into a topic they incessantly argue has already been “proven.” Then stop spending billions more studying it.
    America is already bankrupt. Stop making it worse.

    BTW do not only not trust German scientists. Do as well not trust German pollsters.

    Good news: The Greens dropped to 11% approval.

    Notice that for Die Welt and the pollsters, AfD does not exist. Die Welt is nominally not a leftist paper. This means nothing in EU Realpolitik though.

    Reporting about Euroskeptic parties must always and only happen in the form of Nazi smears. Well done, Die Welt. Good EU lapdog.

    There is no safe distance for wind Turbines, NOT GREEN, NOT CHEAP, NOT RELIABLE, and come with a very BAD side EFFECT on people and the ENVIRONMENT. there is Nothing GREEN about TURBINES. SAY NO TO WIND TURBINES.

    The CO2→Cooling suggestion is not at all implausible. Look up the research and papers by Dr. Jinan Cao.

    1. DirkH

      Cao’s argument is what I’ve been saying (after reading Tom Vonk’s post on WUWT) for the past years.

      But, I would add: Look at how quickly the climate scientist impersonators under UNEP control have switched from “CO2 causes cooling” to “CO2 causes warming” in the 80ies. Because they did blame man made CO2 for cooling in the 70ies.

      It is not important to them whether the net effect is warming or cooling; they know it is too small to matter anyway; for them it is only important to ram an alarmist narrative down the throat of the public to further increase their control.
