Only a short post today due to time constraints.
The German catastrophists-in-a-hurry media already see the earth being beyond the tipping point and every weather anomaly as a sign of human sin.
Geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Professor of Chemistry Fritz Vahrenholt write about a prime example of media climate propaganda that one often finds in catastrophe-obsessed Germany. They write:
Michael Odenwald, who is responsible for the populist climate alarm at the German FOCUS news magazine, has struck again. On June 3, 2014 Odenwald penned the following apocalyptic article at the online Focus:
‘Drought, crop failure, ice melt, greenhouse gas record: Never has so much CO2 been measured
For the first time the concentration of greenhouse gas carbon dioxide has exceeded for an entire month a critical threshold. The consequences are an advancing global warming and the now palpable impacts.’
The 4-page article is chock full climate alarmist ideas. Lots of studies that support the catastrophe theories are listed and cited. But upon closer inspection, almost every single one of the claims is not supported by science. We’ve been through it all in detail, and so it is not necessary to repeat it again. The FOCUS chief editors would be well-advised to have Odenwald’s articles to first be checked by independent scientists. Of course here we do not mean member of the PIK (Potsdam Institute). When one reads the FOCUS alarm-piece, one gets the uneasy feeling that the PIK scientists may have probably participated in writing the text…
Reading Odenwald’s claim that the 400 ppm level is “a critical threshold” and backs it up with anecdotes, one gets the impression that he thinks we have already gone beyond the point of no return and that CO2 emitted by man is now the sole cause of all bad weather. Years.
What does this tell us about journalism? If you cannot properly analyze anything, thus making you completely useless to do any practical job, then become a journalist.
