The Heinrich Böll Foundation’s Aversion To Debate

Dr. Sebastian Lüning’s and Professor Fritz Vahrenholt’s “Die kalte Sonne” site here bring us a perfect example illustrating how debate losers like to handle debate: simply declare it over and walk away. (Translated and edited by P Gosselin)


The Heinrich Böll Foundation runs a climate blog called “Klima der Gerechtigkeit (Climate of Justice). Author Lili Fuhr writes regularly there on topics like “James Hansen predicts much higher sea level rise over the coming decades: 2°C more is much too much!” or “Pope opposes emissions trading in climate protection”. In the reader comments there really isn’t much going on. Perhaps there’s a very strict moderation in place? Indeed at the site it is stated:

We are beyond whether climate change is taking place and whether it is caused by man. It is aseptic to continue this debate. Now it gets down to having a discussion on what is the best way to combat it [climate change].

Following the Boll Foundation’s logic we’d also lead an aseptic debate. This saddens us naturally because we are convinced that climate is changing, and that this always happened in pre-industrial times. Perhaps readers would like to inject a little life to Lili Fuhr’s blog and leave a few comments? Here you can go to her blog. Kalte Sonne chief Editor Sebastian Lüning tried, and within 50 milliseconds a reply page appeared bearing the message: “Spam deleted”. That’s what we call an especially rash and consequential comment oderation..

    Surprising things might be discovered if you have engineering science skill and don’t start with an agenda/

    Proof that CO2 has no effect on climate and identification of the two factors that do cause reported climate change (sunspot number is the only independent variable) are at (new update with 5-year running-average smoothing of measured average global temperature (AGT), results in a near-perfect explanation of AGT since before 1900; R^2 = 0.97+).
