German Officials, Media, Scientists Hiding Facts Behind Sudden North And Baltic Sea Warming

By Die kalte Sonne 

(German text translated by P. Gosselin)

The Federal Ministry of Transport is looking at the temperature of the North German seas. Is that really the right Ministry for this? And why has the Green Party’s Steffi Lemke put forth this question? Before we take a closer look, let’s first clarify the facts. To do this, we go to and read:

The temperature jump of the late 1980s is also strongly pronounced in the sea surface temperatures of the North Sea and Baltic Sea, with levels rising by 1°C (Fig. 4).

The cause behind the strong warming of the late 1980s is not yet fully understood. But an important role is probably played by the oceanic cycle: North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), which back at that time reached maximum positive values and which afterwards were never reached again (Fig. 5).

The NAO is influenced by solar activity and is an important factor in controlling precipitation and temperature in parts of Europe.

Ignoring the NAO

Steffi Lemke ignored the effect of the NAO on German sea temperatures, i.e. she concealed the medium-term natural climate dynamics. The sharp rise in temperature is largely due to the rise in the NAO, so Lemke is consciously or unintentionally misleading the public here.

One could dismiss this as a political move. But why are the scientists, who should know better, remaining silent? They are remaining silent for a good reason: because anyone who gets into a fight with the Greens this day and age has to fear the most serious personal and career consequences. There is an FFF mob being stirred up and bullying. It’s better to shut up and let Steffi do it.

Cooling since 2005 unmentioned

Also the Ministry of Transport(!) is to be reproached here. Why was the NAO reference not included? Why was it not mentioned that it has become colder again in recent years (Fig. 4).

There are too many amateurs in the public climate debate. Ms. Lemke fuels fear of climate change, the Ministry fails to provide the context and Die Welt uncritically reports the sorrowful result. And Scientists are remaining silent for fear of reprisals. Something is going wrong in the climate state of Germany.

    This is Lysenkoism.

    Lysenkoism has always a deep ideological root.

    The Federal Ministry of Transport and the Green Party’s member are just what Lenine would call “useful idiots”.

    The main culprits are the puppeteers who put on stage all these usefull idiots among who :
    – corrupted and/or complete incompetent politicians – most of them, Greens, XR, …, activists, Marxists, pseudo-journalists, pseudo-scientists, charlatans, scamsters, henchmen to shut down any contrariant, …

    I would bet that some of these puppeteers are (were) members of the Club of Rome who expressed in the 70s a clear Malthusian (and nonsensical) ideology which since then has been falsified by actual data but is nevertheless still alive :

    “The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”

    For those psychopaths, any bad event is caused by humans be it a flood, a drought, a cold snap, an eruption, an earthquake, a heat wave, a tornado, an epidemic, etc.

      I posted this back in 2019 as proof of what you are asserting.

      Kind of hard for them to convincingly deny it, when they have admitted it so often themselves.
