Hallo Herr Rahmstorf, schade, dass Sie einen Fehler nicht zugeben können, sondern einen drauf setzen müssen.
Ich zitiere in meinem Artikel vier Experten mit Kommentaren zu Ihrer nicht in der Fachliteratur publizierten Kurve, alle fällen ein höchst kritisches Urteil⬇️ 1/🧵 pic.twitter.com/pjd2Xl83Zf

Rahmstorf writes to Bojanowski (see above):
Needless to say – the hockey stick curve is well confirmed by hundreds of scientists after more than two decades of further research – also by the latest data shown above. Its authors have received many awards.
And I’m going swimming now!
Bojanowski reply (in English):
Hello Mr. Rahmstorf, it is a pity you cannot admit a mistake, but even have to put one on top.
In my article, I quote four experts with comments on your curve, which has not been published in the technical literature, all of whom make a highly critical judgment.”
Mann jumps in
Even Michael Mann, the creator of the false hockey stick, jumped in as well in typical hothead fashion, offering to “fix” Bojanowaski’s Twitter account:
Like Rahmstorf, Mann too avoided criticizing the four scientists underpinning Bojanowski’s comment, instead resorted to throwing insults and name-calling.
Kachelmann: “potsdumb unscientific nonsense of Rahmstorf”
Moreover, warmist (but non-alarmist) high-profile Swiss meteorologist Jörg Kachelmann got into the fracas, taking a hard shot as well, but at the alarmist camp, tweeting (English below):
Ein #Thread von @Axel_Bojanowski zum potsdämlich-unwissenschaftlichen Unsinn von @rahmstorf und dessen Pressesprecher @terliwetter, der den Sender @zdf als Outlet für die regelmässige Absonderung von Stuss missbraucht.
Wie lange noch? Keine journalistischen Standards mehr @zdf? https://t.co/eqyvz01pXc

Kachelmann’s tweet above in English:
A #thread from @Axel_Bojanowski on the pots-dumb unscientific nonsense of @Rahmstorf
and his press spokesman @terliwetter, who misuse broadcaster @zdf as an outlet for the regular secretion of bullshit.
How much longer? No more journalistic standards @zdf?”
In summary, there seems to be some progress being made on how science gets conducted in Germany. Increasingly dissenters are seeing victories and the public is growing weary of all the arrogance from certain scientists – especially in the fields of climate, COVID-19 and energy.
But it remains to be seen whether or not this long overdue trend gathers steam.

“Even Michael Mann, the creator of the false hockey stick, jumped in as well…”
Oh, yes. Michael Mann and his voodoo scienciness.
“… the hockey stick curve is well confirmed by hundreds of scientists after more than two decades of further research …”.
Indeed, those ‘hundreds of scientists’ employed the same flawed sample screening process viz. ‘ex post screening’, a process that more or less guarantees a hockey stick shape even from white noise as satirized by Josh (re: Gergis et al 2013):
There is a discussion of the hopelessly biasing process here:
Mann and Rahmstorf attempt to defend the indefensible — and fail!
This is sad, a miserable obvious fiction that is supposed to represent the work of honest ‘climate scientists’. But it is not scientific and certainly not honest, as acknowledged by the sane and knowledgeable majority of the scientific community. It’s currently disregarded by the IPCC as it is too embarrassingly flawed even for them.
No, that Mann made hokey-stick graphic is utter nonsense from a world-class, ever deceptive, climate clown, and defended by his European propagandist oaf Rahmstorf and his coven of 10th rate apostles at Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK).
I must say Twitter encourages extreme Bad Mann-ers, but some hilarious comments.
Potsdämlich – LOL!
Search ‘Rahmstorf’ here (22,000 viewings) …
If you follow the link to ‘Sources’, you’ll find him mentioned again, several times, exposing his version of ‘science’.
Money distorts everything.
“Dämlich” means in German “daft”, “stupid”, “dumb”. Referring to the city of Potsdam or someone/something belonging to or hailing from the place, the proper term to use is “Potsdamer”, like in “Ich bin ein Berliner/Hamburger/Potsdamer”.
Thus, you would not say “der potsdämliche Bürgermeister”, but “der Potsdamer Bürgermeister”; however, the local rivalry between Berliner and Potsdamer inspired the former to use the term “potsdämlich” as a derogatory pun, first in the 19th century, I believe, insinuating that their neighbours from Potsdam are daft.

I like “Faktenmörder,” myself. It suits the violence they wish to perpetrate against humanity. First they came for the facts, then those for whom facts were important.
