German professor, co-founder of modern environmental movement, says climate science is exaggerated, filled with fairy tales and believes the Paris Accord is “already dead”. 

In an interview with publicist Roland Tichy, Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt – one of the founders of Germany’s modern environmental movement – said we have in fact three generations time to revamp the world’s energy supply system to one that is cleaner and sustainable.

He rejects the Fridays For Future claim that there are only 12 years left.

Climate catastrophe not taking place

In the interview, moderator Tichy reminded that civilization began 7000 years ago, a time when it was “3°C warmer than today”, and Vahrenholt responded saying he expects civilization to continue for another seven thousand years. There was no tipping point back then, why would there be one today? “Warmth and moisture have always been good for mankind,” said Vahrenholt. “Cold has been man’s worst enemy.”

Plenty of time to move rationally

The German professor also said that the claimed catastrophe “is not taking place” and that policymakers are trying to use “panic and fear to get the people to act.”  Much of the warming measured since 1850 is the result of natural warming taking place due to the end of the Little Ice Age, he explained.

Germany’s green fantasy

Later the German professor of chemistry calls the belief that wind and sun are able replace fossil fuels “fantasizing” and that Germany, with its 2.3% share of global CO2 emissions, can rescue the global climate “a fairy tale”.

Meanwhile, the warming of the last 150 years is in large part caused by natural cycles. “In the 20th century the sun was more active than at any time over the past 2000 years.”

Economically, Vahrenholt believes that a frenzied rush to renewables will lead to “horrible” economic consequences from European industrialization.

On the topic of a scientific consensus, the German professor says this is a claim made by the IPCC, which run by the UN with an agenda behind it.

Electric cars a “crackpot idea”

Vahrenholt also believes electric cars powered by batteries is not a feasible technology, and that other experts quietly call it “a crackpot idea”, and don’t speak up for fear of losing research funding. The vast majority of funding comes from the German government.

“Paris Accord already dead”

The professor of chemistry, co-author of a recent bestseller, also describes Germany as a country in denial when it comes to the broader global debate taking place on climate science, and declared the Paris Accord as being “already dead”.

“The Accord is already dead. Putin says it’s nonsense. […] The Americans are out. The Chinese don’t have to do anything. It’s all concentrated on a handful of European countries. The European Commission in massively on it. And I predict that they will reach the targets only if they destroy the European industries,” said Vahrenholt.

He characterizes Europe’s recent push for even stricter emissions reduction targets to madness akin to Soviet central planning that is doomed to fail spectacularly.

    Nice sum-up of where we are, and where we should not be going, and why. I would just add that “a crackpot idea” applies not just to EV’s, but also to the AGW theory, and the totally unnecessary and wasteful “renewables” response to it.

        Thank you.

        I think it’s important, as you do in your last sentence of the second link, to stress the dire consequences of what seems at best a very misguided agenda.

        “Be appalled that this self-interested underskilled political organization, judging the 1°C of warming since 1900 to be man-made despite profuse evidence of CO2’s innocence …
        https://www.researchgate.net/publication/332245803
        … has unleashed needless multi-trillion-dollar expenditure that will cripple the global economy and keep billions of people in poverty.”

        Ironic, isn’t it, that the UN is the very institution that so many around the world look to for protection against the very policies the UN itself seeks to impose. Appalling, indeed.

    Also the “crackpot idea” is the belief that modern Western industrialized nations could make appreciable amounts of electricity reliably available from solar panels, windfarms and burning biomass (AKA burning trees). Yes you can provide some electricity that way, just don’t believe it when political cronies, hacks and fools say it can be done predictably from these “crackpot” methods. Until that conundrum is solved then gas, coal, oil, nuclear and hydro can and will reliably supply the major amount of electricity that a modern nation’s consumers demand.

    “Europe’s recent push for even stricter emissions reduction targets to madness akin to Soviet central planning that is doomed to fail spectacularly.” if this happens then initially prices of just about everything will rise skywards. And as the social and economic stresses accumulate, Europe’s industrial base will fail, and companies will leave Euroland, with its rising numbers of unemployed. The unemployed who will begin to realize that there is a better way, the way that many other nations of the world have taken despite the UN’s admonitions of them.
    And as the planet starts to cool, sooner or later people will realize that UN’s AGW supposition is a deadly con.

    Man does not control atmospheric CO2 levels — nature does.
    History shows that atmospheric CO2 levels do not define climatic conditions.

    The Paris Accord is about money, not CO2 targets.
    Someone with integrity and knowledge of how to get the information should investigate.
    Barack Obama has heeded calls to help secure the future of the historic Paris agreement by transferring a second $500m instalment to the Green Climate Fund, just three days before he leaves office.” The Guardian, Jan., 2017

    How much money has gone to this Fund?
    Where is that money?
    Who controls it?
    Who oversees this enterprise?

      Money for some, and destroying the occidental civilization for others …

      Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, 2015 :

      “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”

    2. Sommer

      “Someone with integrity and knowledge of how to get the information should investigate.”

      I agree. This needs to happen. The entire global network of organizations associated needs to be investigated now.

    There is archaeological evidence in Turkey (Catal Huyuk) that lead was smelted around 7000BC (lead weights, sinkers, models etc). There is also archaeological evidence from excavations in Turkey (same place as the finding of lead objects) and in Israel (Yiftah El) of polished concrete floors put down in a wet state and hardened (likely a lime cement hardened with CO2 from a fire) date to about 7000BC. By 5000BC Copper was being smelted in Eastern Turkey. Not long after there is evidence of tin smelting. Cupellation ( separation of silver from lead ore) dates to at least 4000BC. Making of bronze dates to prior 3000BC. So the date of the beginning of civilisation some 7000 years ago is short by about 5000 years. Agriculture, domestication of animals, the construction of temples, and houses of stone dates back to about 10000BC

    I remember very vividly that in the 50s the governments and the scientists fantasized with great enthusiasm about powering “everything” directly by nuclear reactors: cars, trains, planes, ships and so on by the year 2000…

    The renewable energy may not be a bad idea but only when it applies to about seven hundred million people populating the planet…
