Things are really hotting up for climate alarmists in Germany. For the first time in several decades, opinion polls show them as a clear minority. That's the good news. The bad news is support for climate alarmism is still plunging further. This, in a country described as the Green heartland of the world. Germany shows the way that climate change is no way a part of environmentalism. But Germany is still very much Green! Climate alarmists are being increasingly exposed as plain astro-turfists - the false "Green" Prophets!
Perhaps reflecting the sharp swing in public mood is the German press. The best example is Der Spielberg, the most popular left wing newspaper in the country, switching editorial policies to be now a champion of climate skepticism.That the German climate scientific community too is turning increasingly climate skeptical is exampled by the just released study "Rescue from Our Climate Saviors: Is the "Global Climate" really in Danger?" The study provides an explanation of pure physics underlying the fictitious dogma of climate alarmism:“It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is. It doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong.”
Richard Feynman, Nobel laureate in Physics, 1965
"By analyzing the energy balance of the earth we were able to show that increased levels of CO2 can by no means result in warming of our planet. The “greenhouse gas theory” and associated “climate disaster” are pure science fiction."KE Research, a German public policy consultancy firm, prepared the report based on interviews and editing assistance from noted German theoretical physicists Ralf D. Tscheuschner & Gerhard Gerlich, authors of the peer-reviewed paper Falsification of the Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects within the Frame of Physics, and numerous other climatologists, physicists, and scientists.Summary of their conclusions:
- The Earth has a natural “cooling system”. It continuously radiates energy into space.
- Any increase in temperatures automatically boosts this radiation.The cooling power jumps up.
- “Global warming” (i.e. a general increase of temperatures) requires this incremental cooling to be compensated by an increase in heating power.
- Accordingly, in order to achieve “global warming”, CO2 had to increase the flow of energy from outside the system to the Earth’s surface. But this is beyond even the claimed capabilities of this gas. Therefore CO2 cannot cause any warming.
- IR gases (“greenhouse gases”) cool the Earth. The “natural greenhouse effect” (i.e. the warming) is a myth.
- Climate variability did and does exist. However, the CO2 level in the atmosphere is not the cause. Aside from the sun itself, changing cloud coverage is the main factor.The best part of the report is that the explanations are all in layman's physics style, experiments that we can do at homes to discover how we have been conned by the climate alarmist community. This is a must read for even the physics illiterates that head the "Climate Change" departments of environmental groups such as Greenpeace and WWF and misled NGOs like Christian Aid will find it easier to grasp the true science behind their claims.KE Research encourages all to freely distribute the report by any means (in unchanged form) and is forwarding copies to all members of the US Senate and House of Representatives, and legislators worldwide.
