Public Interest In Climate Protection Wanes (Again) in Germany – Rahmstorf Whines

By P Gosselin

Despite all the media über-hype about this year’s weather extremes, which are normal to begin with, and the upcoming Cancun Conference, German public interest in climate protection fell yet again during the 3rd quarter of 2010, from 56 to 55, according to the co2online GmbH, a program set up by the German Ministry for Energy.

The reason for the drop was due to the lack of interest by the media in reporting on climate change. The public is bored by the topic.

The Climate Barometer is published every quarter and is based on the evaluation of 4 indicators, which are converted to form the Climate Barometer index.


Experts complained about the continued wane in public interest. Thomas Hirschof the organisation: Bread for the World:

In the energy debate, climate protection is an issue that was very much overshadowed by the recent  issue of nuclear power in Germany.

Prof. Dr. Stefan Rahmstorf, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research:

Flooding in Pakistan and heatwave in Russia brought the topic in the media, but incredibly little. There is also very little discussion on the causes of such extreme events.

I can’t help Mr Hirsch, but perhaps I can give Dr Rahmstorf, Prince of Panic, some background on extreme weather events and their causes.

Cyclones globally are near record lows and have been falling 20 years. So it can’t be because of global warming. So get a life Dr Rahmstorf. You’re fooling no one.

William M. Connolley long time, his personal views with impunity under the theme of climate change en.wikipedia more than 5428 articles in the press.

Nor did he stop there to conceal the traces of his crusades against “climate deniers” with the help of his Admin privileges (through manipulation of databases).

In connection with the outlet of the scientist Hal Lewis of the American Physical Society, he has once again gone all out to lead his campaign on.

This was clearly the straw that brought the barrel to overflow: William M. Connolley was 7-0 against in Wikipedia topic banned from climate change.

From the miraculous resurrection of extinct species

October 13, 2010 Leave a comment

The types of braces again makes the rounds.

Surprisingly, however, once the other way around:
Supposedly extinct animals are still alive

Again and again, “Extinct” on what is not in the least surprising.

World probably extinct mammals are much less than feared. More than a third of the extinct since since 1500 species believed to have been rediscovered, two researchers at the Australian University of Queensland report in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B “. A total of 67 of the 187 had initially emerged as a declared or not long-extinct animals sighted again.

Apart from the fact that 99.9% of all extinct on this planet have ever existing species long before the wanton destruction of the environment by modern humans, arise all the “reports” about extinct species of the “imagination” of their creators.

No one can provide evidence for the extinction of the native garden in my invisible pink unicorn – and just as is true of all other species on our planet.

It is and will remain wishful thinking, nothing more, nothing less.
