Germany’s Bild tells its million of readers:


Renowned team of scientists claim the climate catastrophe is fear-mongering by politics

The phenomenal prognoses of heat from the IPCC are pure fear-mongering.

In German:

Die CO2-Lüge

Renommiertes Forscher-Team behauptet: Die Klima-Katastrophe ist Panik-Mache der Politik

Steht die Menschheit vor einer selbst­gemachten Klima-Katastrophe? Oder ist die globale Erwärmung nur eine große CO2-Lüge hysterischer Wissenschaftler?

James Delingpole:

„Seit 12 Jahren ist die Erd-Erwärmung gestoppt!”

When the Germans start running headlines like that in their biggest tabloid newspaper, you know that for the eco loons Der Krieg ist Verloren. It means “Global Warming stopped twelve years ago,” and it’s part of a serialisation being run by Bild (circulation: 4 million) of Germany’s newest surprise bestseller – a climate sceptical book called Die Kalte Sonne (The Cold Sun).

What’s even more surprising is this: one of the authors, Professor Fritz Vahrenholt, is a former environment minister and well-known green activist.

Deutsche Presse Agentur:

A leading energy executive launched a book Monday that aims to persuade Germans, who are among the world’s most fervent believers in global warming, that burning fossil fuels is harmless.

Fritz Vahrenholt, 62, a former chemistry professor and leftist state politician who is known to go against the grain, heads the renewable energy division of RWE, Germany’s second-biggest utility company.

The book, which is jointly authored with Sebastian Luening, a scientist at the company’s oil division, argues that the sun is growing colder and the greenhouse-gas effect, which they say has been exaggerated, will handily compensate for this.

The authors said Germans should not take such a negative attitude towards fossil fuels.

The book, The Cold Sun: Why the Climate Disaster Won’t Happen, is expected to trigger protest. Criticism of climate-change science is rare in Germany, where solar and wind power have expanded with billions of euros in subsidies through price regulation.
