German University of Leipzig Suppresses Climate-Critical Seminar

Blatant censorship of dissenting scientific opinions on the subject of climate change and its causes is the post-modern trend. After recent attempts to ban the scientifically undesirable paper by renown scientists Spencer & Braswell and the ban of the climate-critical conference at the Belgian Society of European Engineers and Industrialists (SEII) by IPCC Vice Chair Prof. J. van Ypersele, the Faculty for Physics and Geosciences of the University of Leipzig, Germany, is the next to suppress open scientific debate. Last Tuesday, University of Leipzig science faculty dean Prof. Dr. Jürgen Haase barred a climate seminar organized by (his own) geography professor Werner Kirstein, [...]

UN climate of desperation

DAVID ROTHBARD & CRAIG RUCKER – The Washington Times As the United Nations wrapped up its recent climate conference in Bonn, talks organizer Christiana Figueres proclaimed that climate change is the “the most important negotiation the world has ever faced.” Faced with real problems – financial meltdowns, unemployment, war and genuine human suffering – the world no longer agrees. It’s a good thing human productivity doesn’t threaten the global thermostat the way the U.N. would have us believe. If it did, we’d be cooked. Countries rich and poor are backing away from commitments they made years ago during rosier economic times, [...]

CFACT / EIKE scientific briefing – Bonn climate conference. Watch now from the UNFCCC

Scientific briefing CLICK TO VIEW NOW This morning CFACT & EIKE presented a scientific briefing at the UN conference on climate change in Bonn, Germany.  The briefing was introduced by Wolfgang Müller of EIKE and Berlin's Manhattan Institut and featured Professor em. Friedrich Karl Ewert a geologist from Paderborn University and Dr. Horst Borchert of the Johannes-Gutenberg Universität in Mainz.  The presentations build upon the analysis of Professor S. Fred Singer and provide information on the geological record, solar activity and the big question -- is our climate governed by man or nature?

UN opens climate conference in Bonn. CFACT press conference: Wednesday 14:00 CET room Haydn

The UN climate conference in Bonn opens today and CFACT has partnered with EIKE to send a delegation led by Dr. Holger Thuss.  The UNFCCC is banking on these subsidiary conferences to set the stage for major agreements in Durban South Africa in December.  The global warming scare and the inept and corrupt nature of proposed solutions have fallen far out of favor with the public and policy makers are taking notice and defecting.  CFACT has scheduled a  UNFCCC hosted press conference for Wednesday, 14:00 CET in the Hotel Maritim's room Haydn.  The press conference may be webcast live [...]

Organic cucumbers (Sprouts?) kill 14 in Germany

An outbreak of E-coli contamination in organic cucumbers has sickened 1,200 people and killed 14.  Scores of victims have lost all kidney function as a result of the infection with many forced to use dialysis. Green campaigners routinely attack fruits and vegetables grown and protected using efficient modern methods.  No evidence exists that "organic" foods offer any nutritional benefits over foods produced by modern farming.  There were certainly no health benefits for the victims of this tragic outbreak. To learn more about The Truth About Organic Foods, CFACT recommends Alex Avery's book by that title.  CFACT Europe produced a translation of [...]

Energy Panic

by Einar Du Rietz German Chancellor Merkel’s announcement that all nuclear plants will be shut down within ten years has, rightly caused both joy, confusion and fear. Not just in Germany, but all over Europe. That the announcement was triggered by the resurrected anti nuclear campaign, smelling fresh blood after the – no doubt – catastrophic accident in Japan is self evident. Another word for this is populism. Or, maybe, panic. Once that public and apparently governmental panic has settled, it’s a fair guess that this hasty decision will be revoked in a few years time. Until then, the problems remain. [...]

Massive carbon fraud cost Germany €850 million

"Fictitious trades, fictitious companies, bogus addresses" The Süddeutschen Zeitung reports that German fraud investigators have found that €850 million fell off the table when shady companies swarmed into the carbon trading, emissions and energy business.  The criminal companies rake in tens to hundreds of millions, fend off regulators with delaying tactics and then announce bankruptcy or disappear. Düsseldorf tax investigators found that in less than a quarter of an hour emissions certificates might change hands five times.  The same CO2 allowance would trade up to 18 times. A perverse form of recycling as the Süddeutschen Zeitung makes clear. Elements [...]

Energy Commissioner: “process of de-industrialization in full swing”

German electricity prices a barrier to business EU Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger has told the German government that its taxes and fees on electricity have doubled since 1998, now stand at 41 percent and will continue to increase due to subsidies for alternative energy.  Oettinger warned that this has moved the gradual process of de-industrialization into full swing and is forcing business and industry to flee the country. German electricity costs were described as at the upper edge of what is socially reasonable.  How much more will German ratepayers tolerate before they reach their breaking point?

Helumut Schmidt calls for scientific scrutiny of the IPCC

If they've lost the old guard of the SPD, who's left? In a recent speech the former German Chancellor and Socialist leader said that he was concerned, "by the phenomenon of global warming and its alleged consequences. We know that there have always been naturally occurring ice ages and warm periods; what we don't know is how significant the human-induced contribution to present and future global warming is and will be. The climate policy adopted by many governments is still in its infancy. The publications provided by an international group of scientists (the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC) have encountered skepticism, [...]

CFACT video links climate conferences in Berlin & Cancun. Dr. Spencer joins from Alabama

CFACT recently created a live video conference which linked our climate conference in Berlin to the UN conference in Cancun and Professor Roy Spencer in Huntsville, Alabama.  Lord Christopher Monckton and CFACT Executive Director Craig Rucker reported from Cancun.  Participants in the Berlin conference, which CFACT co-sponsored with EIKE and other groups, have since described the video link as a "highpoint." Here's an extensive report (auf Deutsch).   Berlin, Berlin, wir waren in Berlin. CFACT thanks all of our friends in Europe for their hard work in making this conference a great success.  The continued opening of the European mind is one [...]

A new dark age for Germany?

Offshore wind power projects pave the way to frequent blackouts EDGAR L. GAERTNER Thousands of bureaucrats are preparing for another cushy climate confab in Cancun — while U.S. Senators Bignaman, Brownback and Reid are contemplating how to ram renewable energy standards through a lame-duck session of Congress.  If they’re wise, American voters and congressmen will pay extra careful attention to the awful dilemma of German climate and energy policy, as exemplified by recent events and make sure their country doesn’t make the same “green” mistakes Germany did. Barely two months after the inauguration ceremony for Germany’s first pilot offshore wind farm, [...]

CFACT cosponsors international climate conference

Berlin – December 3 & 4, 2010 International Conference on Energy and Climate: Parallel to the UN Climate summit in Cancún we want to invite you to our 3rd International Climate conference. One year after the Climategate scandal, leading international scientists will present new findings in the fields of climate science and energy. In many cases these findings are contrary to the claims made by the IPCC. During two days we will cover topics from the science of climate change to the socio-political and economic impact of current climate and energy policies. Due to the current changes in Europe’s energy policy, [...]

Bright Idea: German entrepeneur markets light bulbs as heat bulbs

4,000 snap up incandescent light bulbs A German entrepeneur got around the EU ban on incandescent light bulbs over 60 watts by importing them as heaters from China.  His shipment of 4,000 bulbs sold immediately.  That makes at least 4,001 Germans who see the folly of restricting individual consumers from choosing their own preferred light.  The bureaucrats may prefer their light ghostly, expensive and laced with mercury, but that doesn't mean the rest of us shouldn't be allowed to choose a warm pleasant light, emitted by Edison's benign tungsten filament in a vacuum, at a price affordable to all.  Großartig!

End Game or Mid Term – Bonn

by Einar Du Rietz, Bonn The game is not over yet, but the climate talks in Bonn are. For the time being. Another session is already scheduled for August, and it might very well be that the free-lunchers will squeeze yet another in, during the buildup of expectations before Cancun. After the enormous debacle before, during and after Copenhagen, it seems unlikely that the general public hysteria could be regenerated. You can’t fool all the people all the time, but remember that you can still fool some. […]

At Least – Leave Those Kids Alone

by Einar Du Rietz, Bonn I feel old sometimes. I’m not, according to my doctor, but I’m at least not “Youth”, as defined by the United Nations to be between the age of 15 and 24 (for the first three years in there, you also have the privilege of being “child” at the same time). Couldn’t care less. The UNFCCC however, cares a lot, and that’s where I start to care. […]
