Vele alarmistische beweringen zijn eenvoudigweg niet waar.
Sebastian Lüning (geoloog) is samen met Fritz Vahrenholt coauteur van 'Die kalte Sonne', waarin de nadruk op de rol van de zon wordt gelegd in de klimaatverandering. Na publicatie kregen zij golven vitriool van de klimaatalarmisten over zich heen. Het boek is nu ook in het Engels vertaald: 'The Neglected Sun'.
Tijdens de conferentie werd hij geïnterviewd door Bill Jasper
Onder de titel, 'German Geologist Sebastian Lüning Slams IPCC Climate Science: A Lot Of The Claims Are Just Not True', schreef Pierre Gosselin daarover op zijn blog:
Models are faulty no coming catastrophe
In Lünings view, the dire climate warnings are all based on models and the history of climate needs to be taken much more into account for extrapolating into the future. He thinks its no surprise many of the predictions are turning out wrong and reminds us that the earths climate has always seen wide fluctuations and that todays climate is not unprecedented. Its not a catastrophe we are heading to.
On the manipulation of past data, Dr. Lüning thinks the hockey stick was an error involving poor statistics and methods, with a wish for a certain outcome, reminding us that even Michael Mann has revised his charts. The Medieval Warm Period has also been put back in the IPCC 5th Assessment Report.
He agrees there have been political efforts to push through false scientific data. Thats true. And a lot of the articles that are proposed or published by IPCC affiliated scientists; one really has to look twice and three times at them to understand what has happened. And a lot of the claims are just not true.
Lüning agrees there should be development in alternative energies, but describes Germanys renewable energy push as being in complete chaos, and is a system where everyone is crying for subsidies and that the system is now on shaky grounds. He says some media are already backtracking. The tide is changing, I think.
In Lünings view the climate movement reached its peak in 2007, and that more and more people are taking a closer look at his own views. He credits his high profile co-author of the book The Neglected Sun, Fritz Vahrenholt, for getting the climate science skepticism ball moving. Step-by-step we are winning them over and a realism is beginning to take place. He then describes how moderate scientists in Germany and in Europe are becoming more receptive to their non-alarmist message and states that more and more papers on the natural cycles have been coming out.
