“The CO2 Lies … pure fear-mongering … should we blindly trust the experts?”


BILD Headline - The CO2 Lies - 6Feb2012

That’s what Germany’s leading daily, Bild, wrote in its print and online editions just two days ago (see photo on right), on the very day that renowned publisher Hoffmann & Campe officially released a major climate skeptical book, Die kalte Sonne (The Cold Sun) – written by a prominent socialist and environmental figure, Professor Dr. Fritz Vahrenholt.

Prof Vahrenholt’s skepticism began when he was asked to review an IPCC report on renewable energy. He found hundreds of errors. When he pointed them out, IPCC officials simply brushed them aside. Stunned, he asked himself, “Is this the way they approached the climate assessment reports?”

“Please keep up the good work,” says Neil. “I have enjoyed your books, and have passed them on to others when done.”

NOTE:

Even in the face of the exaggerated IPCC claims (lies might be a better word), one of Vahrenholt’s big concerns seems to be “that if citizens discover that the people who warn of a climate disaster are only telling half the truth, they will no longer be prepared TO PAY HIGHER ELECTRICITY COST for wind and solar (energy). Then the conversion of our energy supply will lack the necessary acceptance.”

Even in the face of the exaggerated IPCC claims, Vahrenholt thinks “we still have to reduce CO2 emissions through WORLDWIDE EMISSIONS TRADING.

Not exactly comforting words.

    They have Six boats working to break the ice between Mannheim and Heilbronn on the Neckar river.They must keep the waterways open otherwise the ships supplying COAL to the the power plants in Heilbronn

    amazing how mainstream media can find any tiny AGW comment to pick up and air and gush over…yet this story is getting NO mention at all..
    well we all know why…
    because like the Emperors yes men they are all going to be looking really stupid very soon.
    can’t wait for those days to arrive:-)

    Vahrenholt:

    For years, I disseminated the hypotheses of the IPCC, and I feel duped. Renewable energy is near and dear to me, and I’ve been fighting for its expansion for more than 30 years. My concern is that if citizens discover that the people who warn of a climate disaster are only telling half the truth, they will no longer be prepared TO PAY HIGHER ELECTRICITY COST for wind and solar (energy). Then the conversion of our energy supply will lack the necessary acceptance.

    All I’m saying is that CO2 is a climate gas, but that its effect is only half as strong as the IPCC claims. Nevertheless, we still have to reduce CO2 emissions through WORLDWIDE EMISSIONS TRADING. And there are also other reasons to burn fewer fossil fuels. We don’t have that much coal, oil and gas left in the world, so we have to economize more. We also have to become less dependent on imports from totalitarian countries

    This man is NO change.

    Robert said this is an interesting question:

    In “Magnetic Reversal” p. 154 the existence of giant magnetic ropes connecting earth’s upper atmosphere to the sun was confirmed by satellites. “We believe solar wind particles flow in along these ropes, providing energy for geomagnetic storms and auroras.”
    QUESTION: Is the reason for so few solar flares are aimed directly towards earth that these weakened magnetic ropes cannot conduct them.

    No lies are too big for the criminals who are using CO2 as a vehicle to rob 6 billion people. If they only manage to steal $1 per person from their obscene scam, its a lot of money.

    an author doesn’t want to hear “i passed your books on.” you should recommend them to friends, not pass them on.

  7. Jim says:

    The AGW crowd use the “Big Lie” as part of their propaganda techniques. If you repeat the big lie time after time people will regard it as being true. Fortunately people who think instead of following blindly are seeing through the lies and frauds. AGW is rapidly losing all credibility and will soon be thrown on the trash heap of history.
    I say good riddance

    Alternative, clean energy is something we should be slowly adding to our energy arsenal, because we can all use less pollution and less importing of resources that will, eventually, run out. That being said, this “forced march” to eliminate our current sources of power for the less dependable and quite expensive alternative power sources is going to ruin us all, especially in the vain and stupid attempt to reduce CO2 in the name of saving the planet. This big lie has ruined the real environmental concerns regarding actual pollution – mercury, sulphur dioxide, etc that could use some of the funding going to the CO2 lie. We are wasting time, money and energy fighting the false boogie man when there are actual clean air, land and water issues that need to be addressed worldwide. I, for one, am tired of being always told by the AGW church members that I am in favor of waste and pollution if I don’t believe in their doctrine. They are letting every other problem we have be ignored to fund their idiotic agenda – I will almost be glad to see the ice arrive, if only to get them to shut up.

    China said on Monday it was forbidding its airlines from joining a European Union carbon emissions scheme to protect the climate. The companies now face fines or may even be barred from landing at EU airports. The dispute comes as the EU is looking to China to help tackle the euro debt crisis.

    http://www.spiegel.de/international/business/0,1518,813544,00.html

    How to ruin Europe even faster. This is what you do in an economic crisis. Make yourself even less competitive. You wonder if they do this on purpose.

  10. Dale Robertson says:

    If I may, I hope Jim is right about the AGW being put on the ash heap of history… I wonder… so many media outlets are singing the song of global warming with evidence of said global warming because of the almost non-winter the continental US has enjoyed. If people are dumb enough to believe that every breath they breathe out is a pollutant… Is there any hope???
