Skandal: Wirtschaftsministerium will Deutschlands Wettbewerbsfähigkeit retten

Die Bundesregierung streitet über den künftigen Kurs der Energie- und Klimapolitik. Das zeigt der aus dem Bundeswirtschaftsministerium stammende Entwurf des Fortschrittsberichts zur Energiewende, der auf große Bedenken im Bundesumweltministerium stößt…

Mitarbeiter von Bundesumweltministerin Barbara Hendricks (SPD) äußern grundlegende Bedenken gegen den Entwurf der Kollegen aus dem Hause von Wirtschaftsminister Sigmar Gabriel (ebenfalls SPD). Sie fordern eine Überarbeitung der Aussagen, welche Ziele die Energiewende erreichen soll.

Ihr Vorwurf: Der Berichtsentwurf relativiere sowohl das Klimaschutzziel als auch den Ausstieg aus der Kernenergie. Diese beiden Ziele galten bisher als unantastbare Hauptziele der Energiewende. 

Der Entwurf stellt sie allerdings unter der Überschrift “Politische Ziele” nun auf eine Ebene mit den...

Lord Donoughue: Climate change and the left

Lord Donoughue is a Labour peer. He was Senior Policy Adviser to Prime Ministers Harold Wilson and James Callaghan (1974-79). He is a Trustee of the Global Warming Policy Foundation

The issue of why the political left is overwhelmingly supportive of the climate change alarmist ideology/faith, and hence there are relatively few left wing sceptics, is quite complex and would take more space and time than I intend to impose on you here. But may I, as a lifelong Labour supporter, offer a couple of broad observations. They are by no means comprehensive and omit many nuances. But they are major general factors which I have observed in the party for 61 years, and in Parliament for almost 30 years. [...]

I notice that my Labour colleagues who are troubled by the cost of the war on climate change, and especially when I point out that its costs...

Ritueller Klima-Alarm verliert an Wirkung

Sunday Telegraph: Despite the IPCC’s stark warnings, there is widespread agreement from climate change activists, sceptics and, privately, UK Government officials, that the summit in Paris is unlikely to achieve a legally-binding deal.

Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the UN IPCC, opened the Copenhagen summit by acknowledging the “seeming hopelessness of addressing climate change” but imploring policymakers to “avoid being overcome” by it. “It is not hopeless,” he said, calling on governments to make decisions “informed by the science”.

Benny Peiser, of the climate-sceptic Global Warming Policy Foundation, said the IPCC report contents would not translate to agreement on a deal in Paris. “On the science there is no real discrepancy: the governments agree we should make sure warming isn’t more than 2C. But when it...

Grünes Lieblings-Ritual:Klimakonferenz scheitert mal wieder

With a 2015 deadline looming large for a global pact on curbing climate change, six days of UN talks closed in Bonn on Saturday with delegates and observers deflated over a lack of progress.—A dispute about how to link greenhouse-gas emissions cuts to a promise from the wealthiest nations for $100 billion a year in climate aid emerged as a major stumbling block at UN talks on global warming.

EU Klima-Gipfel für Dummies

News out of Europe yesterday is that the EU has adopted an ambitious greenhouse gas emission reduction target, calling for a 40 percent reduction in GHG emissions by the year 2030. But the announcement was larded with lots of talk of “flexibility” and contains so many contradictory elements that it is clear this is not serious. My favorite condition is this one:

A 27% renewable energy target that is binding at an aggregate European level but voluntary for individual member states.

In practice what this means is: Let Germany do it. They’re dumb and rich enough to keep subsidizing this nonsense. And why not? Germany is sticking it to the rest of the Euro-zone economies with its de facto domination of the Euro currency, which is adverse to the economic interests of the poorer southern European nations. If I were a Greek, Portugese,...

Falscher Walross-Alarm

Erinnern Sie sich noch an die Sensationsmeldungen vor drei Wochen? Klimawandel in Alaska: 35.000 Walrosse auf einem Fleck

Unglaubliche und bestürzende Bilder aus dem US-Staat Alaska: Luftaufnahmen zeigen zehntausende Walrosse, die sich dicht gedrängt auf einen Strand aus Erschöpfung zurückgezogen haben. Der Grund für den Massenandrang: Der Klimawandel.

Die Medienhysterie entpuppt sich - einmal mehr - als falscher Alarm:

New Paper Refutes Walrus-Climate Scare

London, 20 October: A briefing paper published today by the Global Warming Policy Foundation refutes claims that Arctic walruses are in distress and danger due to global warming.

The paper, written by Canadian zoologist Dr Susan Crockford, assesses the recent mass haulouts of walrus females and calves on the beaches of Alaska and Russia bordering the Chukchi Sea. The...
