Germany has yet another sceptic website, published by meteorologist Dr Wolfgang Thuene called Der Wettermann
. I’ll be keeping an eye on it and reporting on interesting posts that will undoubtedly pop up. I’ve added his site to my blogroll.

There are many sceptics in Germany. The problem is that the mainstream media and well-funded post-normal climate science establishment marginalise them. But they won’t be able to keep this up for much longer.
Dr Thuene is retired. He was a weatherman at the German Weather Service and former weatherman at ZDF television. He’s a harsh critic of the the AGW hypothesis and does not mince words.
In a post written last month
, he expresses his view on man’s attempt to control nature and climate.
[Climate] is the sum of single values that form a mean. You can calculate it as a guiding value, which is what a lot of ideologues in society are now doing. But the idea of telling nature and weather how to behave, within which boundaries it is allowed to move, between which guardrails the global temperature has to remain, is just complete madness and hubris that cannot be exceeded. The calculated global mean temperature does not create a global climate, a state that one can declare as a good to be protected. A calculated and abstract human being, using a standard height, standard weight, standard intelligence and standard life expectancy, remains only a fiction of thought, and simply cannot be a standard for the 7 billion people living on the planet. The salaries of climate economists and scientists really ought to be reduced to the “global salary”, just so that they wake up to the nonsense they are purporting.
