At last, it only took 20 years but one of the fathers of Germany?s modern
green movement, Professor Dr. Fritz Vahrenholt, a social democrat and green
activist, decided to author a climate science skeptical book together with
geologist/paleontologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning. Vahrenholt?s skepticism
started 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?"
It's the IPCC's way, plenty of evidence in the ClimateGate emails.
"Originally announced in der Spiegel and the tabloid Bild. Germany?s
flagship weekly news magazine Der Spiegel today featured a 4-page exclusive
interview with Vahrenholt, where he repeated that the IPCC has ignored a
large part of climate science and that IPCC scientists exaggerated the
impact of CO2 on climate".
Vahrenholt decided to do some digging. His colleague Dr. Lüning also gave
him a copy of Andrew Montford?s The Hockey Stick Illusion.

Montford graduated from the University of St Andrews with a degree in
chemistry, "an *nglishman living in Scotland" More from Montford
He ( Vahrenholt) was horrified by the sloppiness and deception he found.
Persuaded by Hoffmann & Campe, he and Lüning decided to write the book.
"Die kalte Sonne" cites 800 sources and has over 80 charts and figures. It
examines and summarizes the latest science.
"The widely read Bild will follow with the rest of the series in the days
ahead. In part I today Bild presents "What the IPCC of the UN doesn?t tell
you." Bild asks "what if the IPCC is wrong? Can we really blindly trust
these experts? Are they really independent?"
Much of the credit must go to the Canadians, Steven McIntyre and his
colleague Ross McKittrick, who demolished Michael Mann's Hokey Stick, the
subject of Montford's book,
963 comments, almost exclusively favorable, unheard of!
Mcintyre - a scholar and gentleman "His patience, politeness and dilligence
are admired by those of us who look for rigor and thoroughness in science.

Probably, "not the beginning of the end but the end of the beginning".
Consensus matters far less than simply being right.
After all, in more recent times, Galileo, Darwin, Einstein and Hawking are
among those whose work broke with the consensus, yet turned out to be
