Achtung! Germans Giving Up on Global Warming

Germans citizens are rapidly losing faith in global warming following the Climate-gate scandals, according to a new report in Der Spiegel (http://www.spiegel.de/).

The report indicates that just 42 percent of Germans are worried about global warming, down substantially from the 62 percent that expressed concern with the state of the environment in 2006.

German news site The Local (http://www.thelocal.de/sci-tech/20100327-26163.html) analyzed the results from the poll, conducted by polling company Infratest for the German newsmagazine.

Many people have little faith in the information and prognosis of climate researchers, The Local explained, with a third questioned in the survey not giving them much credence.

This is thought to be largely due to mistakes and exaggerations recently discovered in a report of the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said the site.

Following the leak of numerous e-mails from a top climate-science facility, a seemingly endless catalog of mistakes, misstatements, and faulty assumptions by scientists working on the IPCC's report has been detailed in the past few months, all lumped under the Climate-gate umbrella.


According to The Local, Germany’s Leibniz Community, an umbrella organization including many climate research institutes, broke ranks by calling for the resignation of IPCC head Rajendra Pachauri.

Climate research has been put, “in a difficult situation,” said Ernst Rietschel president of the Leibniz Community. He said sceptics have been given an easy target by the IPCC and said Pachauri should take on the responsibility and resign.

Doesn't matter... the argument is over. The facts are in: man-made global warming will kill us all real soon if we don't take drastic measures to fund new research!

Al Gore told us. Damn us all for not listening sooner!
