Esteemed German Climatologist Blasts Global Warming As ‘Clever Propaganda’ Tool

Retired German climatologist Dr. Werner Kirstein recently spoke on the topic of climate change before a packed audience at the 14th Anti-Censorship Conference (AZK) last November, blasting the politicization of climate science and taking issue on how data are (mis)handled and deceitfully presented to the public.

“Politicogenic warming”

During the presentation Kirstein comes down extremely hard on the media, claiming that German flagship news media and politicians offer the public only propaganda on certain issues. Thus in Kirstein’s view climate change has little to do with mankind (anthropogenic) but mostly is what he calls “deleted” because the science has been seriously compromised by politics, power-hungry bureaucrats and politically motivated organizations, such as the WMO, IPCC  and The World Bank.

“Sad, but that’s how it works”

Kirstein also claims that universities have been corrupted in that government funding flows only if a researchers show there is a connection between something and CO2-induced warming, no matter how absurd the subject. “It all comes down to funding,” Kirstein notes. “It’s sad, but that’s how it works.”

Climate science is totally politicized.”

Kirstein also reminds that there are many scientists who have been very critical of climate science and that the media in Germany supplies only half-truths on the subject, and is thus providing audiences “pure propaganda“.

Hockey stick a propaganda tool

Michael ‘Hockey Stick’ Mann

The retired professor shows that climate change has been normal throughout the Earth’s history and that we’ve seen even warmer periods during our current Holocene. He characterizes Prof. Michael E. Mann’s hockey stick chart as a propaganda tool. Kirstein also feels that the climate models are faulty and unreliable and that they have been manipulated to make CO2 appear as the driving climate driver.

History, he says, shows there is no correlation between CO2 and global temperature and that statements claiming otherwise are “bogus correlations”.

Even a quadrupling would benefit…

Kirstein then asserts that atmospheric CO2 concentrations have a long way to go before there would be a risk of trouble, noting that especially C3 plants would benefit immensely from a quadrupling the atmospheric CO2 concentration.

Fear and fraud

Kirstein also believes that climate scientists are irresponsibly using climate science to spread fear and panic among the population, and says that Potsdam Institute Director Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber “ought to be happy he does not reside in Switzerland” because there falsely spreading fear among the public is punishable with up to 3 years in prison.

Media, scientists propagating fear

The long outspoken German professor also characterizes the notion of “climate protection” as a superstition, a concept that makes no sense. He showed the packed audience a variety of ways of how alarmist scientists and media have used a variety of bogus claims to propagate fear among the public, such as those relating to glacier retreat, polar bear population, unexpected heavy snowfalls, polar sea ice, cold winters, desertification and sea level rise.

Smear, and then run from factual discussion

The politicization has gotten so bad that Kirstein is saddened to say that today “belief in the true nature of climate variability is labeled as conspiracy theory or populism – a killer argument that allows the retreat from every factual discussion.”

Kirstein summarizes:

You don’t have to be a climatologist to reveal that manmade climate change is in fact presented as a political ideology that uses the aid of clever media propaganda.”

Delightfully, Kirstein was applauded throughout the presentation, indicating that the audience is on to the scam of catastrophic “anthropogenic” global warming.

  • Frankly i would like to see Micheal Mann getting stranded in the snow in his home and hit on the head with his Hockey Stick

  • In an 1886 book called Creator And Cosmos, the author, Robert Shaw, said that the heating of the and the cooling of temperatures was cyclic in nature. About every two to five hundred the temperatures changed. Even back in 1886 he was able to predict accurately the next rise in temperatures, He said that the heating would start after the second half of the twentieth century and it did.

  • AL GORE is just a CLIMATE WHORE. Using politics to steal much more; from US government & bank it offshore. Arrest the felonious fellator

  • Kirstein is neither esteemed nor a climatologist. I would be very surprised if you had to honesty to inform your readers of this, since you also desperately wish to conceal the fact that he is wrong.

  • The "climate change" ideology has replaced the original mantra of "global warming" ever since that got debunked. It's all part of programming the public by the globalists to cause us to allow them to impose more and more public control and extortion of our funds, ultimately allowing them to control all the resources and make us their slaves. I so appreciate scientists speaking out and telling the truth, though they put themselves in danger doing so.
