One of the main features at this year’s Swiss Climate and Energy Summit (Bern Switzerland, 12-14 September) was a debate between IPCC leading climate scientist Prof. Thomas Stocker and renewable energy expert and chemist Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt.
Needless to say the atmosphere was electrified, with an audience of almost 400. Unfortunately there still is no video of this debate, but the online Berner Zeitung daily (BZ) of Bern wrote up a report, and yes, they too had to concede that skeptic Vahrenholt won the debate.
The BZ called Vahrenholt “rhetorically tough” and wrote he needed “only 10 seconds to warm up his argumentation machinery”.
This is wunderbar! But there is something even better that happened today. And that is the autumnal equinox, which marks the official end of summer. A summer which was predicted to have an Arctic that was “nearly ice free” see here: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2007/12/071212-AP-arctic-melt.html
I humbley remind everyone that I have railed against this prediction for years, and I am totally vindicated by the fact that I was right. See a discussion of this global warming shattered prediction here: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/09/22/open-thread-weekend-13/
