by Einar Du Rietz The party season has started. In about a month, Rio will be crowded by politicians and hooligans for the mega environmental gathering, but allready next week, good old Hotel Maritim in Bonn will fill up with the usual bunch for yet another climate conference. Nothing wrong with Bonn, or Maritim for [...]
by Einar Du Rietz The heroic boy scouts collected money, went to a village in deepest Africa and helped develop a well. A few month later, excessive use had dried it up and the final result was an extension of the desert. Examples of unintended consequences (and sometimes plain stupidity) in development aid are numerous, some [...]
by Einar Du Rietz During my years in the climate debate, I’ve been called all sorts of things. Climate Hater, Weather Denier, to mention a few. Apparently all climate realists are now also “Anti-Science”, and according to Robin McKie, writing for the Observer, though this article was found in our fanzine The Guardian, people are getting [...]
by Einar Du Rietz Wiser from the Copenhagen hysteria, all sides – except President Zuma, who is forced to show some enthusiasm, and in a way The Holy Father, who wants a “credible” outcome (nothing wrong with credibility) - seem to agree that COP17 in Durban wont accomplish anything. As for me, I’m content with that, but [...]
by Einar Du Rietz All the players are gearing up for the Durban festivities in a month. Though only accounting for about 11 percent of the worlds carbon emissions, the European Union, not surprisingly wants to play a major role. Euractiv gives an update: “Environment ministers of the European Union – responsible for only 11% [...]
Blatant censorship of dissenting scientific opinions on the subject of climate change and its causes is the post-modern trend. After recent attempts to ban the scientifically undesirable paper by renown scientists Spencer & Braswell and the ban of the climate-critical conference at the Belgian Society of European Engineers and Industrialists (SEII) by IPCC Vice Chair [...]

UN Climate Change Conference, Bonn, Germany, June 2011 – An Update from Holger Thuss It doesn’t help that the view is awesome or that the food is great, and that you are surrounded by great historic monuments, if you attend a 2-week-mega-meeting, and nothing happens. That is just boring. And that is in fact what [...]
CFACT-presentation at the UN Climate Change Conference, Bonn, Germany, June 11, 2011 A picture tells more than a thousand words, people say. And if you have something to say affecting scientific or political debates, a movie is even better. Thus, the European CFACT team believed it is a good idea to invite delegates, observers and [...]

Bonn, Germany, June 2011 The view is awesome, the food is great, the historic monuments are impressing, but the delegates are bored – in other words: we are in Bonn, Germany, where 3500 delegates meet for just another UN Climate Change Conference. The meeting is the second in a row of meetings leading to the [...]
The UN climate conference in Bonn opens today and CFACT has partnered with EIKE to send a delegation led by Dr. Holger Thuss. The UNFCCC is banking on these subsidiary conferences to set the stage for major agreements in Durban South Africa in December. The global warming scare and the inept and corrupt nature of [...]
by Einar Du Rietz It’s strange. Once again, a UNFCC conference coincides with a natural catastrophe. As usual, the delegates and the NGO are lining up for another preparatory meeting in Bonn. If they can, that is, as another volcano erupted on Iceland and – though it seems calm today – disrupts flight to, in [...]
CFACT recently created a live video conference which linked our climate conference in Berlin to the UN conference in Cancun and Professor Roy Spencer in Huntsville, Alabama. Lord Christopher Monckton and CFACT Executive Director Craig Rucker reported from Cancun. Participants in the Berlin conference, which CFACT co-sponsored with EIKE and other groups, have since described [...]
