Heil KlimaFuehrer Rahmstorf!
August 14, 2017
The intended audience of this article is really Germans, who suffer from Stefan Rahmstorf, but I (Dr. Duane Thresher) think Americans and the rest of the world will find it fascinating as well.
Full disclosure: Dr. Claudia Kubatzki is coauthor on several papers with Stefan Rahmstorf and was also at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) with him.
Who is Stefan Rahmstorf? Aside from a few hacks at the New York Times, their witless readers, and the climate change cabal at the American Geophysical Union not many Americans have ever heard of him … and they should be thankful for that.

“The majority of politicians, on the evidence available to us, are interested not in truth but in power and in the maintenance of that power.

What surrounds us therefore is a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed.” – Harold Pinter, Nobel Prize Lecture (Literature), 2005
