Der Spiegel: Scientists Denounce Dubious Climate Study: ‘German re-insurer Munich Re claims to have found proof AGW is causing more weather catastrophes in N. America. Scientists are outraged’


Der Spiegel excerpt:

Meanwhile, leading politicians repeatedly attempt to use natural disasters as evidence for man-made climate change. More intense weather extremes have become a “new reality,” European Commissioner for Climate Action Connie Hedegaard said in September. Climate change is the “new normal,” she added.

These kind of statements are likely to be welcomed by insurers, but not by scientists or the general public. A statement once made by the recently deceased Austrian climate researcher Reinhard Böhm seems appropriate: “One shouldn’t allow short-term gimmicks that enjoy a certain acceptance to bury the credibility of science.”
