Here is an eight part discussion of Climate Change in the German Magazine Der Spiegel, translated into English.
This article looks at the current uproar over Climate Gate, from a European perspective, and talks about the future of the planet and uses places in Germany as examples.
I got this from my Middle Brother, Lance, who forwarded it in an EMail from a friend of his. My Brother thinks that I am a climate Denier, and thus am guilty of not properly discerning the signs of the times.
Actually, I am a skeptic, based upon the fact that I have not seen a lot of data on the way various rates of change in the climate will impact the planet and because of the way climate scientists have acted in a very unscientific way, playing close hold with their data and resisting those with alternative views. I guess it has been ever such—there is a prevailing scientific view and changing it is a lot of hard work. Look at the simple issue of doctors washing their hands. It took years for the prevailing wisdom to move to hand washing as the way to go. Not accepted until after the death of its strong advocate, Ignaz Semmelweis.
