    Former Climate Alarmist Announces Conversion to climate skepticism

    Klaus-Eckart Puls, physicist and meteorologist used to be an avid member of the Alarmist cult, until he did a bit of fact checking which caused his 180 degree turn on the issue.

    translated from original:

    Dafür schäme ich mich heute!

    Puls: Ten years ago I simply parroted what the IPCC told us. One day I started checking the facts and data – first I started with a sense of doubt but then I became outraged when I discovered that much of what the IPCC and the media were telling us was sheer nonsense and was not even supported by any scientific facts and measurements. To this day I still feel shame that as a scientist I made presentations of their science without first checking it. The CO2-climate hysteria in Germany is propagated by people who are in it for lots of money, attention and power.

    Indeed. And this man must have more intellectual integrity than personal financial and/or professional ambition, given such heresy puts him outside the climate mega slush industry.

    On a separate issue, does anybody else wonder what (who) is behind this sudden rash of sock puppets appearing on climate related threads?

    As a physicist, I welcome Klaus-Eckart Puls back to the world of the rational.

    I love that word "alarmist"; so descriptive and even more dismissive than "sceptic".

    "Sceptic" is a monicker I where with pride.

    "Denier" is the more insidious eptithet.

    Is this the same Klaus-Eckart Puls who's spokesperson for the AGW denial group the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE)?
