It’s weird that every country is heating up twice as fast as all the other countries?
We have not abandoned our standard of living and turned over our wealth to our moonbat rulers with sufficient alacrity. Consequently, global warming has gotten so bad that it is even worse everywhere than it is everywhere else:
Normally a picture is worth a thousand words. This picture is worth one: hoax.
Based on the following interview, the climate researcher Lennart Bengtsson doesn’t have much of a future in climate science — at least not the part of it paid for by government grants and funding from activist NGOs.

Climate researchers recommend more education for panicked eco-activists: There is no climate crisis
In an interview with Die Welt, the renowned climate researcher Lennart Bengtsson shows little understanding for climate apocalypticists — and recommends more education for them. The Swede stated that knowledge is the best remedy against fear of climate change. After all, there is no such thing as a climate catastrophe. He even considers the measures taken by the European Union to be dangerous.
The researcher assumes that the temperature will rise by another degree or two this century. Bengtsson is of the opinion that greenhouse gases should be reduced worldwide through long-term and systematic measures. However, he does not want to describe the warming as a crisis. Far fewer people die in extreme weather than in the past, even though the population is growing rapidly. Food production is also increasing.
EU measures are a threat to business and citizens
What the media wants to sell as the catastrophic consequences of dangerous climate change (remember the warning about heat death at 30 degrees [C, 86° F] at this point) is therefore simply wrong: in reality more people die from cold than from heat — and for Europe it can happen, according to Bengtsson, and the coming winters will be serious precisely because people cannot afford to heat their homes.
He feels that the Paris goals are too ambitious, especially for the EU: In his opinion, they must be adapted to what is technically feasible — otherwise there will be serious and acute problems for business, industry and the public. A selective reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is useless anyway — the reduction would have to happen worldwide. He rules out “social developments” due to climate change: What is currently happening in society is based on political incompetence, conflicts and wars.
Lots of open questions
He questions the claimed effect of global warming on weather catastrophes — warming will actually lead to a weakening of extreme weather events such as extratropical storms.
The consensus of the controversial climate council is generally not as comprehensive as is often claimed: there are differences of opinion about how fast global warming is happening and how harmful it may be. In order to prove the influence of humans on the climate, the natural variability would have to be known — but this is only insufficiently understood and there are still open questions (he mentions the warming from 1910 to 1940 and the Little Ice Age from 1350 to 1850; climate fluctuations on time scales from 100 to several hundred years would also not be understood and not properly reproduced by the current models).
Warming is positive!
Bengtsson even sees very clear advantages in warming: For example, an ice-free Arctic Ocean would enable more fishing, facilitate sea transport and improve living conditions in Canada, Scandinavia and Russia, for example, through better conditions for agriculture and forestry. Bengtsson elaborates:
