The Belief That CO2 Can Regulate Climate Is “Sheer Absurdity” Says Prominent German Meteorologist


Klaus-Eckart Puls is a German physicist and meteorologist. He initially accepted the "science" coming from the  IPCC. But was ashamed that he made presentations without first checking it.

Here is 
Klaus-Eckart Pulsin an interview with Swiss Magazine "factum" and reported by  EIKE - the European Institute for Climate and Energy (link)

factum: Sie kritisieren seit Jahren die Theorie vom menschengemachten Klimawandel. Inzwischen melden sich viele prominente Wissenschaftler in diesem Sinn zu Wort. Wie wurden Sie zum Klimaskeptiker?

Puls: Bis vor zehn Jahren habe auch ich ungeprüft nachgeplappert, was das IPCC uns so erzählt. Irgendwann dann habe ich angefangen, die Behauptungen nachzuprüfen. Das Ergebnis: Es begann mit Zweifeln und mündete dann in Entsetzen und in der Erkenntnis, dass ganz viel von dem, was der IPCC und die Medien bezüglich des Klimawandels sagen, nicht stimmt und gar nicht durch naturwissenschaftliche Fakten und Messungen gedeckt ist. Für das, was ich früher als Naturwissenschaftler ungeprüft auch in eigenen Vorträgen "nach-erzählt“ habe, dafür schäme ich mich heute.

This was translated by Physicist Pierre Gosselin (link) on 9 May 2012.

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. 

 Read the whole piece but note Klaus-Eckart Puls' concluding sentences:

factum: So we don’t need to do anything against climate change?

Puls: There’s nothing we can do to stop it. Scientifically it is sheer absurdity to think we can get a nice climate by turning a CO2 adjustment knob. Many confuse environmental protection with climate protection. it’s impossible to protect the climate, but we can protect the environment and our drinking water. On the debate concerning alternative energies, which is sensible, it is often driven by the irrational climate debate. One has nothing to do with the other.
