'Germany's George Monbiot' Turns Climate Sceptic
James Delingpole, The Telegraph, February 9, 2012
When the Germans start running headlines like that in their biggest tabloid newspaper, you know that for the eco loons Der Krieg ist Verloren. It means "Global Warming stopped twelve years ago," and it's part of a serialisation being run by Bild (circulation: 4 million) of Germany's newest surprise bestseller – a climate sceptical book called Die Kalte Sonne (The Cold Sun).

What's even more surprising is this: one of the authors, Professor Fritz Vahrenholt, is a former environment minister and well-known green activist. P Gosselin at No Tricks Zone has the story:
According to the Global Warming Policy Foundation's Benny Peiser, himself a former member of the German green movement, Vahrenholt's U-turn represents a huge blow to the climate alarmist camp. (For further details read this GWPF account and also this one)
