Leading German magazine SPIEGEL Online has conducted a representative survey about climate change. The (not so surprising) result is that now only a minority (42%) are afraid of the climate change, compared to 62% in fall 2006.
The same article mentions that the respected German Leibniz research community demands the step-down of IPCC”s Rajendra Pachauri. Leibniz president Ernst Rietschel sees climate research “in a difficult situation” in the light of the recent errors and mistakes of the IPCC. Rietschel says:
Rajendra Pachauri should take the responsibility for this and step down.
