It’s official. The Delinquent Teenager is being translated into German. A hardcover German-language edition will hit bookstores in Germany later this year. Moreover, a German-language Kindle edition will be for sale worldwide.
Speaking of Germany, I was recently interviewed by Steffen Hentrich of Okowatch via e-mail. When asked how my research into the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has affected my view of climate science more generally, I responded as follows:
Numerous, profound conflicts-of-interest are inherent in the IPCC structure. Climate research is not being evaluated by neutral third parties. Rather, the people writing IPCC reports routinely pass judgment on their own research – and on that of their academic rivals. How can that be sound science?
To be a climate skeptic is to be a member of a minority that is routinely derided and ridiculed. This is especially the case in Germany. I am thrilled, therefore, to be playing a small role in the fledgling debate taking place there.
