    German Climate Adviser: 'Industrialized Nations Are Facing CO2 Insolvency' - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International

    ABOUT HANS JOACHIM SCHELLNHUBER


    DBUPhysicist Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, 59, is a world famous physicist and climate researcher. After working in Germany and California, he was appointed founding director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in 1991, which he still leads today. He is also a professor of theoretical physics at the University of Potsdam and a visiting professor at Oxford University.

    Publicly, Schellnhuber has been associated with the issue of climate change and its effects. He is a member of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the 2007 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. Since 1992, he has been one of nine members of the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU). In 2006 Chancellor Angela Merkel and Lars Göran Josefsson, the CEO of European energy utility Vattenfall, appointed Schellnhuber to his current post as the federal government's top advisor on climate protection.

    Schellnhuber has published more than 210 professional articles and more than 40 books on solid-state physics, the dynamics of complex systems, climate impact, geological system analysis and sustainability. In 2004, Queen Elizabeth II awarded him the title "Commander of the Order of the British Empire" (CBE) for his work.

    Yes he is certainly a very accomplished scientist(but that doesn't negate the fact that with this proposal he's gone off the deep end). And what sort of life do you think you'll have with one quarter the amount of energy and food you currently use?
