A1. Introduction to climate change and man’s contribution
(pp. 1-2)


The Second World War stands for the criminal madness of the German Nazi government. Less known is their responsibility for the only climatic shift from warm to cold in an otherwise constantly warming world over the last 150 years. The three war winters of 1939/40, 1940/41 and 1941/42 mark the change. The regions that had been closest to intense naval war activities, Baltic and North Sea areas, immediately experienced the coldest winter in one 100 years. For this to happen, man needed only four months since commencing the Second World War (WWII) on September 1st 1939 not only during the first but also the second and third war winter. Europe ’s winters were back in the Little Ice Age. After Japan had attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7th 1941 the naval war became a global affair lasting until August 1945. In close conformity with the naval war in European seas, and globally subsequently, a pronounced world wide cooling took place, which lasted over three decades until about the mid 1970s.

 70 years have passed and science has no idea of what had caused the extreme winter 1939/40. Even worse, there is no sign of interest in the matter although two further extreme winters, and a global cooling period of three decades followed. Even during peace time the huge shipping and fishing industry has the potential to influence the seasons and to contribute to global warming, which climatology has, to my knowledge, never investigated. Meteorology and oceanography should be dismayed that they failed to understand the climatic changes during two world wars, and for not having coordinated their research better to avoid such horrible gaps in understanding the climatic change issue from an oceanographic perspective. This fascinating book is a huge contribution to improve the knowledge of the influence of human activity on climate.

Chapter J. (Extract)

pp. 200-201


Climatology does not care! The connection between two naval wars and two climatic changes within 25 years has not yet been investigated and explained. Worse! Climate science does not know to this day that during the global warming over the last 150 years the two world wars have influenced two of the most significant climatic changes in this period. Even for meteorologists of a war generation there were no obstacles to obtain knowledge about this relationship. If they had warned governments about the threat of climate change, as their successors currently do with the "greenhouse effect", naval activities in two World Wars may have been prevented, or at least been limited. They did not, and this justifies the question: Had meteorology been too ignorant and incompetent in the first half of last century?

Book cover text

Not knowing a reason for the biggest climatic shift since industrialization, which started in winter 1939/40, rectifies to speak about the failures of meteorology. Only four months into Second World War Northern Europe experienced the coldest winter in 100 years. Reason: plain physics! Naval war in Northern European seas released summer heat too quickly. Polar air got free access to Europe . The same applies to the second and third war winter. Europe was back in a Little Ice Age. After Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7th 1941, naval war became a global affair. In close conformity with naval war in European seas, and subsequently in the Pacific, a pronounced global cooling took place, which lasted until about the mid 1970s. Furthermore, a thorough research of strong warming in the Northern Hemisphere from winter 1918/19 to winter 1939/40 would have revealed a convincing link to naval war in Europe from 1914 to 1918.


Claims to understand climate should be regarded as a failure as long as meteorology is unable to explain the two of the most pronounced climatic shifts during the last century and the role two world wars had in this game. These two events would show that oceans have a dominate role in the climate system, and man is able to change its direction by intensive activities in the marine environment. It took four months to generate  an extreme regional winter 1939/40; and subsequently a few years to contribute to global cooling lasting for three decades until the mid 1970s.


The book should alter the debate on climate change!
