Subject: Resigning from GWPF
In view of the massive objections from colleagues around the world I have decided to resign from GWPF. I will make it clear that I have an open attitude to science and I can assure you that I will continue to do my utmost to protect science from any political infiltration. My original motivation to join GWPF was to foster a dialogue over the boundaries but this is not any longer possible because of the reactions from the climate community that strongly declines any such efforts. Perhaps you would be kind enough to pass on this information to your colleagues.
I will not here go into any more details what has happened in recent days, that have been rather unpleasant to say the least, but will come back at a later time. The meteorological community is apparently not any longer that open and peaceful community it was in former days. I regret this and hope one day it will change.
