Hans Joachim Schellnhuber
Hans Joachim "John" Schellnhuber , CBE (born June 7, 1950 in Ortenburg , Passau district ) is a German climate researcher . His main areas of work are climate impact research and earth system analysis . He is one of the world's most renowned climate experts.
Until September 2018 he was director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), which he founded in 1992 and which, under his leadership, became one of the world's most respected institutes in the field of climate research. From 2009 to 2016 he was Chairman of the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU). He is a longstanding member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ( IPCC ).
Schellnhuber was one of the first to call for sustainable solutions to the climate problem and to have a decisive influence on the international political discussion. Among other things, he introduced the concept of the tilting elements to climate research and called for prompt political, economic and social measures to achieve the two-degree target , primarily through the switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources.
Schellnhuber grew up in Ortenburg in the Vilshofen district in a Protestant family. Even as a child he had the nickname "John", which family members and colleagues use to address him to this day. He attended elementary school in Ortenburg from 1956 to 1961 and then switched to the Vilshofen grammar school . According to his own statements, he had a talent for mathematics and was interested in physics, philosophy and archeology, among other things. After his older brother had already attended university, the family had no more money to enable a second child to study. However, his mother told him about the possibility of a highly gifted scholarship , which he then worked towards and graduated from high school in 1970 with a grade of 1.0.
Schellnhuber is married to the geologist , paleontologist , poet and publicist Margret Boysen, who, in addition to her journalistic work, also directs and coordinates the PIK's cultural program. He has a son born in 2008.
Schellnhuber describes himself as an agnostic .
Immediately after graduating from high school, Schellnhuber began studying physics and mathematics at the University of Regensburg . He graduated with honors in physics in 1976 and received his doctorate in theoretical physics in 1980 with summa cum laude . Solid-state physicist Gregory Wannier became aware of Schellnhuber during a research stay at the University of Regensburg . Through his mediation, Schellnhuber received a postdoc position at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California in Santa Barbara from 1981 to 1982 . Through this he got in contact with Walter Kohn , John Bardeen and John Robert Schrieffer , who worked there with him at the same time. He then worked as a research assistant at the University of Oldenburg , and completed his habilitation in 1985 . As a scholarship holder in the Heisenberg program , he received a visiting professorship at the Institute of Nonlinear Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz from 1987 to 1988 .
From 1989 to 1993 Schellnhuber held a professorship for theoretical physics at the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Sea (ICBM) at the University of Oldenburg, of which he was managing director in 1992. During this time he led a project funded by the then Federal Ministry for Research and Technology on the effects of rising sea levels on the tidal flats .
In 1992 he took over as founding director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). Under his leadership, this grew to more than 300 employees and is characterized by an interdisciplinary approach. Since 1993 he has also been a professor for theoretical physics at the University of Potsdam .
In addition to his work at PIK, Schellnhuber was professor at the Environmental School of the University of East Anglia (Great Britain) from 2001 to 2005 and was involved in the establishment of the Tyndall Center for Climate Change Research there as research director . He then worked there until 2009 as a “Distinguished Science Advisor”. From 2005 to 2009 he held a visiting professorship in physics at Oxford University , was an honorary member of Christ Church College there and was a Senior James Martin Fellow . Since 2010 he has been an external professor at the US Santa Fe Institute .
Schellnhuber has published more than 250 scientific articles and published more than 50 books or book chapters as an author, co-author or editor.
Schellnhuber did his doctorate in the field of solid-state physics on the band structure of crystal electrons in a homogeneous magnetic field . In his dissertation he was able to give the physical justification of the Peierls - Onsager hypothesis that had occupied physicists for decades.
During his time at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California at Santa Barbara , he worked on quantum mechanics . Through the contact there with Benoît Mandelbrot and Mitchell Feigenbaum , his interest shifted to non-linear dynamics ( chaos theory ), and after his return to Germany in 1984 he dealt exclusively with the analysis of complex systems . As part of his visiting professorship at the Institute of Nonlinear Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz , he dealt with nonlinear dynamics and worked with the deputy director Michael Nauenberg .
Earth system analysis
As part of his work as director of the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Sea in Oldenburg, he was commissioned to create a mathematical model of the Watt ecosystem and its fractal structure . His working group used the Kolmogorow-Arnold-Moser theorem . Through the son of James Lovelock , who was writing his master's thesis at the University of Oldenburg, he came into contact with Lovelock and his Gaia hypothesis . This inspired him to combine solid methodological knowledge with a “bird's eye view” in the sense of a “real systems analysis”. During this time his interest in ecosystems arose, and in connection with the conceptual planning of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research , he developed his concept of earth system analysis in the early 1990s , which he expanded further in the following years. He describes the earth system - unstable compared to “dead” planets like Venus or Mars - as a geosphere-biosphere complex (“ ecosphere ”), consisting of the components nature ( atmosphere , biosphere , cryosphere etc.) and humans .
In addition to its physiological - metabolic effects on the earth system - which correspond to those of animals - the human factor has a "metaphysical" subcomponent, the global subject , the z. B. through awareness , conquest / control of the environment and worldwide communication, e.g. B. on the Internet. The existence of the ozone hole showed that mankind is capable of strategically influencing the natural factor . Today mankind has the possibility of a macroscopic view of the earth system, for example through the principle of the bird's eye view , for example through the view from space on the earth through satellites , or through computer simulations . As a result, the global subject could e.g. B. determine its ecological footprint and consequently make collective 'rational decisions' at system level. One of the most responsible tasks is to choose the most sustainable from the multitude of possible coevolutions of man and nature .
His ideas were supported by Walter Kohn , Klaus Hasselmann , Bill Clark, Paul Crutzen , David King , Nicholas Stern and Diana Liverman , among others . The interest of some well-known American scientists (including John Holdren ) in his concept contributed to Schellnhuber's admission to the National Academy of Sciences .
On this basis, developed Schellnhuber and gentlemen, the concept of tolerance window (Engl. Tolerable Windows ) and the planetary guard rails (Engl. Planetary boundaries ), including the two-degree barrier ( two-degree target ) belongs.
Around 2000, Schellnhuber brought the concept of tipping elements (Engl. Tipping Elements ) in climate research one. Building on his work on nonlinear dynamics , as one of the coordinating lead authors of Working Group II, in the third assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2001), he pointed to the previously neglected possibility of discontinuous, irreversible and extreme events in connection with global warming . Until then, linear, gradual changes had been assumed. As part of a workshop in Berlin in October 2005, possible tilting elements were discussed with 36 leading experts, followed by a survey of international experts and a literature review. The working group was able to identify nine components of the earth system that are relevant to climate policy - the so-called "tipping elements" - which could be stressed beyond a critical limit (" tipping point ") by anthropogenic influences , so that it becomes abrupt, in some cases even irreversible Change would come. Only tipping elements were taken into account here at which this critical point or tipping point could be reached before the year 2100. The following scenarios are differentiated:
- Melting arctic sea ice in summer
- Melting of the Greenland ice sheet
- Melting of the West Antarctic ice sheet
- The Atlantic thermohaline circulation slows down
- Change in the El Niño-Southern Oscillation
- Collapse of the Indian summer monsoon
- Changes in the West African monsoon system with effects on the Sahara and Sahel zone (with possibly greening of the Sahara as a positive tipping element)
- Deforestation of the tropical rainforest
- Boreal forest decline
Of these nine tipping elements, according to the experts surveyed, the melting of the Arctic sea ice and the Greenland ice sheet are currently the greatest threat. The specialist article published in February 2008 was one of the most frequently cited specialist articles in the field of geosciences in 2008 and 2009. In the meantime, further possible tilting elements have been identified.
Advice to science, politics and business
Schellnhuber is a long-standing member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and was among other things the coordinating lead author of Working Group II for the third assessment report . From 2000 to 2004 Schellnhuber was chairman of the working group Global Analysis, Integration & Modeling (GAIM) of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program , which dealt with the analysis of the earth system from a biogeochemical and climatic point of view. Under Schellnhuber's direction, the focus was on the analysis of the interaction between human society and the biogeochemical earth system. In 2003 he was the German representative of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program.
Schellnhuber is also often active in advising politics and business. Since 1992 he has been one of the nine members of the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU). Since 1994 he has been either chairman or vice-chairman of this body. From 1994 to 1998 he advised Angela Merkel in her former role as Environment Minister . In 2004, he was part of a group of climate scientists invited to visit the White House to update the Bush administration on the latest findings in climate research. In 2007, during the G8 and EU Council Presidencies, Chancellor Angela Merkel appointed him Chief Scientific Advisor to the Federal Government on issues relating to climate change and international climate policy . As a member of the “Energy and Climate Change” expert group, he has been advising the President of the EU Commission , José Manuel Barroso, since 2007 . He was supported by Barroso in 2013 newly founded addition Advisory Board on Science and Technology (English. Science and Technology Advisory Council , PSTAC) appointed. On February 15, 2013, Schellnhuber was the only scientist to speak on climate change at an informal meeting of the UN Security Council . The UN Security Council had only discussed the issue of climate change twice. In preparation for the follow -up treaty to the Kyoto Protocol , which is to be negotiated at the next UN climate conference in Paris in 2015 , the EU Commission organized a conference on April 17, 2013 at the invitation of the EU Commissioner for Climate Protection , Connie Hedegaard , to provide advice the decision maker. Schellnhuber gave the opening lecture and provided information - also here as the only scientist - about the current status of climate research.
Schellnhuber also worked several times with the World Bank . He was a member of the advisory committee for the World Development Report 2010. Under his leadership, his working group at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, together with Climate Analytics, prepared the World Bank report Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4 ° C Warmer World Must be , published in November 2012 Avoided .
Schellnhuber is a founder and now chairman of the European Knowledge and Innovation Community Climate (Engl. Climate Knowledge and Innovation Community , shortly Climate KIC ). Founded in 2010 by the European Institute for Innovation and Technology , where business and research work closely together, it funds innovations for climate protection with around half a billion euros (for example companies in the field of electromobility ). He is chairman of the Scientific Commission on Climate, Energy and Environment at the Leopoldina . From 2010 to 2012 he was Chairman of the Strategy Advisory Board of the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies , and has been Deputy Chairman of this body since 2012.
He is also a member of the Advisory Committee on Climate Change Research of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change at Imperial College London , a member of the European Academies Science Advisory Council , the Committee on Scientific Planning and Review of the International Science Council , the Global Change Advisory Group for the 7th Framework Program of the EU , the Global Agenda Council on Climate Change of the World Economic Forum , the Global Energy Assessment Council (GEA) of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), the Supervisory Board of the Stockholm Environment Institute , the Climate Justice Dialogue , an initiative of the World Resources Institute and Mary Robinson Foundation , and member of the Climate Change Advisory Board of Deutsche Bank .
On December 3, 2014, Schellnhuber presented the new WBGU report on climate protection as a global citizenship movement to the Committee on the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety of the German Bundestag .
On October 21, 2016, Schellnhuber was appointed by the EU Commission to head a nine-person high-level expert group that is supposed to explore paths to decarbonisation as part of the implementation of the Paris Agreement . After three years, the group should present a final report.
Schellnhuber has been a jury member for the Voltaire Prize since 2017 .
Climate change initiatives
As early as 1995, Schellnhuber discussed that limiting global warming to less than two degrees above the pre-industrial level could prevent dangerous consequences of climate change with a certain degree of probability - this approach was later adopted by the German government in the form of the so-called two-degree target as well as the European Union and recognized as a global goal by governments worldwide under the Copenhagen Accord of 2009. He was also involved in the development of the so-called “budget approach” for greenhouse gas emissions. In order to achieve the two-degree target , the WBGU proposed a global upper limit for carbon dioxide from fossil sources (“global budget”), which should be distributed among the individual countries according to the size of the population.
Schellnhuber also attracted international attention as the initiator of the Nobel Laureate Symposium "Global Sustainability - A Nobel Cause", at which 15 Nobel Laureates (including Murray Gell-Mann , Alan Heeger , Walter Kohn , Wangari Maathai , James Mirrlees , Mario Molina) in Potsdam and John Sulston ) the so-called Potsdam Memorandum on climate stabilization, energy security and sustainable development was formulated together with experts . The second Nobel Laureate Symposium was organized in London in 2009 by the Royal Society and was under the patronage of Prince Charles . The resulting St. James's Palace Memorandum was signed by 60 Nobel Prize winners, including Paul Crutzen , the Dalai Lama , Mikhail Gorbachev , David Gross and Paul Nurse . At the third symposium in the series in 2011 in Stockholm , members of the UN Secretary-General's High Level Panel on Sustainability came to receive a memorandum which was then fed into the preparation of the Rio + 20 conference . A “great transformation” towards a carbon-free world economy was called for, which was further elaborated in the WBGU's main report 2011 World in Transition - Social Contract for a Great Transformation . In this context, Schellnhuber organized the international WBGU symposium "Towards Low-Carbon Prosperity: National Strategies and International Partnerships" in May 2012, at which Chancellor Angela Merkel gave the opening speech. The fourth Nobel Laureate Symposium took place in Hong Kong from April 22 to 25, 2015 .
Schellnhuber is one of the initiators of the Earth League , a network of leading scientists and research institutes from over ten countries founded in February 2013 that deal with planetary processes and issues of sustainability. The aim of the network is to “develop a sound knowledge base for decision-makers on the most pressing future topics”. Members include Ottmar Edenhofer , Brian Hoskins , Mario J. Molina and Nicholas Stern .
In May 2013 Schellnhuber hosted the international, interdisciplinary conference Impacts World 2013 , which aimed to “develop a new vision for climate impact research”.
Schellnhuber's working group initiated the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISI-MIP), in which interdisciplinary models on the effects of global warming are collated and compared. More than 30 research teams from 12 countries have been involved so far. The first results of the project were published in a special edition of the journal PNAS in March 2014 and were also included in the fifth assessment report of the IPCC on the effects of climate change.
Schellnhuber is a co-signer of the Potsdam Manifesto 2005 initiated by Hans-Peter Dürr , J. Daniel Dahm and Rudolf zur Lippe , which ties in with the Russell-Einstein Manifesto on the nuclear arms race .
On June 18, 2015 Schellnhuber presented together with Cardinal Peter Turkson and Metropolitan John Zizioulas in a press conference at the Vatican , the new encyclical of Pope Francis to environmental and climate protection.
Statements on climate policy
In order to achieve the two-degree target , it must be possible to limit the carbon dioxide content in the earth's atmosphere to a maximum of 450 ppm and to reach the peak of carbon dioxide emissions before 2020. These would have to be reduced to zero by 2070 and then a negative CO2 balance would have to be achieved. The key here is to renounce fossil fuels such as crude oil and coal and to switch to renewable energies . After the nuclear disaster in Fukushima , he also took an explicit position against the use of nuclear energy . Safe nuclear power plants could indeed be constructed, and even nuclear waste could theoretically be completely “defused”, but this would then no longer be economically viable. He also speaks out clearly against geoengineering in the form of influencing solar radiation ( Solar Radiation Management , SRM), as this entails incalculable risks. On the other hand, a “tolerable”, albeit costly, form of geoengineering is CO 2 sequestration , which one may not be able to do without in the long term. He also pointed out that in connection with the consequences of global warming (e.g. rise in sea levels , food and water shortages ), there could be "environmentally driven conflict constellations" that could "lead to violence or even war."
Schellnhuber calls for climate protection to become a core political issue, which he justifies with the overarching significance of climate change for many other policy areas: “You could compare the situation to a ship that has leaked on the high seas. Of course there are also problems besides this accident: the food in third class is miserable, the sailors are exploited, the band plays German hits, but when the ship goes down, all of this is irrelevant. If we can't get climate change under control, if we can't keep the ship afloat, we no longer need to think about income distribution, racism and good taste. "
Schellnhuber also repeatedly expressed himself critically with regard to the social and political reaction to the scientific findings on global warming (see also the controversy about global warming ). Among other things, he emphasized our responsibility for future generations and spoke critically of the “dictatorship of the now” and the “technology-loving comfort society.” Cool reason dictated the fight against climate change. So far, however, there has been a lack of political will. Despite the previously failed climate summit was a "capitulation" with respect to the two-degree target "premature, maybe even a bit cowardly." It is worthwhile to "fight for every tenth of a degree." Central was in the process that fossil fuels no longer subsidized are and civil society has more to speak up in the climate debate. He suggested writing the principle of sustainability in the Basic Law so that the constitutional judges can refer to it in specific disputes. In addition, from his point of view, a certain proportion of parliamentary seats should be reserved for parliamentarians who only care about the interests of future generations. Even scientists shouldn't withdraw into the ivory tower mentality. If their results play a role in the fate of entire societies, they are rather obliged to explain them to the public and to decision-makers.
He lamented a "broad campaign against the two-degree target, which is characterized by intellectual double standards and incorrect risk management". Above all, three “convenient untruths” (referring to the film An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore ) are problematic : 1) “There is no man-made global warming”; 2) “There may be climate change, but it is harmless, if not beneficial.”; 3) “There is dangerous climate change, but the fight against it has long been lost.” It is “bizarre” how, despite contrary scientific findings, “the public debate about global warming gives space to so-called climate skeptics .” He therefore called for a larger interdisciplinary Solidarity when “the system of science as such is attacked” by climate skeptics. The attacks on climate research are (according to Benjamin Barber ) "anti-enlightenment" and "carried out in the same spirit as the struggle of biblical followers of creation doctrine against the science of the origin of species developed by Darwin ."
Schellnhuber also reports on the negative experiences that climate scientists have to make due to an aggressive scene of climate change deniers. He once said: “I have a group of persistent persecutors, small but completely insane. Wherever I go, Australia, Sweden, Berlin, they demonstrate against me and abuse me. […] There are people who hold up photomontages that show me with a hangman's noose around my neck. "
At the beginning of April 2016, Schellnhuber criticized the AfD's climate-skeptical position . In particular, one does not believe that carbon dioxide really plays a decisive role in the climate system, which is a “crazy thing” that “is not harmless”. If such tendencies prevailed in Germany as the AfD in Germany or Donald Trump in the USA represent, then “there will be no more salvation for the global climate”. He can only hope and firmly believe that the majority of voters will continue on the path of reason.
In a speech at the Federal Delegates' Conference of the Greens in Berlin at the end of November 2017, Schellnhuber presented his idea of a climate passport , which was strongly applauded by the party congress delegates, to the public for the first time : everyone who has to leave their home country because of climate change should travel to one of the countries and stay there that are the main causes of climate change.
Public impact and controversy
In a ranking of the 500 most important intellectuals in German-speaking countries, compiled by Max A. Höfer on behalf of the magazine Cicero , Schellnhuber was ranked 207. According to the Frankfurter Rundschau , his numerous statements and appearances in the media led, among other things, to “resentment among some colleagues”. Hans von Storch accused him of interfering with daily politics with specific political demands. The federal government should “consider whether this type of interference is what it pays science for”.
The renewed nomination of Schellnhuber for the chairmanship of the WBGU met with opposition from the Federal Ministry of Economics under the direction of Philipp Rösler ( FDP ) in 2013 . After the end of the last term of office (February 2013), the appointment of the WBGU members was therefore pending for about two months. Spiegel Online commented on the fact that the last major WBGU report reads World in Transition - Social Contract for a Great Transformation “like Schellnhuber in its purest form”. The Süddeutsche Zeitung suspected that the proposals made in the WBGU report on a world without fossil fuels "Rösler's strategists have long been suspicious". Members of the CDU , SPD and the Greens , including Federal Environment Minister Peter Altmaier (CDU), sharply criticized the process (delaying Schellnhuber's appointment), which was described, among other things, as "bullying", at the beginning of May. A few days later the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) reported that Philipp Rösler had decided "not to follow the previous reservations of the specialist level of his company" and to "forego" an objection to Schellnhuber's appointment to the WBGU. On May 8, 2013, Schellnhuber was confirmed in his office until October 2016.
In addition, Schellnhuber was also received in the political controversy about global warming . Joachim Wille commented in the Frankfurter Rundschau that Schellnhuber is not afraid to “become popular”, which makes the “notorious ' climate skeptics '” “flush with anger”. Schellnhuber himself reported how a man held a hangman's rope at him during a lecture in Melbourne , and warned of an increasingly threatening atmosphere for climate researchers. As the FAZ writes, however, he mostly ignores attacks against himself. According to Schellnhuber, these are often expressed anonymously on the Internet or by “self-appointed experts”, and that it is only a “small sample”. The problem with this is that you (as a recipient) do not really have the opportunity to assess which criticism is profound and which is less profound. Science has "become so complicated that large parts of the population can no longer follow it". In the past, the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) has been accused of neglecting the arguments of climate skeptics. According to Spiegel Online , Schellnhuber has “nothing against professional exchange” with the climate skeptics at EIKE , “as long as their representatives adhere to the rules of scientific practice”. At Schellnhuber's invitation, several representatives from EIKE presented their arguments at a meeting in April 2011. From the perspective of the PIK researchers, this did not result in any significant new findings. However, Schellnhuber refused to sit on a political podium with EIKE representatives. This would give laypeople the impression that “experts are arguing on an equal footing”.
Awards and memberships
After graduating from high school in 1970, which he graduated with a grade of 1.0, Schellnhuber received a highly gifted scholarship from the Free State of Bavaria . After his habilitation, he received a Heisenberg grant from the German Research Foundation , under which he was visiting professor at the Institute of Nonlinear Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz from 1987 to 1988 .

In the same year Schellnhuber was accepted into the National Academy of Sciences because of his work on Earth system analysis .
In 2007 he received the German Environment Prize for his scientific and political contributions to solving the climate problem . For his contributions to the national and international discussion on climate change, Schellnhuber was awarded the Order of Merit of the State of Brandenburg in 2008 by Prime Minister Matthias Platzeck . In addition, he received the BAUM environmental award for his “comprehensive commitment to research into all aspects of climate change and for having anchored the importance of global environmental changes in the public and political consciousness”. Since he made the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), which he founded, into a leading international center in the research field of Earth system analysis, he was appointed Science Ambassador for the State of Brandenburg in 2009 .
Due to his contributions to the national and international "change in awareness in climate policy" and his "active and important role in science-based policy advice and knowledge transfer to the public", he was awarded the Federal Cross of Merit 1st class by Federal President Christian Wulff in 2011 . He was awarded the 2011 Volvo Environment Prize for his exceptional global role model in the intellectual and conceptual development of Earth System Science . In the same year he received an honorary doctorate from the University of Copenhagen and the following year an honorary doctorate from the Technical University of Berlin . Schellnhuber has been a member of the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina since 2007 . He is also an "External Scientific Member" at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology and a member of the Leibniz Society of Sciences in Berlin , the Geological Society of London , the international research company Sigma Xi and the Academia Europaea .
