When facts and arguments stop convincing, then the only thing left to do is to argue at an emotional level. Climate activists have produced a website where IPCC-cozy scientists expressed their concerns in hand-written letters. One of the writers was Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). He wrote of a frightful nightmare:
Not nice, but this can happen if one calls in the fire brigade for nothing countless times. Eventually the credibility gets completely destroyed and the fire brigade prefers to just stay on alert and play cards. Panic spreaders damage the credibility of the precautionary principle.
