Facts Beat Climate Skeptics

Former climate skeptic physicist Richard Muller could not deny the facts of his climate research project; he recently publicly concluded “global warming is real.” When trying to get other deniers to see the truth, you won’t need the 1.6 billion data points of Muller’s research. Instead, try using the 15 irrefutable signs climate change is real that are mentioned in this Business Insider article.

Outspoken Climate Skeptic Admits He Was Wrong About Global Warming

UC Berkeley physicist, and longtime climate skeptic, Richard Muller has finally gone on the offensive, publicly admitting he was wrong to doubt global-warming data in a piece for The Wall Street Journal.
 

The outspoken professor, who gained notoriety in the climate-denial community for his rants against Al Gore and fueling the fire on Climategate, decided to take matters into his own hands earlier this year by creating an independent study to assess specific objections raised by climate skeptics.
 
Muller and a team of researchers working under the Berkley Earth Surface Temperature Project, analyzed more than 1.6 billion data points collected from more than 39,000 temperature stations around the world to find that their results were “close to those published by prior groups,” including estimates from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
 
The evidence proved convincing, even to a habitual climate disbeliever.
 
“Global warming is real. Perhaps our results will help cool this portion of the climate debate,” Muller concluded.

One Response to “Facts Beat Climate Skeptics”

  1. Thank you so much for posting this, Celina. It has provided (via the WSJ and now here also) another method for me to try and get Dr Muller to address his previous misdemeanour with regard to the Climategate/Hockey Stick fiasco….

    Without doubt, I believe Muller should be commended for the intellectual honesty and personal integrity he has shown in pursuing this Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project to a conclusion even if that conclusion was not the one he expected. However, what I would really like to know is whether he will now publicly also admit that he was wrong to repeatedly and vociferously accuse Michael Mann and his colleagues of scientific malpractice (by appearing to deliberately misinterpret the now infamous “hide the decline” email)? The reason that I ask this question is that, if you overlay the BEST data onto the right-hand end of the MBH98 Hockey Stick you will see that it replicates (if not extends) the flat blade of stick – thus proving that ‘Climategate’ revealed no intention to deceive (as per the findings of 3 official inquiries).

    I have already asked him this question via an email to his daughter Elizabeth (and now the WSJ), and posted the visual evidence on my WordPress blog. Therefore, although I appreciate that he is very busy fending-off attacks from die-hard skeptics at the moment, I remain hopeful of a response or, at very least, a wider appreciation of the facts of history…
