Climate Change Skeptic Does A 180 On Global Warming Doubts

by Editor

Infamous global warming skeptic Professor Richard Muller has had a complete change of mind when it comes to man made global warming.

In the latest research  conducted by The Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Project, the findings have melted the Professors previous beliefs.

It goes to show that just because you believe in something, doesn’t make it real!

Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming.

The Californian Professor Muller said.

The Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project was launched by physics professor Richard Muller, a longtime critic of government-led climate studies, to address what he called “the legitimate concerns” of skeptics who believe that global warming is exaggerated.

But Muller unexpectedly told a congressional hearing last week that the work of the three principal groups that have analyzed the temperature trends underlying climate science is “excellent…. We see a global warming trend that is very similar to that previously reported by the other groups.”

The hearing was called by GOP leaders of the House Science & Technology committee, who have expressed doubts about the integrity of climate science. It was one of several inquiries in recent weeks as the Environmental Protection Agency’s efforts to curb planet-heating emissions from industrial plants and motor vehicles have come under strenuous attack in Congress.

Muller said his group was surprised by its findings, but he cautioned that the initial assessment is based on only 2% of the 1.6 billion measurements that will eventually be examined.

The Berkeley project’s biggest private backer, at $150,000, is the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation. Oil billionaires Charles and David Koch are the nation’s most prominent funders of efforts to prevent curbs on the burning of fossil fuels, the largest contributor to planet-warming greenhouse gases.

As we see more skeptics starting to accept climate change as a man made dilemma, the move towards greener energy still remains stagnant. The U.S. has already commissioned further gas and oil exploration in a bid to regain self sufficiency for energy production.

As the world moves closer to peak oil production and the  globe continues to warm, isn’t it time to start developing greener energy?

What kind of world are we leaving for future generations to inherit?
