Re: News: Global warming is due to humans: US ex-skeptic (Update)
Richard Muller announced in October last year that as a result of his research no one should be a sceptic, at least not any longer.
A member of his team, Judith Curry said this was not the case, and accused him, with good reason, of concealing from the public the fact that his research showed that global warming had stopped 15 years ago.
There is only one of him, but he has now for the second time presented himself as a “converted sceptic”. His credentials as a sceptic were non existent anyway.
He published a book four years ago, which expressed little to question the AGW scam, “Physics for Presidents”
In a paper written in December 2003, Richard says:
“My own reading of the literature and study of paleoclimate suggests strongly that carbon dioxide from burning of fossil fuels will prove to be the greatest pollutant of human history. It is likely to have severe and detrimental effects on global climate. I would love to believe that the results of Mann et al. are correct, and that the last few years have been the warmest in a millennium.”
Hardly an appropriate remark for a sceptic.
Even if he had been a sceptic, how many times can he have headlines for converting to an AGW backer? This is his second time.
Admittedly, with all the traffic the other way, with AGW backers switching regularly to proclaim themselves reality backers, it must be urgent to make the most of any threadbare support available to the scam, even when it is untrue. Fifteen years of increasing CO2 in the atmosphere, and no warming, makes it difficult to hold thoughtful people to the faith.
“Some of the preeminent scientists involved in promoting global-warming alarmism have been disgraced and discredited, after being caught in flagrante in unethical and illegal activities. Even before the 2009 "Climategate" e-mail scandal, many leading scientists who had earlier been true believers in man-made global warming (anthropogenic global warming, or AGW) had begun jumping ship and joining the AGW skeptic side. Since then, the defections have turned into a veritable flood, making this one of the great untold stories of the major establishment media, which continue to trumpet the alarmist propaganda.”
