Chilling news for climate sceptics

FOR the clueless or cynical diehards who deny global warming, it’s getting awfully cold out there. The latest icy blast of reality comes from an eminent scientist whom climate-change sceptics once lauded as one of their own.

Richard Muller, a respected physicist at the University of California, Berkeley, used to dismiss alarming climate research as “polluted by political and activist frenzy’’. Frustrated at what he considered shoddy science, Muller launched his own comprehensive study to set the record straight. Instead, the record set him straight.

“Global warming is real,” he wrote last week in The Wall Street Journal.

There you are … clueless and cynical die-hards! Which means of course the authour knows all the answers!
Why does he use a picture of cooling towers showing emissions of steam? I assume its meant to be a picture of CO2. I wonder if he knows the difference.
I dont know any sceptics who don’t think the earth has warmed slightly in the las 50 years.The question is how much and why.
Any 50 year period in history would show some warming or cooling trend – which would be worse warming or cooling.
Muller’s paper is simply a re analysis of flawed data- surprise, he gets similar results!
And why is Richard Muller’s paper getting this attention – it has not been through any peer- review process.
This is the real story here; Publication through the media before there is any peer review and criticism.
