Ex-sceptic gets paid off to join the climate fraud to aid the World Government

Ex-sceptic says climate change is down to humans

The results confirm the warming trend seen by other groups using different methods

A formerly sceptical climate scientist says human activity is causing the Earth to warm, as a new study confirms earlier results on rising temperatures.

In a US newspaper opinion piece, Prof Richard Muller says: “Call me a converted sceptic.”

Muller leads the Berkeley Earth Project, which is using new methods and some new data to investigate the claims made by other climate researchers.

Their latest study confirms the warming trend seen by other groups.

The project received funds from sources that back organisations lobbying against action on climate change.

Their latest study, released early on Monday (GMT), concludes that the average temperature of the Earth’s land has risen by 1.5C (2.7F) over the past 250 years.

The team argues that the good correspondence between the new temperature record and historical data on CO2 emissions suggests human activity is “the most straightforward explanation” for the warming.

The paper reiterates the finding that the land surface temperature has risen 0.9C just in the last 50 years.

In a piece authored for the New York Times, Prof Muller, from the University of California, Berkeley, said: “Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming.

“Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.”

When establishing the project, Prof Muller had been concerned by claims that established teams of climate researchers had not been entirely open with their data.

He gathered a team of 10 scientists, mostly physicists, including such luminaries as Saul Perlmutter, winner of this year’s Nobel Physics Prize for research showing the Universe’s expansion is accelerating.

Funding came from a number of sources, including charitable foundations maintained by the Koch brothers, billionaire US industrialists who have also donated large sums to organisations lobbying against acceptance of man-made global warming.

However, one collaborator on the previous tranche of Berkeley Earth project papers, Judith Curry of the Georgia Institute of Technology, declined to be included as an author on the latest one.

Commenting on the paper, Prof Curry said: “Their latest paper on the 250-year record concludes that the best explanation for the observed warming is greenhouse gas emissions. Their analysis is way oversimplistic and not at all convincing in my opinion.”

She also told the New York Times: “I was invited to be a co-author on the new paper. I declined. I gave them my review of the paper, which was highly critical. I don’t think this new paper adds anything to our understanding of attribution of the warming.”

Prof Michael Mann, director of the Earth Science System Center at Penn State University, said that there was “a certain ironic satisfaction” in seeing a study funded by the Koch Brothers “demonstrate what scientists have known with some degree of confidence for nearly two decades: that the globe is indeed warming, and that this warming can only be explained by human-caused increases in greenhouse gas concentrations”.

Prof Muller, meanwhile, describes his own change in standpoint as “a total turnaround”.

He explained: “These findings are stronger than those of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [IPCC], the United Nations group that defines the scientific and diplomatic consensus on global warming.”

The University of California physics professor added: “I hope that the Berkeley Earth analysis will help settle the scientific debate regarding global warming and its human causes.

“Then comes the difficult part: agreeing across the political and diplomatic spectrum about what can and should be done.”

One comment

  • The Earth naturally warms up and cools down on its own without anything to do with man. Its a natural set of cycles the Earth uses to balance itself and to cleanse in accordance with celestrial events and the Sun. The warming seas are not through mere man but they are through the mass of underwater volcanic activity occurring right now. Do you honestly believe mere man could do such a thing to this massive Earth and a body of water that covers 90% of the planet? Wake up and live in the real World.

    Right now the Earth is cooling and has been since 1993. This is why the winters around the World are getting stronger and harsher and will continue for at least the next fifty or maybe even seventy-five years as we have a solar minimum event. This is proven! This was also pointed out by ex-Office of Naval Intelligence agent William Cooper many years ago about the coming Ice-Age.

    The freaky weather you are seeing and false heat is being created by weather manipulation on a grand scale by the U.S. Navy and U.S Air Force with the aid now of some commercial aircraft and all through both military and civilian versions of the ‘Open Skies Treaty.’ Do not be fooled by this climate fraud being pushed by agents in conjunction with sheep-dipped Jesuit Ottmar Edenhofer SJ. They need a global false-threat to usher in their false era of peace as highlighted in the Iron Mountain Report about World Government. This will also serve as the aid to the one-World Religion which is pagan Gaia based. Its all Tavistock Insitute for Human Relations brainwashing.

    This guy has been bought off or was always under the thumb and paid to pretend to be a skeptic then to suddenly change in order to try to discredit the truth of whats really going on. He’s just another guy who craves debt-instruments from The Worshipful Company of Mercers the pirates of the Livery.
