Ex-climate change skeptic: Humans cause global warming

An interesting editorial in the New York Times by Richard Muller, a well-known former global warming skeptic, who even had his research partly funded by the Charles Koch Charitable Foundation (they are climate change skeptics).

He now says,

“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.”

Ex-climate change skeptic: Humans cause global warming — 1 Comment

  1. Koch is a familiar name in Wichita, Kansas, and is connected to the Oil and Chemical Industries.

    After reading abut the research supported by Richard Muller and his daughter, I have decided that:

    The End of Nature by Bill McKibben (with a new introduction by the Author) is well worth another read.
