Shock! “Skeptic” Turns Global Warmist

It’s like Christmas come early for spoiled children.  The media is going gaga over research by University of California-Berkeley Professor Richard Muller—formerly a global warming “skeptic”—supposedly illustrating a rise in global temperature.

According to Muller and his team at the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project (BEST), the earth’s climate has warmed well over a full degree (Fahrenheit) since 1950.  In response, the Washington Post says Muller’s study has “settled the climate change debate.”

Debate?  Wasn’t it Al Gore who stood before Congress in 2007 to declare that “the science is settled” when it comes to global warming?  Heck, as chairman of President Bill Clinton’s Sustainable Development Council back in 1995, Gore stated that global warming was a fact and would not be debated.

I’ll share the inconvenient truth regarding temperature in just a moment, but it must be noted that a BEST team member claims the professor is attmepting to mislead the public.  Dr. Judith Curry, who chairs the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology, told the Daily Mail “there is no scientific basis for saying that warming hasn’t stopped. To say that there is detracts from…credibility, which is very unfortunate.”

Digging into the BEST data, one can see what Curry is referring to: global warming has been on ice for over a decade.

What we have is a case of the media not doing its job of properly investigating a story.  I think we also may have a Berkeley professor who was hoping get the rock star treatment at the upcoming United Nation’s climate change summit in Durban, South Africa.

As for the recent history of global temperature swings, here are the facts:

-Between 1850 and 1940, temperatures increased 1°F (.6°C).

-From 1940 to 1970, the earth cooled about .2°F (.1°C).

-A minor warming of a mere .34°F (.2°C) occurred between 1970 and 1998,  as verified by  NASA-affiliated scientists Dr. Roy Spencer and Dr. John Christy, at the University of Alabama’s Earth System Science Center.

-Average global temperatures have not warmed since 1998, and since 2008 have been on a slight downward trend.

-A compilation of all temperature records indicates a warming since the mid-19th century of .7°C.

By the way, isn’t it interesting that when another University of California professor came out last year and said global warming was a “scam” the media totally ignored it.  Here’s a link to Professor Emeritus Hal Lewis’s statement.

    Not so fast! During the years Al Gore was “trimming” the federal government one of the projects that crossed his desk was a program that measures surface temperatures by monitoring surface weather stations. These stations had originally been located in areas far from the influence of man, but the result of urban sprawl is that many of these stations are now on rooftops, in parking lots, and on street corners sucking up car exhaust. Many of them are on property owned by businesses and cannot be accessed until later in the morning. They are now being read later than they were traditionally being read decades ago. So sure, using these stations as criteria it has been proven that it’s now hotter on an asphalt rooftop at 9 am now than it once was in the middle of an open field at 6 am.

    Enter Al Gore, the VP assigned with the task of trimming the size of the federal budget. It has been scientifically demonstrated that the vast majority of surface stations Gore eliminated were not these compromised ones above, but rather the ones that still remain in rural settings; the ones that were not yielding data consistent with Gore’s plan to become a billionaire.

    More recently it was discovered that NASA has a curious habit of revising the formulas used in handling raw weather data. Each revision increases the final results slightly. When NASA declared 1998 a hotter year than 1934, bloggers recalculated 1934 using the formulas used for 1998, forcing NASA to retract that claim.

  2. Brian,

    I am glad you are busting the doors on these so-called “scientists” with their “research” and “findings”. Just as I explain to people – look outside, you can see really far so the Earth is flat (disk shaped) the CIA is also controlling the weather. I walked outside and it was cold this morning – obviously the Earth is not warming or it would have been warm outside.

    need to fix the link to Professor Emeritus Hal Lewis’s statement.
