News flash for "Hates Idiots"
Every month since climate gate there are more scientists openly questioning the validity of man made climate change.
Really, "Hates Idiots"? Let's have their names. I say put up or shut up. Actually, the trend is in precisely the opposite direction.
For example, former climate change denier Dr. Richard Mueller, whose research has been supported to a large degree by the conservative Koch Brothers, recently announced that he has ceased to be a skeptic and now agrees that global warming is real and is caused primarily by human activity.
CALL me a converted skeptic. 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. Im now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.

Mueller went on to provide the following summary of the findings of his research team at the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Project:
"Our results show that the average temperature of the earths land has risen by two and a half degrees Fahrenheit over the past 250 years, including an increase of one and a half degrees over the most recent 50 years. Moreover, it appears likely that essentially all of this increase results from the human emission of greenhouse gases."
It looks like the attempts of the Koch brothers and other conservative truth deniers to buy their own set of facts on global warming just blew up in their faces. Thank goodness Mueller has some integrity. I understand that 40 percent of his funding came from the Koch brothers. I doubt that he will ever receive any more of their filthy lucre again. The real cabal that has been spewing vicious lies about the state of research on global warming is the one formed by the Koch brothers, Sen. Inhofe of Oklahoma, Fox News and other deniers and perverters of the truth.
