How gullible must warmies be? I guess it’s the same reason Nigerian scams are still working, if people continue contact knowing they are communicating with Nigerian [estate lawyers, bankers...] then the scammers know they’ve got a sucker. Müller puts out a press release saying “I wuz a skeptic but now I’m better” and adoring media flock to interview this most wondrous of beasts, a skeptic wot wuz learned. Lord only knows how often Fairfax enviro-scribe Ben Cubby has been fleeced but he’s certainly in the tank for warming hysterics.
AUSTRALIA’S climate change sceptics remain defiant following the self-described ”conversion” of the prominent sceptic scientist Richard Muller, who had led a vast international research effort to debunk global warming science.
Professor Muller’s team, partly funded by US fossil fuel interests, has now made public its findings and concluded that human emissions are driving climate change at a slightly faster rate than that asserted by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
Professor Muller, a physicist at the University of California, Berkeley, said the results had prompted a ”total turnaround” in his views. ”We were not expecting this, but as scientists, it is our duty to let the evidence change our minds,” he said.
The results were obtained by re-examining more than 14 million temperature records at thousands of sites around the world, and excluding those that sceptics had believed were artificially enhancing global warming data.
Australian climate change sceptics were largely unmoved.
