Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson debunks himself — and Richard Muller.
In his column today, “The scientific finding that settles the climate-change debate,” Robinson supposes that Richard Muller’s new study has finally debunked the skeptics:
In other words, the deniers’ claims about the alleged sloppiness or fraudulence of climate science are wrong. Muller’s team, the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project, rigorously explored the specific objections raised by skeptics — and found them groundless.
But Robinson later acknowledges:
It is true that Muller made no attempt to ascertain “how much of the warming is due to humans.”
And that is the skeptics primary argument. As Muller, who never was a skeptic anyway, failed to even examine our primary argument, it remains intact.
