Caught with His Pants Down, Blowing Hot Air!

It looks like Professor Richard Muller, of Berkeley University in California who is a proponent of man made global climate change may be one of the biggest contributors to filling the Earth's atmosphere with hot gases. 

After completing and misrepresenting a climatology study, his co-researcher  Prof Judith Curry made it known Prof Muller was indeed blowing hot air!  What a bunch of fucking assholes!

It was hailed as the scientific study that ended the global warming debate once and for all the research that, in the words of its director, proved you should not be a sceptic, at least not any longer.

Professor Richard Muller, of Berkeley University in California, and his colleagues from the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperatures project team (BEST) claimed to have shown that the planet has warmed by almost a degree  centigrade since 1950 and is warming continually. 

Published last week ahead of a major United Nations climate summit in Durban, South Africa, next month, their work was cited around the world as irrefutable evidence that only the most stringent measures to reduce carbon dioxide emissions can save civilisation as we know it.

It was cited uncritically by, among others, reporters and commentators from the BBC, The Independent, The Guardian, The Economist and numerous media outlets in America.

The Washington Post said the BEST study had settled the climate change debate and showed that anyone who remained a sceptic was committing a cynical fraud

But today The Mail on Sunday can reveal that a leading member of Prof Mullers team has accused him of  trying to mislead the public by hiding the fact that BESTs research shows global warming has stopped.

Prof Judith Curry, who chairs the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Americas prestigious Georgia Institute of Technology, said that Prof Mullers claim that he has proven global warming sceptics wrong was also a huge mistake, with no  scientific basis.

Prof Curry is a distinguished climate researcher with more than 30 years experience and the second named co-author of the BEST projects four research papers.

Her comments, in an exclusive interview with The Mail on Sunday, seem certain to ignite a furious academic row. She said this affair had to be compared to the notorious Climategate scandal two years ago.
