GOP, Koch Brothers Sucker Punched By Their Own Global Warming Expert

The Koch brothers paid Dr. Muller to prove Climate Change was a hoax. It looks like the joke is on them instead…

The Koch brothers must not be happy campers. Last week, at a climate science hearing in the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, conservatives trotted out several experts. They were supposed to explain why climate change isn’t real. These “experts” included a lawyer, a marketing professor, and an economist. Also among this motley crew was Dr. Richard Muller. Muller is a minor celebrity among the Right. He’s been insisting that everyone else’s data on global warming was biased and flawed. His proof? The now-debunked “Climategate” emails.

It must have been an extremely unpleasant meeting for the assembled Republicans, corporate whores and others invested in obscuring the reality of climate change. It certainly was for the Koch brothers since it was their study. Dr. Miller matched his own research against that of the top three organizations that are routinely cited by the “alarmists.” This was the result:


You’ll note that his research (the black line) is almost indistinguishable.

This is not what the Koch brothers had in mind

And just to make to make it clear to the Koch brothers and their sycophants, Dr. Muller went on to say:

“We see a global warming trend that is very similar to that previously reported by the other groups.

The world temperature data has sufficient integrity to be used to determine global temperature trends.”

He went on to rub salt in the wound:

“Based on our initial work at Berkeley Earth, I believe that some of the most worrisome biases are less of a problem than I had previously thought.”

Unfortunately for the good doctor, I’m sure he’s about to find that his Koch brother funding (which paid for roughly 25% of his research) is about to disappear quicker than the Arctic ice pack.
