Leading Climate Change Skeptic Changes His Mind – VIDEO

A prominent physicist who set out to prove global warming did not exist has actually done the opposite.

For the past two years, climate change skeptic Richard Muller, who is a professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley and a faculty senior scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, has chaired the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Project (BEST).

BEST data was taken from 1.6 billion temperature archived records dating back to the 1800s from 15 sources around the world.

It shows deviation from the mean temperature over two centuries – and overall global warming since the industrial revolution.

Muller and his team found that average surface temperatures around the world have been steadily rising since 1950, just what plenty of† mainstream climate scientists have been saying for decades.

However, while the researchersí results reiterate what was already largely accepted by the scientific community, knowing that the study was conducted by a previously outspoken skeptic of global warming may be the final piece of proof needed to convince other doubters.

To highlight their findings, BEST researchers put all the data into one alarming video of a warming world visualizing surface temperature records. You can watch the video here:

Duhhh! How can anyone still not believe it. The question is how soon can we do something about it. I see a small increase in electric cars and a small increase in solar production. We need to get off fossil fuels ASAP. Get the solar, wind, and geo-thermal productions moving. These industries could provide a lot of jobs that would re-employ those losing their dirty energy jobs.

Deniers don't react to facts like normal people do. Their consensus lately is shifting to "yes global warming exists, but it's still not manmade." The most important thing to a denier, whether or not they realize it, is to avoid having to admit that we have to DO something about it.
