In 1.4 billion years, the stellar luminosity of Sol will have increased to the point that no liquid water will remain on Earth. Earth will be a dead rock, apart from possibly xerophile bacteria below the surface.

Somebody’s bank account is getting low. Hey Doc, how about doing your own research for a change? Call Burt Rutan, he is retired now and can give you a few quick insights.

Nepotistic (partnered with daughter to do BEST investigation) Muller has been unmasked as a pseudo-skeptic returning to his watermelon roots (he participated in the Free Speech movement at Berkeley).

"October 7, 2008, Grist interview of Richard A. Muller:

(Q: ) Do you consider yourself an environmentalist?

(A:) Oh yes. [Laughs.] In fact, back in the early ’80s, I resigned from the Sierra Club over the issue of global warming. At that time, they were opposing nuclear power. What I wrote them in my letter of resignation was that, if you oppose nuclear power, the U.S. will become much more heavily dependent on fossil fuels, and that this is a pollutant to the atmosphere that is very likely to lead to global warming."

Among other relatively recent pronouncement showing less than a skeptical belief.

This is a bogus conversion, according to a Powerline article.

Muller in 2008: “The bottom line is that there is a consensus — the [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] — and the president needs to know what the IPCC says. Second, they say that most of the warming of the last 50 years is probably due to humans. You need to know that this is from carbon dioxide, and you need to understand which technologies can reduce this and which can’t.”

Muller went from believing in AGW to believing AGW is an eminent threat. That's no conversion.

His opinion changed or facts to back it up have been published?

But he also said he found it troubling that Muller claimed such definitive results without his work undergoing peer-review

Wasn't this the main problem with the original mankind-is-killing-the-planet theory?

There’s a reason why he “reversed course”...

Follow the money?

Muller was always on-board with the global swarming grifters. Far more interesting is Lovelock's recant:

"[Three] months ago, James Lovelock, the godfather of global warming, gave a startling interview to msnbc.com in which he acknowledged he had been unduly “alarmist” about climate change. The implications were extraordinary.

Lovelock is a world-renowned scientist and environmentalist whose Gaia Theory — that the Earth operates as a single, living organism — has had a profound impact on the development of global warming theory.

Having observed that global temperatures since the turn of the millennium have not gone up in the way computer-based climate models predicted, Lovelock acknowledged, “the problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago.” Now, Lovelock has given a follow-up interview to the UK’s Guardian newspaper in which he delivers more bombshells sure to anger the global green movement, which for years worshipped his Gaia theory and apocalyptic predictions that billions would die from man-made climate change by the end of this century."

It’s the best research money can buy.
