Berkeley Earth Climate Fraudster Makes Another Appearance

Richard Muller says he used to be a skeptic, and that he can convert President Trump to the climate religion in less than two hours.

Trump Calls Global Warming a ‘Hoax.’ This Converted Skeptic Could Change That

Five years ago, Muller told Huffington Post that he “was never a skeptic”

In 2003, he said CO2 is the greatest pollutant in human history, and that he “would love to believe” that the hockey stick is real.

Richard Muller is not a skeptic, he never was a skeptic, and is just one more academic willing to lie for attention. And his temperature data set called BEST is by far the WORST.

    ….first they were “skeptical”, and then they became “converts”?

    So it is a religious faith, after all?

    • AndyG55 says:

      Muller is a CON-ARTIST.

      Way before his acting as a sceptic he made it very clear he was very much a “believer”.

      Pretty sure his daughter , who is a RABID AGW alarmist run the show, though.

  2. AndyG55 says:

    I hope people realise that” the burks” get $1M annually from “anonymous” for “create” their farce of a temperature record.

    And they hired a low-end car salesman (moshpit) as a front-idiot !!

  3. AndyG55 says:

    typo…. “to create” as in FABRICATE.

    • Kris Johanson says:

      From their website: “……Berkeley Earth systematically addressed the five major concerns that global warming skeptics had identified, and did so in a systematic and objective manner… ”

      And yet the priests of AGW contradict themselves IN THEIR OWN WORDS, and admit their fraud & cover ups IN THEIR OWN EMAILS to one another, and the HISTORIC RECORD clearly shows them flip flopping between cooling and warming, ice gain and ice loss, seas rising and seas falling.

  4. AndyG55 says:

    Tony, I hope you are able to somehow warn Trump or his associates that Muller is a LIAR and a FRAUDSTER. !!

    • griff says:

      And yet the published results of Berkley Earth show that the surface temp record can be relied on, that the UHI effect is not distorting it and that it is indeed warming.

      A set of scientific, published results which utterly refute the skeptic viewpoint and which skeptics will not examine or engage with, instead attacking the man, not the data

      • gator69 says:

        Ms Griff is once again spreading genocidal propaganda…


        According to the best-sited stations, the diurnal temperature range in the lower 48 states has no century-scale trend.

        The current rating of surface stations (82.5% surveyed) as of 07/30/2012

        CRN Rating:
        CRN1-2, 7.9%
        CRN3-5, 92.1%

        1 Flat and horizontal ground surrounded by a clear surface with
        a slope below 1/3 (<19°). Grass/low vegetation ground cover
        3 degrees.

        2 Same as Class 1 with the following differences. Surrounding
        Vegetation 5°.

        3 (error 1°C) ‐ Same as Class 2, except no artificial heating
        sources within 10 meters.

        4 (error ≥2°C) ‐ Artificial heating sources <10 meters

        5 (error ≥5°C) ‐ Temperature sensor located next to/above an
        artificial heating source, such a building, roof top, parking lot,
        or concrete surface

        Genocidal grantlolgists claimed that the surface stations were good, and they were dead wrong. Just like Muller claiming to be a skeptic, it is a lie.

        • Arn says:

          Exactly the results one would expect with such a tiny tiny fraction of a fraction co2 in our atmosphere wich is man made((once again a wrong term,as this co2 is not man made,
          as man can not create matter.
          It is rereleased co2 which was ‘captured’ by plants
          from the atmosphere and is now given back to atmospheric cycle)

          it makes no sense to “teach” Griff .
          To quote Russel Baker:

          “An educated person is one who has learned that informations always turn out to be at best incomplete and very often false.”

          and Tony is proving this time and time again
          and Griff is proving that she is a not educated,
          but it’s not her fault as another
          Russel(bertrand) said:”Education should be aimed
          to destroy free will”
          and Griffs was succefully destroyed.

          That’s why Griff and her compatriots are ignoring the absolute overwhelming evidence that climate science is a scam.
          All those wrong predictions – Griff does not care.
          All the data tampering-Griff does not care

          All those ” ice age doom&gloom scenarios” predicted by the very same scientists who now predict “global warming”-
          They did a complete 180-a thing that has never happened in science before and never will.

          Even the successfull rebranding of global warming into climate change did not made her curious(wasn’t change besides hope the main lie which made obamas lemmings follow him blindly-seems the word change is a powerfull tool to manipulate)

          • gator69 says:

            Trust me, I know that Ms Griff is incapable of learning anything that could interfere with her favorite genocide. Normal human beings recoil at the idea of spending precious resources on worthless ice, while allowing innocent humans to starve to death, but Ms Griff is abnormal.

            My posts are meant to illustrate to the fence sitters just how demented and dangerous the CAGW cult has become. They are the ISIS of the scientific world, submit or die, the CAGW cult kills thousands of times as many humans annually.

        • Colorado Wellington says:

          I’m afraid Ms Griff will have to stop worrying about Berkeley Earth and start watching the movements of her Muslim coworkers so she’s not around for one of those “blessed attacks”.

          A pro-ISIS news agency has told followers to stay away from the ‘gathering places of the Crusaders’ as it warns that ‘thousands of lonely lions’ are prepared to slaughter civilians at any time.

          In a statement published by Nashir News Agency, people in America, Russia, France, Britain, Canada, Belgium, Australia – and those ‘outside the Caliphate’ – are warned of ‘almost daily blessed attacks’ by Islamic State fighters.

          ‘We will explode, run over people by vehicles and cut off their necks in any time,’ the statement reads.

          • gator69 says:

            Well this just proves Ms Griff’s point about the IRA, and how evil they are. When was the last time the IRA gave warning for an upcoming attack?

      • Robertv says:

        Nobody is disputing that temperatures went up since the little ice age. Ofcourse if you prefer those temperatures there is little we can do. A pity we can’t ask the people who lived in those days if they would have prefered a warmer more stable climate.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Griff could move out of its inner city ghetto basement and move to Siberia if it wants LIA type cold .

          But it won’t do that. It likes its warm, high CO2, fossil fuel heated basement, were REALITY can NEVER reach it.

      • Stewart Pid says:

        Griff are u truly stupid enough to be able to say that the urban heat islands have no effect? Have you never been inside a city and rode a bike or motorcycle around and felt the temperature change as you hit the countryside? Have you never looked at the evening news when they show the stations from all over a metropolitan area and the UHI is obvious enough for a blind man to see it. You must have shit for brains!!

      • AndyG55 says:


        griff , you really are a prize IDIOT if you think anything from BEST can be trusted as anything but pre-determined propaganda farce !!!

      • tonyheller says:


        • AndyG55 says:

          I knew Muller’s group was a manifest farce, but I didn’t realise it was quite as badly fraudulent as that graph indicates.

          They are very obviously PAID AGW-scammers.

          The WORST of the WORST. !!

        • An Inquirer says:

          Why does this graph comparing Muller to NASA to Satellite only go to 2015?

          • John F. Hultquist says:

            Because at that point the seas had stopped rising and temperatures were stable for the first time in 4.5 billion years. We can thank B. O. for this wondrously benign environment.
            Therefore, there is no need to collect additional data.
            Hope this helps.

          • tonyheller says:

            Five year centered mean ends in 2015.

          • An Inquirer says:

            John, thanks for the laugh!

            Tony, thanks for the explanation.

      • An Inquirer says:

        Griff, it has been years since I have followed Muller, so if there has been updates, I would be interested. However, open-minded scientists lost faith with Muller when he did not do in his BEST study what he said he would do. He said he would not just accept the adjustments made by “officials” to actual temperatures, but concentrate on actual temperatures. He did not do that. He abandoned actual temperatures when he published his results, causing dismay even among some from the “consensus view.”

      • Andy DC says:

        How many data sets has Tony produced on this site? How many of those sets have you ever “totally refuted” or proven wrong?

        Mindlessly regurgitating propaganda from those who blatantly “adjust” data to fit their agenda does not qualify as refuting. Until you put in the amount of time and hard work that Tony has to make his case, you are just making noise, like a little yapping dog.

      • Kris Johanson says:

        “instead attacking the man, not the data”

        Okay, that’s a good point. But if you read the above pieces, it’s all about “I, me, I, me, my best seller, I, me” …. so he sort of invites it

  5. Robertv says:

    Meanwhile it seems that CO2 is on holiday.

  6. Arn says:

    Climate Science has reached such new lows
    that these guys even have to tamper their own personal data.

    How can you expect a man to understand future complex climate models
    when he isn’t even able to know a simpletons(his very own) past?

  7. Douglas Hoyt says:

    Here is a paper that points out that up to 80% of the observed warming in Spain is caused by urban heat islands.

    There are other papers that show similar results all around the planet.

  8. richard verney says:

    If Muller was a scientist, and interested in the scientific method, he would audit the reporting stations, select the very best sited stations (no encroachment by changes in nearby land use, urbanisation, station moves etc), and those with the best practices and then retrofit those stations with the same LIG thermometers (calibrated in Fahrenheit or Centigrade as appropriate for the station in question) as were used in the 1930s and 1940s and then take actual temperature observations employing the same practice and TOB as used by each individual station back in the 1930s/1940s.

    He would then be able to compile a modern RAW data set and could compare that directly to the historic RAW data at each station, and there would be no need to make any adjustments for TOB, instrument changes, UHI etc. Just RAW against RAW.

    There would be no compiling of a global or hemispherical set. Just take say the best 100 stations and simply compare each with itself, to see what if any change had occurred at each station.

    In this manner, we would soon know how much warming there has truly been since the late 1930s/1940s, and how much of the apparent warming in the GISS And BEST sets is simply an artifact of modern adjustments/homogenization/infilling.

    the 1930s/1940s is the relevant date since not only was this a warm decade, this is the date when manmade CO2 began to significantly increase. we would be able to quickly see what impact 95% of all manmade CO2 may have had on temperature (of course even if there is a temperature change, it is not necessarily caused by CO2, but if there has been no real temperature change, then that would be very interesting and would suggest that CO2 is unlikely to be a problem).

    Science is about observation. Why doe he not do some?

    • richard verney says:


      Science is about experimentation and observation. Why does he not do some?

      • Jason Calley says:

        Hey Richard! “Science is about experimentation and observation. Why does he not do some?”

        Why? Because he is not a scientist.

        When Watts et al started posting the results of their audit of various US stations, I was stunned by just how BAD so many of the station were. I really expected that the community of “climate scientists” would rise up and demand that the old stations be upgraded or replaced. Without reliable data there is no science, and here was a case where the quality of the data was completely unacceptable, but the cost of fixing the stations was small (at least in comparison to the potential value of good data.) However, instead of demanding better data, the response of the climate community was “ho hum, nothing to see here, we can adjust for any errors…” Oh, they still wanted increased funding for their own pet projects, but they seemed supremely unconcerned about whether the data was good or not.

        That is what pushed me over the edge from thinking that proponents of CAGW were reputable scientists to realizing that they were running a scam.

      • Arn says:


        Climate Science is about indoctrination and intimidation.

        And that only works with lies and hidden threats.
        Before Climate science there was no scientific field(even not in Nazi Germany) where special terms like climate denier were created to stigmatize and defame ‘unbelievers’
        and ‘heretics’.
        Noone asked for the imprisoning of “deniers”.
        Noone asked for the killing of deniers like
        like Professor Parncutt did in 2012.
        (a guy who is considered a philantroph and is against death penalty and is kissing mass killing islams Ass and is pro gay marriage- he makes even Griff looks sane and logical)

        because it was about science and not an Agenda
        and critcism was not just allowed but welcomed.

        As soon as there all leading people in media&politics&science are doing the impossible=
        saying the same (especially when all their “scientific” predictions turned out to be wrong)
        than this is neither science nor opinion but rampant fascism and someone is pulling their strings.
        Than there is a choirmaster who keeps them all in line and singing the same.
        This is not free will or research but simply singing the lyrics from a peace of paper.

        Never confuse scientists with a parasitic gang of butt kissers.
        The first one is doing his job
        the second one is just trying to keep his salary together with the rest of the mob.

  9. John F. Hultquist says:

    When Watts et al …

    I chronicled the movement of locations of 2 stations in small communities. Neither of these ever (then or now) were/are properly sited. Locals need to know where the location is relative to their position and mentally make adjustments throughout the day.
    Another local station is at the apex of airport runways, closely surrounded by a ring of modular concrete Jersey barriers.
    Coordinates on Google Earth: 47.033698, -120.530597

      Quote is from Jason Calley @ 12:38

    • Jason Calley says:

      Hey John, my thanks to you and all the many volunteers who did the hard work of checking out the stations all over the US.
      How on earth can climate scientists find it acceptable to have more than 2/3 of the stations showing estimated errors of over 2 degrees? Of course it is possible (now that the worst stations are identified) to pick the good ones and then use them — but if you have picked the good ones, then why does the data have to be so heavily (and retroactively) have to be altered? Madness!

      The only reasonable explanation I have ever found to explain the long term actions of the climate “scientists” is conscious deceit.

  10. Russell Cook says:

    Piling on. From a Grist Oct 2008 interview of Muller:

    “Do you consider yourself an environmentalist?”

    “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.”

    “… I know you drive a Prius. What else are you doing to reduce your carbon emissions?”

    “My house is lit by compact fluorescent light bulbs. Let me just tell you, though: Suppose I drove an SUV and lit my house with the worst kind of light — I could still be an environmentalist. Al Gore flies around in a jet plane — absolutely fine with me. The important thing is not getting Al Gore out of his jet plane; the important thing is solving the world’s problem. What we really need are policies around the world that address the problem, not feel-good measures. If [Al Gore] reaches more people and convinces the world that global warming is real, even if he does it through exaggeration and distortion — which he does, but he’s very effective at it — then let him fly any plane he wants.”
