And this guy says so too:
Muller…… Never Was A Skeptic
Wow, it seems like just less than a year ago we put this bit of disinformation to bed. Well, desperate measures for desperate times, I suppose. As we watch the death throes of climate alarmism, we’ll see this sort of regurgitation. So, I’ll cover a few issues which will certainly be brought back up after this latest round of lunacy to arrive. For the science of it all, just scroll to the bottom of the page to laugh at the people believing Muller knows what he’s talking about.

Thanks for posting that link. It's a testament to how wrong you are always and that you never learn.

Hey Steve, where is that quote "I used to be a Skeptic, But Now I'm Not" in your link?

Are you again doing a dirtie or tina or kal or just denier Steve?

It isn't in there, but it's rather widely claimed by your side that this guy used to be a skeptic. The claim is bullshit.

In the big picture, Richard Muller is a nonentity, someone alarmists will dump when they've squeezed the last drop of juice out of him.
They have nothing better to talk about, so regurgitate another old chestnut.

Yet Anthony is a hero of the denier multitude. Never fear though, he will keep denying until the water laps his nostrils.

Not sure that Dr. Mueller can be called a 'skeptic' of AGW so much as a 'critic' of the methodology used to quantify it. He made several claims of inaccuracy with the conventional sciences based on claims of 'bad science', not that the world wasn't warming.

But, of course, the fact that he has now confirmed and validated the science based on his own work doesn't faze the denialists. They don't need facts for denial.

When will they finish computer modeling and move to the lab or the field? How long are we going to be fed computer simulations?

I'm impressed by experimental test, not computer models. I prefer science to cyber-pseudoscience.

Depends on how you use the term skeptic. If you are referring to scientific skeptics, you are dead wrong. If you are referring to the skeptical attitude of the deniers, then perhaps, but most polls I have seen give the edge to those who believe in global warming even then.

“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.”
- Richard Muller, 2008
“There is a consensus that global warming is real.…it’s going to get much, much worse.”– Richard Muller, 2008
“Let me be clear. My own reading of the literature and study of paleoclimate suggests strongly that carbon dioxide from burning of fossil fuels will prove to be the greatest pollutant of human history. It is likely to have severe and detrimental effects on global climate.”– Richard Muller, 2003
I don't know what planet you're on; he was a skeptic.

You don't tell us where you mined those quotes so we'll have to assume you're mistaken, like you have been several times before.

You can't always go by what a person says. Richard Nixon said he wasn't a crook, but he most certainly was. Bill Clinton said he never had sexual relations with that woman, but a blowjob is sex in my book. I met a woman in Biloxi who said she didn't drink (alcohol) as she drank half my friend's bourbon and Coke.

You say you're not a denier, but you are.

We see how much of a nonentity he is by the attacks you guys are launching.

"I certainly feel that there is lots of room for skepticism on the human component of warming," Muller said.(11/3/11, Huffpost)

And how much distance you're putting between you and him.

"Richard Muller is not who he says he is. He is an advocate of the theory of man-made global warming," wrote a columnist in The Charleston Daily Mail. "The skeptic who claims to have debunked climate skepticism never was a skeptic," declared the folks at JunkScience.com .

"It is ironic if some people treat me as a traitor, since I was never a skeptic -- only a scientific skeptic," he said in a recent email exchange with The Huffington Post.

"I certainly feel that there is lots of room for skepticism on the human component of warming," Muller said.
"Scientists," he said, "have a professional responsibility to be skeptical."(ibid.)

Last week the University of Texas provost announced he would re-examine a report by a UT professor that said fracking was safe for groundwater after the revelation that the professor pocketed hundreds of thousands of dollars from a Texas natural gas developer. It’s the latest fusillade in the ongoing battle over the basic facts of fracking in America.

Texans aren’t the only ones having their fracking conversations shaped by industry-funded research. Ohioans got their first taste last week of the latest public-relations campaign by the energy policy wing of the US Chamber of Commerce. It’s called “Shale Works for US,” and it aims to spend millions on advertising and public events to sell Ohioans on the idea that fracking is a surefire way to yank the state out of recession.

The campaign is loaded with rosy employment statistics, which trace to an April report authored by professors at three major Ohio universities and funded by, you guessed it, the natural gas industry. The report paints a bright future for fracking in Ohio as a job-creator.

One co-author of the study, Robert Chase, is poised at such a high-traffic crossroads of that state’s natural gas universe that his case was recently taken up by the Ohio Ethics Commission, whose chairman called him “more than a passing participant in the operations of the Ohio oil and gas industry,” and questioned his potential conflicts of interest. As landowners in a suite of natural gas-rich states like Texas and Ohio struggle to to decipher conflicting reports about the safety of fracking, Chase is a piece in what environmental and academic watchdogs call a growing puzzle of industry-funded fracking research with poor disclosure and dubious objectivity.
