Who still takes global warming seriously?

Despite the recent discovery of the e-mails that resulted in "Climate Gate" and the fact this has been one of the coldest and harshest winters in many years, Gov.

Once more, for the kiddies and vision challenged, a shortened version:

"The Earth's climate is dynamic and naturally varies on seasonal, decadal, centennial, and longer timescales. Each "up and down" fluctuation can lead to conditions which are warmer or colder, wetter or drier, more stormy or quiescent."

Once more, for the senile:

The Earth's natural climate covers all the angles. Describing a climate that has been "enhanced" by global warming covers all the angles.

You said NOAA didn't know, so they were covering all the angles. The fact is, they do know, which means they're covering all the angles.

For the inquiring minds:

Our species has invented words to deal with the specific climate of their concern. Now that we observe the human-made climate change occurring globally, we find we have to use all the climate terms to describe the current situation and to predict what's ahead for us humans and the environment.

NOAA on Observing Climate Variability and Change:

The Earth's climate is dynamic and naturally varies on seasonal, decadal, centennial, and longer timescales. Each "up and down" fluctuation can lead to conditions which are warmer or colder, wetter or drier, more stormy or quiescent. Analyses of decadal and longer climate records and studies based on climate models suggest that many changes in recent decades can be attributed to human actions; these decadal trends are referred to as climate change. The effects of climate variability and change ripple throughout the environment and society - indeed touching nearly all aspects of the human endeavor and the environment.

Muller has finalized his plan to leave the skeptic/denier community.

Watts may move into a mental ward.

Global warming not only is real, but "humans are almost entirely the cause," a self-described former climate change skeptic has declared.

"Call me a converted skeptic," Richard A. Muller, University of California, Berkeley physics professor said in an opinion piece posted online Saturday in The New York Times.

Muller in October released results from the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project, set up for global warming skeptics, that showed that since the mid-1950s, global average temperatures over land have risen by 0.9 degrees Celsius (1.6 degrees Fahrenheit).

In his new statement, Muller said, "Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause."

"I was never a skeptic" - Richard Muller, 2011

“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

Richard Muller, Koch brothers-funded scientist, declares global warming is realA
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/global-warmin...
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?

Thanks.

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.

Here's the first one out of the box searching Google for "Muller Skeptic"

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.

Watts is no 'hero' of mine, Bozo.

Where is this "denier multitude" you speak of?
I know sceptics now outnumber believers, but i don't know any 'deniers' as such.
