What makes this announcement even more remarkable is that the study was partially funded by the Charles Koch Foundation, which is known for funding skeptic groups and is run by two brothers involved in industries that produce large greenhouse gas emissions.Though the potential effects of global warming on our world cannot be imagined, we can all agree that drastic change to our climate can have major consequences if left to continue unchecked. The research and findings of these reviews seems to indicate that, despite heavy skepticism, the concept of global warming may very well be correct.
Richard Muller has faced heavy criticism for his change of mind, but hopefully this change will spur some more great thinkers in our world to reconsider the evidence and make appropriate recommendations.
The findings, which have yet to be peer reviewed or published, were presented at a conference yesterday, said to be attended by heavy hitting skeptics of global warming and climate change. A spokesman for the Charles Koch Foundation says they are “proud to support this strong, transparent research,” and they plan to continue funding research to determine the cause of global warming and begin probing into ocean temperatures as part of the overall research.
