WAIT, I THOUGHT YOU COULD ALWAYS DISCREDIT A STUDY BY POINTING OUT RIGHT-LEANING FUNDERS: Koch-funded study finds global warming is real.
Yeah, but doing a study with right-wing funding is practically scientific misconduct all by itself, right?
More serious commentary from Ron Bailey. Clearly this means we need to build more fracking-supported natural gas infrastructure right away, since that’s been lowering our carbon footprint over the last several years. Then, over the longer term, nice, greenhouse-friendly nuclear plants!
More reactions here. And Charlie Martin explains the charges of “systematic error.” Well, what do you expect in a study funded by evil right-wingers?
UPDATE: Charlie Martin emails:
It’s really more than just a reaction to Mueller’s Op Ed — Anthony is announcing new and significant scientific findings that conflict with Mueller. Also, see my update: there are a lot of people calling Mueller’s findings wrong, or overstrong, or even “rubbish”. Even Andy Revkin at Dot Earth says he doesn’t find Mueller’s stuff cnvincing.
I’ll have quotes from Anthony and Judy Curry (at least) tomorrow.
