A vicarious deep dive into climate change
I've had an item on my todo list for months to take a deep dive into the question of anthropogenic climate change. Alas, with everything going on right now I just don't have the time. Happily, it turns out that a Berkeley physics professor named Richard Muller has done it for me. Muller was a climate-change skeptic who did an exhaustive study of the literature in 2012 and changed his mind. He now runs an organization dedicated to sober, objective, open, and reproducible analysis of climate data. It's a model of how science ought to be done. They've done a much, much better and more thorough job of cutting through the gordian knot than I could ever hope to. So thanks, Prof. Muller!
