Climate Depot Round Up on Richard Muller: Scientists trashing Muller’s work…Muller stands accused of being ‘front man for geoengineering org.’ — Muller Responds to Climate Depot’

[Climate Depot, serving the public interest, continues it’s coverage of Richard Muller of Berkeley’s BEST temperature project]

Scientists Trashing Muller’s work: Peter Thorne of NCDC: ‘The Berkeley team had been ‘seriously compromised’ by publicizing its work before publishing any vetted papers’

Muller calculating his scientific claims?! ‘He basically destroys the reputation & research of most of [AGW’s] most notable super stars & yet he believes the science they promote is sound — amazing![email protected] Muller’s alleged ‘skeptical’ climate quotes manufactured?! ‘On one hand he says that virtually all the science flowing from IPCC and various proponent organizations is shoddy, yet he believes that the science that underpins it which is product of those same individuals and organizations is accurate’

Richard Muller Stands Accused: ‘He is the front man for a geoengineering organization…which claims theirs is the only means of controlling the earth’s temperature’: ‘So they employ Dr. Muller to rubbish all the carbon control proposals — which he ably does’

Background on Muller’s BEST project: ‘Who is Novim and why are they messing with the Earth’s Temperature update?’ — Muller’s Berkley Earth Surface Group is part of the Novim Group…they are very much into Geo-Engineering: ‘Novim’s Exec Dir. Ditmore: ‘We’re running out of time’ — ‘The Berkley Earth Surface Group is not without an agenda’

Muller’s scientific work failing the grade?: ‘Even [warmist Kevin] Trenberth isn’t too sure about it’: Trenberth is ‘highly skeptical of the hype and claims’ surrounding Muller’s effort and claims the team does ‘not the expertise required in certain areas, and purely statistical approaches are naive’

Scientist Ridicules the Muller Con: ‘I forecast Muller will continue to play role of neutral observer, & will continue to shock us with revelations that climate change is ‘worse than he expected’ accuses Climate Depot of a ‘character assassination’ of Richard Muller — Salon: Based on attack on Muller ‘currently splashed all over the prominent skeptic site, Marc Morano’s Climate Depot, Richard Muller has a long way to go before he makes any new friends in the skeptic community’

NYT’s Andrew Revkin joins Climate Depot in posting email addresses! Revkin: ‘In Marc’s tradition of providing email addresses of his subjects, here’s his: [email protected]

Muller responds to Climate Depot via NYT’s Revkin: ‘Muller, reacting after receiving an attack e-mail from Marc Morano of Climate Depot’ — Muller: ‘In the olden days, people would have checked with

Background reading on Congressional green cutlery controversy:

LA Times: Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Green the Capitol initiative is over at the House’s Longworth cafeteria. — ‘The GOP has succeeded in short order in one critically important venture: getting rid of the “compostable” cornstarch-based knives, forks and spoons that were a universally — and bipartisanly — hated feature of the House cafeteria operation. The tableware, the color of mucus and as bendable as a pocket watch in a Salvador Dali painting (and thus unable to pierce any foodstuff firmer than the innards of Brie cheese), was the most visible manifestation of recently deposed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Green the Capitol initiative. That was her carbon-cutting effort to use the food-service and other House operations to fight global warming and a host of other perceived environmental, health and social ills. During the lunchtime rush, you could observe dozens of staffers struggling to stab lettuce leaves and poultry pieces with fork tines that appeared to be double-jointed as well as dull. […] It turns out that the composting program not only cost the House an estimated $475,000 a year (according to the House inspector general) but actually increased energy consumption in the form of “additional energy for the pulping process and the increased hauling distance to the composting facility,” according to a news release from Lungren.

NY Times: Fight Waged With Forks Is Rejoined in Congress: Further, Ms. Wood added, the spoons would often dissolve in hot liquids, and forks and knives bent and snapped. “They could not penetrate lettuce,” she said, adding, “There were a substantial number of complaints.”

UK Daily Mail: Republicans and Democrats square off in crucial House debate…over canteen cutlery — Given the state of the country, you’d think they would have more important things to debate. But Republicans and Democrats in Congress have been squaring up over an issue which has split them more deeply than usual – the spoons in the House cafeterias. Republicans have ended the Democratic order under which the three cafes had to use compostable cups and utensils when serving food.
