Richard Muller mis-represented himself to the Koch Brothers, took money from them to create a temperature record, and
hired a non-scientist to be his chief scientist. (Update : Zeke says Mosher is not the chief scientist.)
Since the global warming pause started, Berserkley Earth has been diverging from satellite data at 3.3C/century.
Update : Zeke wants land only vs. Best, not Best Upper. Same story.
Muller was always a wild-eyed alarmist.

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. I would love to believe that the results of Mann et al. are correct, and that the last few years have been the warmest in a millennium.
