Graphic Video Showing Changes in the Surface Temperature of the Earth

Richard Muller, professor of physics, McArthur Prize winner and principal investigator for the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project, took a hard look at the actual data regarding changes in surface temperatures on the Earth over the past two centuries.

The BEST project was funded in part by the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation, one of the Koch brother entities dedicated to "the advancement of economic freedom" and a conservative climate change skeptic.

Climate change skeptics loved Muller - until he reported on the data.

Muller's research group has put together a video that shows the changes. Wow.

The video makes the data come alive. It is impossible to miss the huge temperature changes. Look at especially the post-1950 changes.
