While it is great that he has changed his mind, it is unfortunate that he was the vocal critic of mainstream science for so long. His work was quoted by the handful of very loud and well funded climate change deniers over and over again. Indeed, it is because of these deniers that we do not have a coherent greenhouse gas management plan or a thoughtful energy policy in the U.S. So, forgive me if my applause is modest for having Dr. Muller come around to the side of science and reason.
