A well-known climate-change decrier has looked at the evidence and changed his mind. This is why we have science. So someone can weigh evidence and make informed decisions. Good for him for being willing to publicly change his stance.

Asked what prompted him to change his mind on global warming, Muller said Rhode's analyses of temperature data covering hundreds of years and from thousands of newfound climate stations - including records by Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin - were too powerful to ignore.

"I didn't expect to get such clear data," Muller said. "It has cleared up a lot of Augean stables, and I hope it opens up the discussion rationally."
