BEST Physicist Interviewed on MSNBC about Charles Koch Foundation Support

Richard Muller, with the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Project, was recently interviewed by MSNBC’s Martin Bashir to discuss the study’s findings. Below is an excerpt of Dr. Muller discussing the Charles Koch Foundation’s support of his research:

“MARTIN BASHIR: [The Charles Koch Foundation is] still supporting you, but were you asked to take a second look at the data and were they upset with it?

RICHARD MULLER: Not at all. From the beginning, they said they would like to see the science be made more transparent and done at the highest quality. One of the things we have done is taken our data and analysis and made them available online. Anyone can verify us. If they disagree, it’s easy for them to check. Business was very high. My sense is they really didn’t know what the answer would be. They felt, I think properly, there had been questions raised and we would do it and we have. They never once indicated to us what they hoped we would find.”
