Independent Scientific Study Finds Global Warming: Funded By 5 Charitable Foundations Including Gates And Koch

From The Christian Science Monitor on MSNBC, "Climate study confirms what skeptics scoffed at: global warming is real: Koch, Gates charities pay for research backing earlier claims that came under fire" by Pete Spotts:
A new climate study shows that since the mid-1950s, global average temperatures over land have risen by 0.9 degrees Celsius (1.6 degrees Fahrenheit), confirming previous studies that have found a climate that has been warming – in fits and starts – since around 1900.
Money for the new study, dubbed the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project, came from five foundations, including one established by Microsoft founder Bill Gates and another from the Charles Koch Charitable Foundation, widely seen as a source of money for conservative organizations and initiatives that have fought efforts to curb greenhouse-gas emissions.

The work makes no attempt to attribute the rising temperatures to any particular cause. Nor does it include ocean temperatures, the subject of a future study.

The independent study group has published it objectives, methods and preliminary papers on a website,, to be transparent about the data, process and conclusions.
