A recent study funded in part by the Charles G. Koch Foundation supports existing scientific evidence that global climate change is happening and is primarily caused by humans. The study's lead author, Dr. Richard Muller, was a well-known climate skeptic who was "converted" by his own examination of global temperature data.
