    I don't know what motivates him, but is seems obvious he's not playing in good faith. Does he do so for the money, or do they give him the money because he's "reliable"?

    There was a good post about this on Climate Progress recently - Climate Change and the Soothing Message of Luke-Warmism:

    “Luke-warmists” may be defined as those who appear to accept the body of climate science but interpret it in a way that is least threatening: emphasising uncertainties, playing down dangers, and advocating a slow and cautious response.

    They are politically conservative and anxious about the threat to the social structure posed by the implications of climate science. Their “pragmatic” approach is therefore alluring to political leaders looking for a justification for policy minimalism.

    Muller falls comfortably into this camp. Perhaps he does not want to see our country vigorously take on climate change, so he soft sells.
