Morano: "President Donald Trump may be presiding over the disintegration of the UN Paris climate pact,” said Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, adding that the U.S. decision “set a global example and it may have led to the agreement potentially teetering on the brink of its own survival.”
President Trump's new top science advisor Dr. Will Happer of Princeton University has told The Scientist that the significance of climate change has been "tremendously exaggerated" and has "become sort of a cult movement in the last five or 10 years."
Happer: "The world has lots and lots of problems, but increasing CO2 is not one of the problems. So [the accord] dignifies it by getting all these yahoos who don't know a damn thing about climate saying, 'This is a problem, and we're going to solve it.' All this virtue signaling. You can read about it in the Bible: Pharisees and hypocrites and phonies."
CNN claim: "His [Happer's] public stance on climate change is in opposition to near universally accepted science."
Former Harvard Physicist Dr. Lubos Motl responds to CNN: "Right. By their definition, this scam is nearly universally accepted as "science" by these scammers. If you're an expert in the climate hysteria who is approved by other experts in the climate hysteria, you usually accept that the climate hysteria is rational. Otherwise you wouldn't be an expert over the climate hysteria. Instead, the real question is whether a rational society should nurture and pay "experts" in the climate hysteria – "experts" in a discipline where the big answer is decided from the beginning and it's a scientifically ludicrous one. We also learn:
CNN: "Happer, who is not a climate expert, specialized in atomic physics and the study of optics at Princeton."
Motl: "Is Happer a climate expert? How should we interpret the negative sentence above? You know, as some "climate experts" don't know, the global warming is supposed to be caused by the greenhouse effect which is physically the absorption of the infrared radiation by the air. Is Happer an expert in that? Well, search
Unsurprisingly, he has written numerous articles that are "mainly" about the infrared absorption bands and Google Scholar finds over 1,000 articles that contain his name as well as "infrared". So when it comes to the main physical effect that is supposed to drive "climate change", he's not only an expert. He's one of the world's leading experts. CNN and doomsaying crackpots in general surely find this fact inconvenient but this inconvenience doesn't make it less true."
