President Trump is ready to announce Princeton physicist and leading climate skeptic Will Happer as his senior tech adviser.

According to CNN:

William Happer, a Princeton atomic physicist and prominent skeptic questioning whether humans are causing rapid climate change, is joining the National Security Council as senior director for emerging technologies, according to NSC officials.

Happer, 79, is an emeritus professor of physics at Princeton who served in the Department of Energy under President George H.W. Bush in the early 1990s. He did not respond to CNN’s requests for comment.

This will be both a tremendously sensible appointment and a superb piece of trolling by the president.

Already, greenie heads are starting to explode in outrage:

Hilarious. Trump appoints a 79-year-old climate sceptic as his adviser on “emerging technologies”…

“Mr President, I hear that the steam locomotive is now all the rage. Powered by a modern wonder fuel known as coal.”https://edition.cnn.com/2018/09/04/politics/happer-climate-denier-trump-adviser/index.html

This comment by Hickman – formerly a climate activist on the Guardian, now director of the European Union-funded propaganda site Carbon Brief – is depressingly typical of the level to which greenies are prepared to stoop to smear their opponents.

 The most significant facts about Happer, of course, are not that he’s old nor that he’s vocally skeptical about climate change but that he is one of the most distinguished figures in American science.
As I reported here when his appointment was first mooted:

Happer’s scientific bona fides, for example, were – and are – exemplary.
