CO2 Coalition Applauds
Will Happer on Completing His Service on the National Security Council; Invites Him Back to its Board

Arlington, Virginia – September 11, 2019: The chairman and executive director of the CO2 Coalition, acting on behalf of its 50 unalarmed climate scientists and energy economists, today issued a statement of thanks to the Coalition’s founder, emeritus Princeton physics professor William Happer, for his government service. Happer will leave the National Security Council Friday, September 13, after the completion of his one-year term as director of emerging technologies.
Happer had previously served as the director of energy research for the Department of Energy, from 1991 to 1993.
The statement by chairman Dr. Patrick Moore, an ecologist and co-founder of Greenpeace who now chairs the CO2 Coalition, and Caleb Stewart Rossiter, a climate statistician and the executive director of the coalition, reads as follows:
“Will, the CO2 Coalition thanks you for your extra year of service to science and the American people. We applauded your willingness to come out of retirement and agree to return to government service for a year in the important position of director of emerging technologies at the National Security Council. Now we applaud you for the contribution you made during this year to projects that protect the security and well-being of the American people.
“We particularly call attention to your efforts this year to harden American infrastructure from electro-magnetic pulses, and to improve a government science bureaucracy that had been producing scientifically unsound and wildly exaggerated reports on the impact of carbon dioxide emissions on global temperature and hence weather variables.
“While your proposed review of alarmist analyses and projections has been delayed, we believe your work in calling attention to the problem of unscientific climate alarmism has reduced the chances of the dramatic increases in energy prices that would arise from the banning of fossil fuels that some have proposed. That in turn will improve and even save lives, both here and abroad.
“We invite you to resume your membership in this coalition you helped found and guide. We hope you will accept the Board’s invitation to rejoin it as well.”

The CO2 Coalition was established in 2015 as a 501(c)(3) for the purpose of educating thought leaders, policy makers, and the public about the important contribution made by carbon dioxide to our lives and the economy.  The Coalition seeks to engage in an informed and dispassionate discussion of climate change, humans’ role in the climate system, the limitations of climate models, and the consequences of mandated reductions in CO2 emissions.
