Skeptics argue that federal research has become tainted by the involvement of activists and a grant process that rewards climate-disaster scenarios. “The only way to get a truly independent review of climate science is to go outside the government and allow a truly independent review of climate science,” said Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change.”
“When you have groups like the National Academy of Sciences, which are nearly 100 percent dependent on government funding, it is very difficult to ever expect unbiased reviews,” he said. “When you have reports like the National Climate Assessment that was coordinated by Obama’s lead UN Paris negotiator and activists from the Union of Concerned Scientists, you can’t expect unbiased reports on the science.”
Climate Depot’s Marc Morano said it was “about time that the Trump administration is going to push back on the weak scientific claims of the climate-change establishment.” “And they are no weaker than in the area of national security, said Mr. Morano, author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change.” “Let’s hope this new commission and the elevation of Dr. Happer in the administration will herald a new pushback on the increasingly desperate claims of ‘settled’ science.”
WaPo: The White House is working to assemble a panel to assess whether climate change poses a national security threat, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post, a conclusion that federal intelligence agencies have affirmed several times since President Trump took office. The proposed Presidential Committee on Climate Security, which would be established by executive order, is being spearheaded by William Happer, a National Security Council senior director. Happer, an emeritus professor of physics at Princeton University, has said that carbon emissions linked to climate change should be viewed as an asset rather than a pollutant.
Flashback: Princeton Physicist Dr. Will Happer hired as Trump’s new tech adviser - 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."
