Embarrasses Physicists Everywhere
Thanks to EarthFirst.com for pointing out this testimony before Congress. This guy is Princeton physicist William Happer (physicists know sooo much about the climate, right?), the same spud that chairs the Board of Directors of the George C. Marshall Institute. The Marshall Institute is funded ‘partially’ by Exxon and American Standard…
All I can say is that this asshole must have no soul. He certainly doesn’t appear to worry about whether he does or not. Then again, maybe that’s not a bad thing.
Are we not yet past the point where the “A List” of climate change experts parading before Congress includes people with such fantastic ideas and foolish outlooks? Apparently not. And that’s a good thing.
Get that fellow up on the Hill a bunch more times. Play him on prime time news, over and over. Get him on the David Letterman Show talking about how lovely things were back in the Pleistocene. (I’m pretty sure he said “Pleistocene;” even thought that does not match up at all with the 80 million years ago answer he provided to Senator Boxer regarding the time to which he referred. Is that what you heard?)
I am Jon, and yes, I have been called a dinosaur.
