“All the evidence I see is that the current warming of the climate is just like past warmings. In fact, it’s not as much as past warmings yet, and it probably has little to do with carbon dioxide, just like past warmings had little to do with carbon dioxide. I have spent a long research career studying physics that is closely related to the greenhouse effect, for example, absorption and emission of visible and infrared radiation, and fluid flow. Based on my experience, I am convinced that the current alarm over carbon dioxide is mistaken.”

Professor denies global warming theory
My friends, I see that the climate change dissenters can now count another amongst their number.
William Happer, the Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor of Physics at Princeton University, is now a fully-fledged dissenter.
He was a former director of the Office of Energy Research (now the Office of Science) in the U.S. Department of Energy, but was sacked by Vice President Al Gore for having the temerity to question his stance on so-called climate change.
So much for scientific debate!
