William Happer is an American physicist specialising in the study of atomic physics, optics, and spectroscopy.
He is a Emeritus Professor Of Physics at Princeton University and a long-term member of the JASON advisory group, where he pioneered the development of adaptive optics.
From 1991 to 1993, he served as director of the Department Of Energy’s Office Of Science as part of the George HW Bush administration. He was dismissed from the Department Of Energy in 1993 by the Clinton administration after disagreements surrounding the ozone hole.
He was then hired by the Trump administration.
No climate emergency
William’s stance on the Sun is the same as that of solar physicist Valentina Zharkova, which is that it drives Earth’s temperature, followed by a host of secondary drivers like water vapour, clouds, oceans, and so on.
Put another way, humans are not more powerful than the Sun and Earth’s climate has always changed.
No sane person denies that the climate changes.
And no sane person thinks that the Sun is less powerful than human activity.
Furthermore, there is absolutely no evidence that Earth’s climate is being changed by humans.
That I have to type this just shows the power of propaganda and indoctrination.
CO2 is our friend
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is neither a pollutant nor a meaningful influencer of temperature. It is what is used in greenhouses as plant food.
The more CO2 there is, the more life there is. Without CO2, nothing would exist. Lower levels of CO2 mean less life; higher levels of CO2 mean more life.
CO2 is critical for all life on Earth.
NASA knows this and has admitted as much.
Furthermore, CO2 levels have fluctuated throughout Earth’s history, independently of temperature, and with no help from humans or animals.
There was no Industrial Revolution for most of history, so what caused climate change?
Certainly not us.
More CO2, please
Ultimately, CO2 is critical because it plays an important role in a process called photosynthesis, which is how plants and some other organisms make their food. Photosynthesis is like a superpower for plants because it allows them to convert energy from the sun, along with carbon dioxide and water, into glucose (a type of sugar) and oxygen.
Plants use the energy from the sun to break apart the CO2 molecules and take the carbon atoms from them. They then combine these carbon atoms with water to create glucose.
Glucose is like the fuel that plants need to grow, reproduce, and carry out their daily activities.
The oxygen produced during photosynthesis is released back into the air.
Here’s my conversation with William.
