A 'fringe figure' who says plant food good for planet

global warmingThere are more cheers and jeers for the Trump administration, this time over climate change and national security.

The Trump administration is exploring the idea of a special committee to examine climate change and security risks, with the effort being coordinated by 79-year-old physicist William Happer.

According to The Associated Press, Happer rejects popular climate science.

"I would say that Will Happer rejects mainstream climate hysteria. I don't think he rejects science," counters Steve Milloy of JunkScience.com and a member of the Trump EPA transition team.

Happer, Milloy points out, is a Princeton graduate and an "esteemed" physicist who "happens to think rightly that carbon dioxide is plant food, and the more of it we have the greener the earth will be as NASA satellite photographs reveal, and I'm hoping that Will can pull this off."

That view, however, is overshadowed by many scientists and politicians, and a compliant media, who collectively warn of a global catastrophe by a warming planet. Hence the push for the radical "Green New Deal" that demands dropping fossil fuels for renewable energies, with the goal of literally saving humanity.  

"Global warming must be denied because it would restrict the free use of the environment for profit," opined the World Socialist Party last week. "The lie that it's false must be continued to people don't mobilize to stop the capitalist system in order to save ourselves." 

Milloy, Steve (JunkScience.com)Naomi Oreskes, a Harvard science historian who wrote a book on climate denial, "Merchants of Doubt," takes exception to Happer's claims that carbon dioxide is good for humans.

Retired U.S. Navy Rear Admiral David Titley, now a professor of meteorology at Pennsylvania State University, also has concerns.

"Happer would be a fringe figure even for climate skeptics," Titley told the AP.

"Naomi Oreskes is not a climate scientist and Titley is an alarmist," responds Milloy. "Let's get together a committee of climate bedwetters and opponents, and see what they come up with."
