Quotes by William Happer

Climate Myth What the Science Says
"The contemporary 'climate crusade' has much in common with the medieval crusades."
7 October 2011 (Source)
Modern scientists, not anti-science skeptics, follow in Galileo’s footsteps.
"The frequency of extreme events has either not changed or has decreased in the 150 years that CO2 levels have increased from 270 to 390 ppm."
1 July 2011 (Source)
Extreme weather events are being made more frequent and worse by global warming.
"Carbon is the stuff of life. Our bodies are made of carbon. A normal human exhales around 1 kg of CO2 (the simplest chemically stable molecule of carbon in the earth’s atmosphere) per day."
1 July 2011 (Source)
By breathing out, we are simply returning to the air the same CO2 that was there to begin with.
"As far as green plants are concerned, CO2 is not a pollutant, but part of their daily bread—like water, sunlight, nitrogen, and other essential elements."
1 July 2011 (Source)

Through its impacts on the climate, CO2 presents a danger to public health and welfare, and thus qualifies as an air pollutant

"About fifty million years ago, a brief moment in the long history of life on earth, geological evidence indicates, CO2 levels were several thousand ppm, much higher than now. And life flourished abundantly."
1 July 2011 (Source)
When CO2 was higher in the past, the sun was cooler.
