SOME SCIENTIFIC CONSENSUS, Part Whatever (so many that I lost count):
Physics professor William Happer GS ’64 has some tough words for scientists who believe that carbon dioxide is causing global warming.By the way don't skip the part about being fired by VP Al Gore for not toeing to ecochondria. Take note of this and tell it to whoever goes with the "Bush manipulated the scientific reports on GW and pressured the experts bla bla bla" line.
“This is George Orwell. This is the ‘Germans are the master race. The Jews are the scum of the earth.’ It’s that kind of propaganda,” Happer, the Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor of Physics, said in an interview. “Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. Every time you exhale, you exhale air that has 4 percent carbon dioxide. To say that that’s a pollutant just boggles my mind. What used to be science has turned into a cult.”
Happer served as director of the Office of Energy Research in the U.S. Department of Energy under President George H.W. Bush and was subsequently fired by Vice President Al Gore, reportedly for his refusal to support Gore’s views on climate change. He asked last month to be added to a list of global warming dissenters in a Senate Environment and Public Works Committee report. The list includes more than 650 experts who challenge the belief that human activity is contributing to global warming.
