Princeton Physicist Tells Congress Earth in ‘CO2 Famine’ – Increase ‘Will Be Good for Mankind’
Dr. Will Happer, once fired by Al Gore, challenges former vice president’s much-published claim that warming debate over.
?The earth was just fine in those times,? Happer said. ?You know, we evolved as a species in those times, when CO2 levels were three or four times what they are now. And, the oceans were fine, plants grew, animals grew fine. So it?s baffling to me that, you know, we?re so frightened of getting nowhere close to where we started.?
That directly conflicts with the line Gore has been telling the media for years. In November 2007, Gore told NBC?s ?Today? that there was ?as strong a consensus as you’ll ever see in science? that global warming was caused by mankind.
The chairwoman of the EPW committee, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., has long supported Gore?s ?global warming battle.? During Wednesday?s hearing, she was skeptical of Happer?s view, stating a lot had changed in the 80 million years. But Happer explained that the laws of science had not changed.
?Well, I don?t think that the laws of nature, physics and chemistry have changed in 80 million year,? Happer said. ?Eighty million years ago, the earth was a very prosperous place and there?s no reason to think it will suddenly become bad now.?
Global warming a crock? Shocking!! Global warming a Leftist power grab? Say it isn’t so!!!
