Princeton University professor emeritus William Happer, a notorious climate change denier, is going to be appointed to the “Presidential Committee on Climate Security,” a panel which would work to undermine findings about man-made climate change within the national security community, notes Democracy Now.
Happer, a National Security Council senior director, compared carbon dioxide to Jewish people killed in the Holocaust on CNBC in 2014:
[T]he demonization of carbon dioxide is just like the demonization of the poor Jews under Hitler. Carbon dioxide is actually a benefit to the world, and so were the Jews.
Democracy Now reports that “Happer also supports prohibiting federally funded scientists from communicating their findings to the public.”
