Appearing on CNN’s New Day, prior to Saturday’s Science March in Washington D.C., physicist William Happer, who has advised Trump on the environment, attempted to explain to the CNN audience that climate change is a “myth” and that the world is actually getting “greener.” Speaking with host Victor Blackwell, Happer argued, “There’s this myth that’s developed around carbon dioxide that it’s a pollutant, but you and I both exhale carbon dioxide with every breath. Carbon dioxide is a perfectly natural gas, it’s just like water vapor, it’s something that plants love. They grow better with more carbon dioxide, and you can see the greening of the earth already from the additional carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.”
He then proceeded to claim that climate scientists “are no different than the Nazis” because “it’s all one huge, global conspiracy designed to lie to the people that the planet is getting warmer.” He added, “And it gets better. They went so far as to claim that it doesn’t end there, but that everything is our fault, because we breathe out carbon dioxide. They’d have us believe that because the population numbers are rising and because we’re carbon-based life forms, that we’re destroying the planet by simply breathing every day and by living our lives. Are you aware of how preposterous that sounds? I mean, the brass on these guys; to make matters worse, they’re selling the heck out of it and they’re gaining momentum by the day. It’s very similar to the beginnings of Hitler’s dogma in pre-World War II Germany. Global warming advocates are no better, believe me.”
When Blackwell asked him to elaborate on his scandalous comparison, Happer argued the following: “Here’s how it works. The main idea here is to get everybody to believe it’s our own doing that’s causing the planet to get hotter and hotter. First of all, neither is the global temperature getting higher every year, nor is it our fault. Behind all of it is, like I said, a conspiracy artificially fabricated by a handful of wanna-be-scientists who like to play academics by wearing lab coats in their spare time. Who they’re working for is not something I’m going to go into right now, but bottom line, they want to make the planet colder and stop the so-called ‘greenhouse effect.’ Essentially, they’re trying to revert the planet back to the ice age.”
“And if that continues, we’ll all freeze to death, when, in reality, all we’re trying to do is get a bit warmer. Now, if you recall, the Nazis were also doing something similar some 70 years ago. They were committing genocide on a global scale. What most people don’t realize is we’re basically talking about the same agenda and the same type of people. The only difference is, the Nazis did it because they believed their race was superior and no other race deserved to exist, whereas these guys are doing it because they’re being paid to by someone very powerful. At the end of the day, it’s up to us not to believe a word said by the likes of Bill Nye the so-called ‘Science Guy,’ because they’re being paid to lie to you. Very handsomely, I’m guessing, which is why they’re so convincing and only deal with ‘facts.’ Luckily, I was there to advise President Trump on the right course of action, so don’t you worry, my fellow Americans. All is well and will be for years to come,” Happer shamelessly concluded his rant.
