William Happer, a physics professor and vocal critic of mainstream climate science, has joined the White House as a top adviser. Happer, 79, told E&E News in email that he began serving yesterday on the National Security Council as the senior director for emerging technologies. NSC officials confirmed Happer's new role but declined to provide further detail about the appointment, which CNN first reported.

U.S. Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts, April 24, 2018 Congressional Record: "For those not familiar, the board of the CO2 Coalition includes the controversial physicist William Happer, who has testified in front of Congress multiple times to push climate denialism and the self-serving interest of the fossil fuel industry and the Koch brothers. When I was chairman of the House Select Committee for Energy Independence and Global Warming, Dr. Happer advocated in testimony for the government to support an ''alternative hypothesis,'' which amounted to denial of climate change. This ''alternative hypothesis'' was the grandfather of another familiar term, the Trump Administration's so-called alternative facts -- ''alternative hypothesis.''"

Man is 80 and his views on science were likely dated when he was 50.
