Quote of the Week: Dr. Will Happer's blowback to Greenpeace during ambush at Senate hearing today

In case you missed it, earlier today, co-founder of Greenpeace, Dr. Patrick Moore said today that he’s calling in the FBI on Greenpeace for what he perceives as RICO/racketeering violations in their lame attempt to get Dr. Happer “on the take”.

Dr. Happer also said to the Greenpeace “reporter” who ambushed him in the hearing room, Jesse Coleman:

“You son of a bitch, I haven’t taken a dime.”

Russell Cook notes in  the YouTube video comments section:

After 20+ years of failing to come up with evidence that skeptic climate scientists are paid to lie by industry people, nothing telegraphs that failure better than fabricating the evidence out of thin air right now.


Watch the video:

Dr. Moore said earlier in his FBI press release that:

I shall also be asking the Bureau to investigate Greenpeace’s sources of funding. It is now an enemy of the State, an enemy of humanity and, indeed, an enemy of all species on Earth.

Given their money, their tactics, and their methods, I’m inclined to agree.

Well I haven’t yet been able to view the video (I’m at work; well my computer is.)
But I have to smile at your assessment that Sen. Cruz’s ” colleagues ” left him to twist in the wind.
I have always regarded Sen. Ted Cruz, as being one of the US senators who has no colleagues.
The rest of the GOP senators are largely RINOs; Sen. Inhofe excepted.
And ‘ left ‘ would certainly be the only direction those RINOs would take.
So I take it you feel that the discussion was quite bipartisan.
We have the very best government that money can buy, and those with their hands out for more taxpayer money, make sure that their marionettes stay bought.
And that includes the leech parasites on both sides of the money spigot.
But I’m going to have to watch the video; because I would have bet that Prof Will Happer simply could not decode what the text message “SOB” even stands for.
He surprised me ! Good for you Prof Happer, I would have used less laudatory words myself.

Nossir. ICYMI, Mark Steyn and Dr Curry showed what happens when you turn the tables on the inquisitors. Senator Markey looked none too comfortable when he was hit with a bunch of tough science-based questions, and needed to use a lifeline to Dr Titley.
This will be a standard for other skeptic witnesses to follow in future hearings. The Democrats are clearly vulnerable when it comes to answering questions.

Do not laugh. When I was at Stevens, Prof. Steinmann’s Chem finals were 4 hours of gruesome toil. All multiple choice. You still had to work out the problems, but the good professor helpfully included answers that were a factor of 10 or 100 too high and too low, or involved dividing when you should have multiplied, or taking the incorrect root, etc. Every choice but the right one was a trap designed to make you think you’d nailed it. It was alleged that if you could get a zero on the final he’d give you an “A” for the course. I’d have missed it by 2 points.

So what is a “multiple choice” chemistry exam ? Which of the following 92 elements combines with Oxygen to produce water ??
Only once in my life, other than drivers licence tests, did I ever take a multiple choice test (not an exam).
I guess the premise is that you are given maybe five answers to a question, and have to choose one. ALL five answers are required to be EQUALLY plausible to someone who knows NOTHING about the subject.
So statistically, you can score 20% in total ignorance. The problem is, that it is not possible to construct five equally plausible answers for selection by a candidate who has a limited, but inadequate knowledge of the subject. Most options can be eliminated with quite weak knowledge of the subject.
The one test I did take with multiple choice questions, was some sort of IQ test.
For some reason, the name Stanford seems to be associated with that test; dunno why.
All I remember about the test was that there were several bullshit questions that had multiple correct answers.
These were typically of the generic type (pictorial) where it is stated, that a certain transformation turned object (a) into object (A). Then apply that transformation to object (b) and pick which of (B,C,D,E.F) results.
Well the dummies that set that test were blissfully unaware that there were multiple possible different transformations, that turned (a) into (A), but would give different results for object (b).
For example, a square with a dot in the top left corner, can be turned into a square with a dot in the top right corner; first by rotating 90 degrees to the right in the plane, (z axis) or secondly by a 180 degree rotation about a centered y axis.
You get two different results for a square with a dot centered on the left hand edge of the square.
Multiple choice exams for a university degree exam, would be the result of a totally lazy professor.

I have always thought multiple choice exams as relatively easy to pass. The one exception was Organic Chemistry. When all of the answers look almost exactly alike, figuring out the correct response is no longer a matter of eliminating the most unlikely answers.
Unless you are one of those individuals who it just clicks with, the way to get through Organic Chem is brute force memorization.

To go further down the rabbit hole of multiple choice questions on exams, not all such exams are equal. More than a half century ago, some biology tests at University of Illinois at Navy Pier in Chicago used them.Perhaps 100 or so questions, most with five choices. Zero to five were correct. The score was right minus wrong.

Multiple choice exams – Today, I helped proctor an exam made up of 58 multiple choice questions. The last student finished 3 hours after he started. The exam covered topics covered in one week’s worth of material, with a few review questions from previous weeks. The students are midway through a 14 month training program at the end of which they will be licensed to operate a specific nuclear reactor.
“The site-specific examination for reactor operators (10 CFR 55.41) consists of 75 multiple-choice written questions and an NRC-administered operating test (10 CFR 55.45) that includes a plant walk-through and a performance demonstration on the facility licensee’s power plant simulator.” http://www.nrc.gov/reactors/operator-licensing/licensing-process.html

Professor Happer is an attractive target for Greenpeace – a brilliant mind and unquestioned integrity – and thus the Greenpeace effort was doomed to fail. What it shows is the rank stupidity of their choice of target.

William Happer is a physicist and professor at Princeton University. A Greenpeace investigation revealed that he was secretly taking money from the fossil fuel industry, including coal company Peabody Energy, for his work denying climate change. Read about the investigation here.
The incident occurred in the Senate building directly before a hearing called by Senator Ted Cruz.

So to answer your questions, yes, we can know his name and verify the proper spelling. I doubt he will be arrested as the hearing had not started.

Greenpeace exposes sceptics hired to cast doubt on climate science
Guardian 7 hours ago
Over the course of their investigation, Greenpeace posed as the representative of a Middle Eastern oil and gas company and an Indonesian coal company. In the guise of a Beirut-based business consultant they asked William Happer , the Cyrus Fogg Brackett professor of physics at Princeton University, to write a report touting the benefits of rising carbon emissions, according to email exchanges between the professor and the fake company.
So Greenpeace acknowledges that it believes in dogma: there are many benefits of higher CO2, but they’re not compatible with the religion. Are they that stupid? They can’t disappear all of the published science to accuse Dr Happer of bias.

Coleman is one of the P&G nine.
Arrest Record: http://ohio.arrests.org/Arrests/Jesse_Coleman_16901056
Compare with this record then read the ridiculous baying at psuedo-science central.

Hmm, not sure why that link failed, maybe the trailing slash …

The watermelons refuse to identify when the earth’s past climate was ideal. It’s getting slightly warmer. I like it. I call the change Climate Milding. The mean global temp last year was 14.7 C. San Diego is 17.7. People love San Diego climate: it has been called the best climate in the world. The current global mean temp is below optimal.

Not a good plan to annoy Mark Steyn too!

I just sent Professor Happer a note advising him not to touch anyone from Greenpeace.
It looked to me as though Coleman was goading Happer into attacking him, making things look like how the godless Westboro Baptist Church tries to be assaulted (i.e. “unwanted” touching). A lot of their operation money comes from suing people for assault, suing police departments for lack of protection, etc.
I passed on these URLs describing some of the tactics:

I read this guy’s analysis…very interesting and compelling. You might be right about Greenpeace’s motives. You touch one of their people and they will have a field day with it…probably help raise LOTS of money.

I wrote a cheque a number of years ago through my oil and gas exploration company to the Alberta based Pembina Institute, an Alberta Greenpeace/Sierra Club affiliate that protests everything fossil fuel related. They had no problem cashing the cheque. Ironic, eh?

If that was the plan, then the Greenpeace guy definitely failed the courage test. Dr. Happer clearly asked the guy to step closer… GreenGuy wanted to keep his teeth.

My comment was in response to, and should have been attached to Dr. Roy’s comment at 5:03am.

And Mark Stein was right there at the end of the video backing Happer up! Go Mark!!!

I think that if this had gone on another minute, Mark would have lifted the little twerp up by his ears and thrown him back down the hole he popped up from, something the twerp’s mother should have done long ago. As an expert in musicals Steyn is tougher than he looks.

Funny, the alarmists accuse skeptical scientists of “having links to Big Oil”.
But, when Lord Oxburgh steps in to provide an whitewashing “independent review” of the climategate revelations, all the alarmist clones are satisfied that it’s case dismissed, nothing to see here.
Suddenly they cherish the views of Lord Oxburgh.
Well, nobody can sensible accuse Lord Oxburgh of “having links to Big Green”.
Because HE IS BIG GREEN!!!
I could have made the same observation about our friend Mr Gore. But just look at the head of the “independent” review that “cleared” the climategate crew:
“Oxburgh has paid directorships of two renewable energy companies, and is a paid advisor to Climate Change Capital, the Low Carbon Initiative, Evo-Electric, Fujitsu, and an environmental advisor to Deutsche Bank. Last month we revealed that Oxburgh had failed to declare his directorship of GLOBE, an international network of legislators with ties to the Club of Rome.”
BUT APPARENTLY – THAT’S ALL FINE. And we are to accept that the climategate villains were thus exonerated of all misdemeanors.
Because, we must assume that in the topsy turvy world of the eco-fascists – being paid giant amounts of cash money for your role in bleeding the regular energy consumer of enforced and unnecessary tariffs/taxes for over-priced bullshit – that’s all well and good. The work of angels, indeed.
I picked on Lord Oxburgh – but we could list many other examples:

Is it possible that Prof. Happer could get a restraining order on Mr Coleman and Greenpeace? Would it hold across State lines?

Greenpus are the lowest of the low, the-ends-justify-the-means cadre of eco-fascists. Somehow I doubt they’ll be investigated though, at least not under the Obama regime.

Sorry to belabour the point.
The Alarmed Ones, professional planet savers and self appointed do-gooders are beyond parody.
A sane rational person could not write fictitious characters as FUBARed as these creatures are in reality.
The Emperors New Clothes, describes human behaviour, unchanged in centuries.
Now as we mature, we mostly come to realize that we can’t cure stupid.
But you can’t allow stupid to steer in shoal waters.
Greenpeace is a bureaucracy, has been a useful tool for extorting taxpayer moneys for years.
They believe they are untouchable and protected.
Of course they are above the law, they are special, in their own eyes.
Professional protesters are pretty special too, never having had to produce anything useful to their fellow man, they are career politicians, who fear the “peoples choice”.

You could only agree with Moore – Greenpeace is an enemy of humanity.

December 9, 2015 10:00 am

Don’t forget Greenpeace’s campaign’s attempt to invalidate the Oregon Petition:
Only one false name has ever appeared on the petition. It was put there by Ozone Action (now Greenpeace USA) and removed immediately thereafter.

I am impressed by Happer and Moore. Look how they faced the Greenpeace’s tactic of entrapping Happer with intent to discredit him and thereby attempt to neutralize his devastating skeptical critique of the CAGW hypothesis.
Happer and Moore wonderfully went into IAO** mode.
** IAO = Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.
Note: thanks to that line by character Sgt. Gunny Highway, it was the first I heard of that old US Marine saying.

Watching the video, I was disgusted by the warmist politician’s shouting down of Dr Curry exercising her right of reply. Because she was cutting him to pieces, and of the two, only she has the expertise. As for that greenpeace interloper, words fail me. Though they did not fail Prof Happer, while the greenpeace invitee was a no-show.. Just shows ya. Bye bye Bunny, just keep digging that hole through to. China, where a stewpot awaits. Same in Texas….

The coal industry is faced with extinction based on phoney science. If a scientist is hired by the coal industry to defend its existence, the scientist is automatically guilty of corrupting science for pay. Meanwhile, the majority of ‘climate scientists’ take the easy route. They are well paid with tax deductible donations from communist billionaires who profit from crony capitalist ‘green’ energy and by ‘progressive’ government politicians who have quid pro quo agreements with said billionaires.
