Congress told that Increase in CO2 will be
Good for Mankind

______________________________

27 Feb 09 - Princeton University physicist Dr. William Happer told a congressional committee hearing on Wednesday that global warming fears are "mistaken" and that the earth is currently in a "CO2 famine now" when you look at carbon dioxide (CO2) levels through geological time.

"I believe that the increase of CO2 is not a cause for alarm and will be good for mankind," Happer told the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Full Committee.

"Almost never has CO2 levels been as low as it has been in the Holocene (geologic epoch) - 280 (parts per million - ppm) - that’s unheard of. Most of the time [CO2 levels] have been at least 1000 (ppm) and it’s been quite higher than that. Earth was just fine in those times," Happer added. "The oceans were fine, plants grew, animals grew fine."

"The current warming also seems to be due mostly to natural causes, not to increasing levels of carbon dioxide."

"The IPCC has made no serious attempt to model the natural variations of the earth’s temperature in the past. Whatever caused these large past variations, it was not due to people burning coal and oil. If you can’t model the past, where you know the answer pretty well, how can you model the future?"

"I do not think there is a consensus about an impending climate crisis."
