Stare at your enemy long enough and you become them.  The old USSR was a hotbed of science denial.  Early in the 1900s, Mendelian genetics in the Soviet Union was forcibly replaced by more politically-convenient but bogus Lysenkoism, and biologists could march to his tune or die.  In the 1950s, Belousov decided plate tectonics would be forbidden, because continents only bobbed up and down.  Once again, we find ourselves wearing the jackboots of our secret-police-and-empire- loving former foe. Each time politics dictated science, stagnation was the result, and there are many cases in many countries.  No Stalin here, though- just commercial and fundamentalist interests.  Stem cell research…climate science… Next?  The financial system has no need of independent scientists, Citizen Lavoisier.

Another square peg in a round hole. The fact that Trump has gathered another like minded denier with possible anti semitic tendencies should be no surprise to anyone.

Cenk, I guess you missed it in your own video at 1:04 where he says he believes in climate change.  It seems he believes it’s happening but doesn’t think it’s a threat and doesn’t see CO2 as a bad thing.   So your whole video was a red herring.

dont think you're following. most current climate change is anthropogenic and casued by co2 from fossil fuels. therefore co2 is a bad thing. you'll be telling us it's a good thing for everyone to carry a gun next.

“dont think you're following” I followed it but can tell you had difficulty understanding my comment by your ignorant response.

“most current climate change is anthropogenic”  Happer doesn’t deny climate change at any time in this video, in fact he does the opposite.  The anthropogenic argument was not brought up in the video so no need to discuss it in the comments.

“and casued by co2 from fossil fuels” That’s debatable. The top 5 contributors to the greenhouse effect are: Water Vapor, Methane, Nitrous Oxide, CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbons), and CO2. Many times articles forget about the other 4 besides CO2 and will even substitute a comparable CO2 value for the others as if they were the same.  Bogus way to do science.

“therefore co2 is a bad thing” Also debatable.  CO2 is necessary for photosynthesis in plants.  The plants are mostly water and carbon and the carbon component came from CO2.  Without CO2, you wouldn’t have much life on this planet.

“you'll be telling us it's a good thing for everyone to carry a gun next” Strawman fallacy.  Nobody mentioned guns.

Yes, those things are debatable. Everything's debatable. Just because you can argue a position doesn't mean any evidence is in your favour. And in this case, it's overwhelmingly not.
