Happer in the hopper

Dr. William Happer, Cyrus Fogg Bracket Professor of Physics, Princeton University, and buddy of Gordon Fulks, local incognoscento, ...
"I again ask whether or not Linfield College will permit any debate of this topic between knowledgeable proponents on both sides of the issue. After they invited Professor Michael Mann to make the case for climate alarmism (via his infamous ‘Hockey Stick’ graph) several years ago, they refused to consider any counter presentation, even from Princeton Professor of Physics, William Happer, a member of the US National Academy of Sciences." 
(OnymousGuy replies with a mordant snicker, and quite possible other sorts of snickers as well).
[Happer] ... has been in the news in the last day. He does not seem very happy about it.

My guess is that it had something to do with that headline in the Guardian.

Or it might have been the headline in the New York Times.

Or it might have been the headline in The Nation.

Or it just might have been the very fun event at the circus maximus known as the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, & Transportation, Senator John Thune. (R-StateOfIgnorance) Chairman,

starring Uncle Lester Senator Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz (R-WoefulStateOfIgnorance) and candidate for the Grand Old Party's nomination for President.

You can read for yourself the testimony of the Cyrus Fogg Bracket Professor of Physics, Princeton University. Better yet, read Eli's live-blogging of the event.

Please, no snickering.
