The frontrunner to become science adviser to President Trump called climate scientists a “glassy-eyed cult” and falsely accused the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration of manipulating climate data. Princeton University physicist William Happer made the remarks in an interview published Wednesday by The Guardian, saying, “There’s a whole area of climate so-called science that is really more like a cult. It’s like Hare Krishna or something like that. They’re glassy-eyed and they chant.” Happer also supports prohibiting federally funded scientists from communicating their findings to the public.
