Dr. Richard A. Muller
UC Berkeley Physics Professor Emeritus
Dr. Muller’s sponsor will be Joe Clendenin
of the WACSC Program Committee.
About the Program
Dr. Richard A. Muller is a ground-breaking researcher and thinker on physics and climate change, and a National Security Advisor to the US Government.
Dr. Muller’s contention is that most of the proposed climate change solutions we believe in will not succeed. And that carbon tax, electric cars, even solar and wind power cannot significantly deliver climate change.
He observes that most of the predicted rise in CO2 comes not from the US or Europe, but from China (where over 100 huge coal pants were added in 2023), India, South East Asia, and Africa. And, that these locations simply can’t afford expensive alternate energy, period.
