Haapala couldn’t be reached for comment this week, but as recently as Saturday he had gone online to defend his “unpaid, temporary position on the Department of Commerce transition, landing team"
Writing in his “Week That Was” newsletter on Saturday, Haapala responded to a Jan. 24 letter sent to President Donald Trump by two congressional Democrats demanding that Haapala be removed...Haapala’s involvement with the Department of Commerce transition was disclosed by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva in a letter they wrote to Trump last week demanding Haapala’s removal. The White House did not respond to a request for comment Monday. On Tuesday, it said Haapala no longer had a role in the transition.
In a refreshing change of pace from Willie Soon's Heartland slideshow, featuring Albert Einstein at a photoshopped blackboard denouncing "IPCC GANGSTERS " , Mr. Haapala modestly uses the third person to inform us that :
"A great influence on Haapala’s willingness to question conventional thinking are the writings of
Bertrand Russell, a British philosopher and mathematician. With no advanced degree in natural
sciences, Russell wrote very clearly on many scientific issues of the day. "
What ever would Professor Einstein & Lord Russell make of this?
