Dr. Willie Soon is an aerospace engineer and a part-time employee at the Solar and Stellar Physics (SSP) Division of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and an editor for the New Astronomy scientific journal. He is a high-profile critic of the science of man-made global warming and has made the case that the sun is the cause for most climate variation. The UK Guardian has taken it upon itself to publish an article Dr. Soon, alleging payouts from the Koch Brothers and other sources involved in the production of fossil fuels in which as a result it has compromised his credibility and integrity.
In the below video, Dr. Soon answers someone who attended a lecture he held in 2013 and made similar accusations against him that are in the Guardian article. Greenpeace alleges that Dr. Soon failed to disclose his funding sources for some of his research. If he failed to disclose his funding sources as required by Harvard then that is wrong and I am sure he will make amends. However, it does not detract from the fact that Dr. Soon is a scientist who has a background in climate science and has come to his own conclusions. The weight of this article and the accusations against him are geared in order to embarrass or humiliate him for disagreeing with the so-called consensus on global warming as well as distract from the billions of dollars in government grants and left-wing foundations given to climate alarmists and environmental groups who stand to gain financially from the global warming racket.
