One of the Trump administration’s senior advisers could be leaving his position on the National Security Council, E&E News reported Wednesday afternoon.

William Happer is reportedly leaving his post as a senior director of the NSC on Friday after National Security Adviser John Bolton abruptly resigned, The New York Times reported, citing three people with knowledge of the move. Bolton, a longtime foreign policy hawk, supported Happer’s efforts to push back against what some say is climate alarmism prevalent in academia.

Happer was slated to lead the Presidential Committee on Climate Security, a type of expert panel to assess the potential dangers global warming has on national security. Reports of the committee first began surfacing in February. (RELATED: Trump On The Cusp Of Forming Expert Panel On Global Warming, Experts Say)
