Willie Wei-Hock Soon, plus connu sous le nom de Willie Soon, est un astrophysicien américain né en 1966. Il est titulaire d'un Ph.D. et travaille au sein de la Solar and Stellar Physics Division du Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

Il est connu pour ses travaux sur l'influence majeure de la variation de l'activité solaire sur le climat terrestre, travaux qui minorent fortement l'influence supposée de l'activité humaine sur le réchauffement climatique.

Dans "The Maunder Minimum and the Variable Sun-Earth Connection", il écrit ainsi :

[L]ong-term climate change is driven by solar insolation changes, from both orbital variations and intrinsic solar magnetic and luminosity variations... There is no quantitative evidence that varying levels of minor greenhouse gases like CO2 and CH4 have accounted for even as much as half of the reconstructed glacial-interglacial temperature changes or, more importantly, for the large variations in global ice volume on both land and sea over the past 650 thousand years. ... [C]hanges in solar insolation at climatically sensitive latitudes and zones exceed the global radiative forcings of CO2 and CH4 by several-fold, and ... [therefore] regional responses to solar insolation forcing will decide the primary climatic feedbacks and changes.

Dans un article de 2007, "Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide", il montre que la menace des gaz à effet de serre sur le climat est exagérée et que leur effet est bien moindre que ce que soutient le GIEC par exemple.
