"Notable Quotes"

"The IPCC published its Fourth Assessment Report in 2007 predicting global warming will lead to widespread epic catastrophe if not mitigated, however, they failed to provide the most basic requirement for effective climate policy: accurate temperature statistics.

The prospect that legislation and funding could result from flawed data collected through sloppy research should concern anyone (regardless of what side of the global climate debate one endorses).

As a longtime observer of this issue it becomes increasingly clear that the players seem less concerned with the accuracy of scientific conclusions and more concerned with protecting political, ego, and financial territorial imperatives. "
