Notable Quotes

"Global greens develop stupid, horrible, expensive, counterproductive climate policy agendas, and then try to use the imprimatur of 'science' as a way to panic the world into adopting them. All too often, in other words, they fall prey to the temptation to make what the science says “clearer than truth” in Acheson’s phrase, in order to silence debate on their cockamamie policy fixes. A favorite tactic is to brand any dissent from the agenda as “anti-science.” It is not only a dishonest tactic; it’s a counterproductive one, generating new waves of skepticism with every exaggeration of fact."

Walter Russel Mead
