Perhaps the soft-boiled-egg will now start to hit the electric fan

I saw this on a comment over at Legiron (Underdogs bite Upwards.)

Glad to see you’ve linked to this article LI. The Mail comes in for a lot of flack, but this article should be compulsory reading in every household in the country.

@ junican – here are few quotes from The Green Agenda. If you had any doubts that this is one gigantic scam these should convince you.

“We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination… So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.”
- Prof. Stephen Schneider,
Stanford Professor of Climatology,
lead author of many IPCC reports

“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”
- Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation

“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”
- Christine Stewart,
former Canadian Minister of the Environment

“The data doesn’t matter. We’re not basing our recommendations on the data. We’re basing them on the climate models.”
- Prof. Chris Folland,
Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research

    Thanks for bringing this site to our attention, Michael. It’s a pity the quotations it offers are not properly sourced atm (viz. when and where spoken or written).

  2. “Even if the theory of globel warming is wrong we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy”.

    The U.N. chief.

    And (even more bluntly) “no matter if the science is all phony….climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world”.

    The Canadian ex environment minister.

    The thing about proper sourceing is important (as Glenn Beck reminded his friend Andrew Britbart – ALWAYS provide a link to the full context, and if you do not have the full context do not publish).

    However, I will stick my neck out and say these are NOT out of context quotes.

    I just do not see how any context could save them.

    I agree, Paul, that a number of these quotations can do nothing but damage the credibility of their originators. That said, a solid attribution wouldn’t only contextualise the quotations. It would also help readers check and authenticate them – and that matters at least as much as the question of context.

  4. These attributions must be findable. Michael, can you help?
