CHRISTOPHER MONCKTON, WILLIE SOON & DAVID R. LEGATES: 'The national science academies and the UN’s climate panel have profitably contrived what the late Stephen Schneider called “scary scenarios” on the basis of inadequate knowledge.Etatiste politicians and bureaucrats have gone along with them.'

Question: 'Are you concerned that the future of your children is at risk due to climate change?'
Tol: “Not for a moment. It disturbs me hearing people like Al Gore say that he is worried about the future of his grandchildren. Complete madness. The best estimate is that sea level will rise half a meter this century. That is from the ground to our knees.'
'Unless you raise funds for Greenpeace or are a politician who presents themself as the savior of mankind: then you gain by exaggerating things.'
Dr. Richard Tol used to be a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth.
His early research was on the statistical link between greenhouse gases and climate change.
He set out to prove Nordhaus’s low carbon price argument wrong – but ended up proving Nordhaus right.
Richard Greene served as an appointee of President George W. Bush as regional administrator for the EPA:
The EPA first addressed such (climate) controls in our country during the George W. Bush era, and I got to witness that effort as a firsthand participant.
Go ahead and challenge me on that if you wish, but none other than U. N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon backs it up.
Ban Ki-moon credits Bush for initiating talks that led to the Paris landmark international agreement and says he is “very much grateful” to the former president for “the beginning of our success.” What the EPA did before Obama took office was to begin the process of regulating carbon dioxide emissions — something never before done in the history of the agency’s mission to protect human health and the environment.
