That's just the way nature has always been, variability has always existed. There's nothing new about that." – George Landrith, president of Frontiers of Freedom Competitive Enterprise Institute "…predictions of the extent of future warming are based on implausible scientific and economic assumptions, and the negative impacts of predicted warming have been vastly exaggerated. In the unlikely event that global warming turns out to be a problem, the correct approach is not energy rationing, but rather long-term technological transformation and building resiliency in societies by increasing wealth." http://www.cei.org/sections/subsection.cfm?section=3 Accessed: June 17, 2005 George C. Marshall Institute "Climate Sensitivity – Still a SWAG…Scientific Wild-Ass Guess" by William O’Keefe. September 2004. George C. Marshall Policy Outlook ALEC "Absent from the debate is the discussion of human ingenuity and our ability to adapt to our environment; when the temperature increases, we turn on the air conditioner. More people die from cold temperatures than heat,…global warming could actually save lives" Excerpted from a report released by ALEC entitled "The State Factor: Global Warming and the Kyoto Protocol" by Patrick J. Michaels. Center for Defense of Free Enterprise “Policy wonks and scientists have long worried about the vast gulf that often separates facts from news stories and public perception. Perhaps few issues exemplify this better than global warming.” –Nick Nichols and Paul Driessen “Thankfully, it’s all just the stuff of Hollywood horror movies. Not only is the ACIA study flawed. It’s as phony as a three-dollar bill – as plausible as the ‘science’ in ‘The Day After Tomorrow.’” – Paul Driessen

“The stakes are certainly much higher this time – because these eco flimflam artists threaten to disrupt our economy, technology, health and prosperity, to ‘safeguard’ us from a ‘risk’ that is no more real than Tyrannosaurus rex bursting out of a lump of Cretaceous amber.” – Paul Driessen
