  1. Come on now, less sarcasm if you please. Those UN-funded Mercedes Benz’s don’t just ship themselves to Ghana you know.

    Although I am still holding out for the SMFS’ plan on climate change. Appoint me dictator of the world, I’ll have everyone who utters the words “global crisis” shot and the problem will be solved. Or at least disappear.

    Go on. You know it makes sense.

  2. Other good ones:

    … we cannot allow the global average temperature to rise above two degrees centigrade….With a clearly defined target, policy can be designed to meet it.

    I assume she means global average temperature increase, not temperature, else we would have a rather different target. Nuclear winter anyone?
