Overheard in the Climate Skeptic's Cafe.
Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters, August 28th, 2007:
If religious leaders are going to get in on the con, we're in
Sonja A Boehmer-Christiansen, Editor of Energy and Environment, on Sept. 16, 2007:
Right, and likely. Think of the much desired power (control over behaviour) this promises to religious groups.
Interesting in that Sonja appears as one of the non-Evangelicals with "special expertise in climatology or related sciences" to sign “A Call to Truth, Prudence, and Protection of the Poor: An Evangelical Response to Global Warming.”. This open letter was itself a rebuttal to “Climate Change: An Evangelical Call to Action”, which urged that Evangelicals take ownership of and take action on the climate change issue.
According to Sonja, the signatories to this latter document desire power, and should presumably be discouraged.
