Steven Hayward testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Subcommittee on Oversight, May 25, 2011:
[T]he international diplomacy of climate change is the most implausible and unpromising initiative since the disarmament talks of the 1930s, and for many of the same reasons; that the Kyoto Protocol and its progeny are the climate diplomacy equivalent of the Kellogg-Briand Pact of 1928 that promised to end war (a treaty that is still on the books, by the way), and finally, that future historians are going to look back on this whole period as the climate policy equivalent of wage and price controls to fight inflation in the 1970s.

What? You trying to say that AGW is total BS? That any effort to control it is a mindless exercise in stupid, incompetent governmental excess of control? That there's nothing wrong with it that a governmental bureaucrat couldn't like, being an unprovable, untestable, and non-verifiable expenditure of taxpayer money and abuse of governmental force? That tightening controls like that just chases away business and tanks already weak economies?

Are you trying to say that?

Nawww, you must be wrong!!

Al Gore told me it was IMPORTANT!!

Mr. 0 said it was time MY generation DID something!

If what you say was true, then... then... I'd be a stupid... FOOL!

And that, well, that can't be! YOU must be the one who is wrong! Yeah. Yeah, that's the ticket! YOU are wrong!
