Quotes

...The position statement asserts that "climate change is a historical phenomenon and the debate will continue on the significance of natural and anthropogenic contributions." ALEC’s true colors are evident in a "climate science" presentation from last July, which included these patently denialist claims:
...This would stifle growth in roof-top solar systems and discourage energy efficiency and NRDC opposes it. For additional information: "Protect our natural resources for our health and future generations. Join me and take action."
"We believe coal demand has more or less peaked in China," wrote analysts for Jefferies LLC. "Based on our analysis, future coal demand growth will be lower than thermal power production growth, lower than power production growth, which will be lower than GDP growth."
...Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council, made the following statement: "This is a far-sighted action that will preserve for future generations a critically important reserve that can help reverse the decline of the marine environment. The President acted expeditiously, while the area is still largely pristine and undisturbed. The abundance of sea life there--rare species of whales, 5,000-year-old corals, hundreds of sea mounts brimming with life--is incomparable. This demonstrates the bipartisan support for protecting the area and should encourage other nations to protect their own valuable marine environments." Protect our natural resources for our health and future generations. Join me and take action."
