"When your attempt at recreating the Congress of Vienna with a third-rate cast
of extras turns into a shambles, when the data with which you have tried to
terrify the world is daily exposed as ever more phoney, when the blatant greed
and self-interest of the participants has become obvious to all beholders, when
those pesky polar bears just keep increasing and multiplying – what do you do?
No contest: stop issuing three rainforests of press releases every day,
change the heading to James Bond-style “Do not distribute” and “leak” a single
copy, in the knowledge that human nature is programmed to interest itself in
anything it imagines it is not supposed to see, whereas it would bin the same
document unread if it were distributed openly.
After that, get some
unbiased, neutral observer, such as the executive director of Greenpeace, to
say: “This is the single most important piece of paper in the world today.”
Unfortunately, the response of all intelligent people will be to fall about
laughing; but it was worth a try – everybody loves a tryer – and the climate
alarmists are no longer in a position to pick and choose their tactics."
