Quote of the Day: Danish Speaker of Parliament



While the rest of Copenhagen is running round in ever decreasing circles of alarmism and hysteria, it is refreshing that the Speaker of the Danish parliament has some cool-headed words of wisdom:

“The problem is that lots of people go around saying that the climate change we see is a result of human activity. That is a very dangerous claim,” Parliamentary Speaker and former Finance Minister Thor Pedersen (Lib) tells DR.

“Unfortunately I seem to experience that scientists say: ‘We have a theory’ – then that crosses the road to the politicians who say: ‘We know’. Who can be bothered to hear a scientist who says ‘I have a theory’ when politicians go around saying ‘I know’” Thor Pedersen says.

Thor Pedersen adds that the temperature has not risen in the past decade.

“I’m not saying that in the decade that the temperature has fallen or stagnated is enough to evaluate developments. But one should only say what one knows,” the Speaker adds.

“You should say that although we believed in our models, that the temperature would rise from 1998 to 2008, we have to admit that it has not risen. We cannot explain why it has not risen, but we believe we still have a problem. I’m just asking that people say what they actually know,” Pedersen tells DR.

If climate scientists and politicians did that, the world would be a far better place.

  1. Hang on …. a sensible comment on MMCC from a poli? What is the world coming to? He won’t last long!

    His last comment about the models is spot on. That’s exactly how scientists use to treat modelling, until this madness came along.

    Wish the “hide the decline” mob did the same.

    I guess this lone voice will be drowned out by the MSM reporting on the “faster than we thought” scenarios.

    Simon, keep up the great work.

  2. he’s sane! how did he ever manage to be allowed to speak I wonder?
    must have been an oversight , by the controllers:-)
