"There is a question from a gentleman in the fourth row. He introduces himself as Richard Rothschild. ... His question for the panelists, gathered in a Washington, DC, Marriott Hotel in late June, is this: 'To what extent is this entire movement simply a green Trojan horse, whose belly is full with red Marxist socioeconomic doctrine?' Here at the Heartland Institute’s Sixth International Conference on Climate Change, the premier gathering for those dedicated to denying the overwhelming scientific consensus that human activity is warming the planet, this qualifies as a rhetorical question." [editor's note: Get past the obvious bias here; this is a very good analysis of the issues surrounding "climate change" - SAT] (11/10/11)
